• Why are my hamsters dying?

    Best answer: 1. Throw away the old food and buy new. 2. Dump the food bowl every day. Sometimes seed shells look like food, even when there is no food there. 3.

    Best answer: 1. Throw away the old food and buy new.
    2. Dump the food bowl every day. Sometimes seed shells look like food, even when there is no food there.
    3. Change water every day.
    4.Use bedding made for hamsters. Some wood shavings such as cedar, are bad for hamsters.
    5. Wash the cage once per week using mild detergent, such as dish soap.
    6. Provide a wheel, because hamsters MUST run each day for health.
    7. Do not handle hamsters if you are sick. Hamsters can catch viruses from humans. If you're sick, ask someone to help you out.
    8. Be sure they are warm enough.
    9. Be sure there are no drafts, no noxious fumes such as carbon monoxide (leaky dryer vent, bad furnace, etc.). Miners used to take canaries into the tunnels because they would die from noxious fumes, thus warning the people to escape.
    10. Learn signs of hamster disease such as "wet tail".
    11. Use only safe cages, and don't add things to the cage that aren't "hamster-safe.
    12. Don't let them chew on houseplants.

  • Isn’t it hillarious watching Schumer trying to coax Trump into a deal that doesn’t include building a wall?

    I just got two 5 week old females the other day and every time I open up their cage they start jumping (their cage is a tank with an wired extension) and one of them almost made it. I can t change their water or feed them without them trying to escape. I m doing my best to bond with them too, I m not sure if its just because they are females, I ve never had a problem with my males trying to escape. Could this be just because they are young ? And how could I keep them from jumping, any help is appreciated, I really don t want them to get out because my dog would eat them.

  • Why was my boss angry when I did this (please read story)?

    I've been looking for a job for a few months, and I've been applying every few days. Finally, I was granted an interview by this company, who told me that they would pay me about $35k more than I make now. A few days later, I received an offer letter, which I promptly accepted.

    I've been looking for a job for a few months, and I've been applying every few days. Finally, I was granted an interview by this company, who told me that they would pay me about $35k more than I make now. A few days later, I received an offer letter, which I promptly accepted. I told them that I could start in about two weeks. Needless to say, I walked into my manager's office the next day, presented the signed offer letter, and said "If you can't match what this company will pay me, then I'll resign." Why was she so upset? I'm trying to negotiate the best deal, and she seemed so angered. Needless to say, she's going to hell, but why the hard feelings?

  • I made my hamster a cage, and now my dad wants to tear it down. How to get him to not tear it down?

    About a week ago, I made my hamster an amazing hamster cage for her to live in. She already had a cage, but I thought because the cage is bigger, she would be happier in the one I made. I used the woods we had in the spare room for about as long as I have existed. My dad has no plans for the wood, and can easily... show more
    About a week ago, I made my hamster an amazing hamster cage for her to live in. She already had a cage, but I thought because the cage is bigger, she would be happier in the one I made. I used the woods we had in the spare room for about as long as I have existed. My dad has no plans for the wood, and can easily get new wood at the store we have near our house. I really want to keep the cage. How do I convince him? He really gave no reason to have to tear it down.
