Hi, I was thinking about getting a hamster for my two kids, ages 12 and 10, but they usually come into my room in the middle of the night, which would leave the hamsters upstairs. Would the hamsters be ok up there by themselves? Also, which is the best kind of hamster for them? We were thinking about winter whites, is that a good move?

My hamster has curled up his bottom (left or right, cant remember) feet and kind of limps around. He's definitely hurt it, probably because he tries to get out by going on the top of his house and hanging onto the mesh. No bone sticking out, nor blood, and apparently it can A. become black and drop off, or B. chew it off, but throughout the night, he was fine. We'll see whats up with him today, but please reply if you know whats up with him.

If you get him a block of wood to chew on, that will shorten his teeth. If that does not work then I suggest taking him to the vet.

My hamster has been pulling his fur out at the sides which did not start until we bought coloured bedding from pets at home... he has been seen by a vet for treatment but appears to still be doing it... he is a very well loved spoilt hamster... any tips on what we can do for him would be appreciated xxx
