Beanie the Hamster
New Small Pet Care, DIYs, Recipes, Cage Setups, and Stories, Every Tuesday!
Welcome to the DIY tutorial for this boredom breaker for small pets! Usually you see these spherical toys made from wood with fruit designs on them, but today I’m going to show you how to easily create it with cardboard.
Welcome to the Krinkle-It Foraging Tube Toy DIY Tutorial! I received a parcel the other day and to my delight it was packed with Krinkle-It paper shreds! As soon as I saw them I knew I wanted to make this DIY.
With this toy your hamster is provided with food, stimulation, and nesting material.
These toys are ridiculously expensive, and I see no reason to spend money on one when you can do it yourself! Today I’m going to be showing you how to make a few versions of the common, confetti-ish, foraging toy we all know and love.
There are many, many different substrates to choose from. Some safe, some unsafe. Some are more enriching than others, but the most natural of them all is soil. Sometimes natural is not always better, but today I would like to argue that soil is just as good or perhaps better than other substrates, from my personal experience.
Hello and welcome to the DIY tutorial for this adorable garden house for small pets! This house is two stories tall, with a grassy yard and little balcony. It’s a great toy/hideout for Syrian hamsters and mice, since they particularly enjoy being up high.
Stew has been doing really well, and the 27th will be one month since getting him. Today I will be talking about all the things I’ve learned about Stuart in that time.
I brought home my second hamster on May 27th, 2021. I then gave him 3 nights to settle into his new home before his taming began. This post will be documenting Stuart’s taming process and progress from May 30th to June 15th, 2021.
Stuart is doing really well, and today I’d like to share what the first three nights with him were like! I gave him these first three nights to settle in without direct human interaction. I thought it’d be neat to have this documented.
This is the post you have all been waiting for. It’s the post I’ve been yearning to write. Not only is it my 90th post, but it’s also one of the most exciting posts there is. There is no Future Hamster. There is THE PRESENT HAMSTER! Today, I will be sharing some updates, introducing the new hamster, and retelling his origin story.
Cleaning and tidying is a big part of hamster owning. Some people, such as myself, love it, and some… not so much. Whether you’re a neat freak or a cleaning procrastinator, these budget-friendly supplies and tips should make the cleaning and tidying process more efficient.
Hello and welcome to the DIY (do it yourself) twine carrot tutorial! These are quite common small pet toys, and are available in most pet stores. I used to have one of these toys for Beanie, and she had a great time decimating it. My version is smaller than the ones you’d typically find in stores, but it is also adorable 😍
