Stress is a major cause of illness in a hamster and can
be caused in many different ways. Noise during the day
may prevent the little fellow from getting his sleep,
Removing his little secret store of food, disturbing it
while it is in its nest, changing its cage, etc. Avoid
stress and your hamster will be happier and healthier.
Rinse out the hamsters water bottle and refill it with
fresh water every day. I use bottled water (Or
sometimes boiled water) as my main supply here, near
London, is not of the best quality.
Do not allow sunlight to fall on the bottle each day as
this will cause green algae to grow.
Do not use a bowl for water as the hamster will tip it
up and make his cage wet.
