Reduce Your Dwarf Hammy's Stress‏

Here are your dwarf hamster tips for today:

- One of the biggest ways to reduce your dwarf hammy's
stress and increase his health and energy is by allowing him
uninterrupted nap times... too many hamster owners wake their
hamsters in the middle of their naps just to play with them!
This miscommunication is due in part to their pet's unusual
choice of sleep and play time.

Dwarf hamsters are nocturnal creatures, which means about
the time you are ready to go to bed, they are rearin' to go!
So the best time to play with your dwarf hamster is in the
evening as he's starting his day. It's also not a good idea
to keep a hamster cage in a child's room as your hamster may
create some noise during the night.

Here are a few more extremely valuable Dwarf Hamster tips
for you. Did you know that:

- You should be careful when giving your dwarf hammy fruit.
Fruit serves great as an occasional treat, but don't overdo
it! Dwarf hamsters are prone to diabetes and giving them
too much fruit is simply too much sugar for their systems
and can pose a danger to their health.

- Dwarf hamsters are social creatures. While other hamster
species can't be housed together without trying to kill each
other, dwarf hamsters can live together happily under the
same roof. These guys live best as pairs and have even been
shown to be happier when living with a roommate. So pair
these guys up so they'll have a friend and companion (but
don't forget to make sure the pairs are of the same sex).

- Not only are dwarf hamsters cuter than other hamsters (shh!
don't tell the other hamsters I said that!) but their small
size makes them that much more adorable as well. These guys
grow to only four inches - tops - in length and can easily
fit in the palm of your hand.

- Dwarf Hamsters are gentle, sweet animals and although they
may be shy at first, once they are tamed and trained, they
love to play and to be held.

Anyway - it seems that BoomBoom, one of my Dwarf Hammies,
may have sent some of you a letter a few days ago. My
apologies, but I could not contain his enthusiasm about "The
Complete Guide to Dwarf Hamster Care" - he's just so happy
with all the Dwarf Hamster tricks I've picked up over the
years from breeders, and veterinarians like:

- How to make our Dwarf Hamsters like us better

- All about common dwarf hamster illnesses and the simple
things that prevent them (ie. using the proper bedding for
their cages)

- The Optimal dwarf hamster diet, including which fruits and
vegetables are nourishing, and which our little hammies have
trouble digesting

- Exactly how to train your dwarf hammy - (and get him to do
tricks like stand up on his hind legs!)

Anyway - BoomBoom really wants me to get you to take another
look at
... do you think we could honor his request? (I know you'll
be glad you did).

All Our Best,

George and the Dwarf Hammies :-)

PS - The dwarf hamsters you buy in the pet stores vary
dramatically in age, so it may be difficult for you to
determine exactly how old your new pet is going to be.
However, if you buy from a breeder, you should try to find a
hammy that is no younger than four weeks old, and no older
than 3 months old (preferable closer to 2 months).

Even if you do purchase your dwarf hamster from a pet store
or adopt him from a rescue, there are things to look out for
and questions you can ask to make the adoption a successful
