Though caring for a hamster may not need as much work as a dog or a cat, they still need you to be a lovable and committed owner. As you can see, I’ve devoted a page to each area of care that a hamster needs. You need the basics, like food and water and a checklist to help you keep track of what you have and need. Then you need extras, like toys. Read through my guide to all these things on my hamster care pages, which you can find on the menu, and hopefully it will teach you all you need to know about caring for a hamster.
