I acquired my hamster, Mabel, ~ above the 4th, she was the youngest in the cage at the store, however she was running around and also being playful, not skiddish or something anything, she permit me pick her up and wasn"t nippy. I took her home and set up her cage. She has actually dust free bedding, vitamin in she water, she food is nice, she has treats, chew blocks, some toys, a small house, a wheel, and also a lot of stuff to store her occupied. She"s making use of her wheel in ~ night, she"s eating she food & treats, chewing she blocks up. She plays v the tissues I put her in her little area ~ above the peak of the cage. I store her cage clean, and have removed any soiled bits. She appears happy, ns don"t take she out and also hold her often so she can adjust, I open the peak area and will pet she sometimes, and also she lets me and also doesn"t run. I"m just curious why she ears space still back. Castle were back when I experienced her in the store and I didn"t think anything of it, and also I"ve to be looking it up and also saw various reasons. Any thoughts? >:

Ears back can display a authorize of stress and anxiety or illness. Have actually you checked out her urine / poo lately? has she been drinking lately?

Were they giving vitamins in the water at the petstore together well? ( i recommend you to just offer her water there is no the vitamins. The vitamins room unneeded unless claimed so by a vet. ) i heard that the vitamins can make the water negative tasting, and the hamster might not want to drink.

She might be simply a small stressed. Or she might still it is in a small nervous? You say you acquired her 4 work ago? sometimes it takes animals weeks to feeling comfy in their homes.Perhaps even maybe a bigger cage would assist her out Syrians space quite big and carry out prefer to have lot"s that space. Is there any method you could get your small darling a bin cage of any sort? They are super simple to make and also don"t cost much at all! You may see an advancement in she happiness and those cute tiny ears!I carry out hope the ideal for her though.

Yeah I"ve viewed her use the bathroom, and also cleaned it up. I"m not sure if they to be at the pet store. It"s simply a everyday liquid supplement, i shouldn"t placed it in she water anymore?

Edit: ns didn"t answer to that part, but yes she is still drink the water through it in there, and drinks a an excellent amount. Everything seems healthy around her, she"s playful, eating & drink well.

Also, i think her cage is large enough for she for the moment, she"s really tiny still, she takes up prefer 1/10th that the upper area if that. And also you can build an additional floor top top this cage therefore I"d most likely do that once she gets a little bigger. She deserve to fit her totality self right into the food bowl and still have actually room around her. >:

Hmm, that"s odd. She sound perfectly fine! execute you view her shake? Iike a dog does to obtain excess water off? does she choose at her ears?(Yeah, hamsters do not need a complement of vitamin in your water because their food "should" already carry out them. I don"t think it would certainly do any kind of harm, however it"s not needed. )

Ah, however just because of her size does not mean something is suitable. If you stick a grown man on a single bed, he fits? however I"m positive he won"t it is in comfortable do you see what I"m saying? do you by any type of chance have a Petco roughly you? their dollar-gallon-sale is walk on and you deserve to pick increase a 20 gallon tank for $20!!! That"s a steal!

huge space is a requirement for a hamster. Advertisement cages (like the one girlfriend have) sadly space not suitable. Once your tiny syrian girl grows, she is going to need a MUCH bigger wheel. The wheel will sadly no fit her forever. Plus, i say take benefit of that awesome sale going on. The ends might 2nd!

Yeah i planned ~ above upgrading her cage as soon as she was a little larger. :> I have actually a tank currently I could use, and I have actually a larger wheel for her as soon as she it s okay bigger. Us were walk to adopt a rat around 8 month ago, and also decided against it after ~ purchasing a many the stuff, therefore we have actually larger wheels/houses/other goodies for once she outgrows her present stuff.

No she doesn"t shake or pick at her ears, she"s active and everything.

Can some hamsters just have folded ears? >:
