I have 3 mice and two dwarf hamsters in separate cages and was wondering if there could be any health problems in connecting their cages so they could live together? They get along fine when I have them sitting in my hands or when I let them run around in the bath tub. They don’t fight or even play fight. I have 2 Critter trail cages and I can easily connect them. I thought it would be fun to experiment but wanted to make sure that combining two species in the same environment wouldn’t cause health problems. Thanks!

I love my robo hamster and shes just too young to die. I just noticed she has lost the fur on her lower back above her butt. Also her skin is all scabby. I really cant be spending money on a vet. What are some treatments I can do ? She also shares a cage with another robo hamster, that one seems fine but I want to know if I should separate them, just in case? I looked up wet tail and I dont think its that. Please help. – Sandy
My hamster has been acting weird and her eye looks funny. Can anyone give me a list of signs or anything that tells me if my hamster is sick or is just becoming old? She is a full adult. Thank you!
I guess I will add what her eye looks like. One eye is squinting, almost shut while the other one is open like it is supposed to be.

My hamster has a lump on her chest! Should I be worried? I recently saw that my golden hamster has a lump on the inside of her chest. She is acting perfectly normal, and isn’t showing any signs that she’s in pain. Also, she’s not losing any hair, but the lump is a fairly good size for such a small animal. Please help! – Annie

Hey everyone, I just got two guinea pigs (one for my brother and one for myself) and my brothers always squeaks when you put her down or just when she is in her cage. I do understand guinea pigs squeak but she tends to do it a lot. For example, I put her in the cage and she was squeaking a lot. Why?
I have a hamster. Can an expert or even not but has knowledge about Syrian hamsters help me.
1.) If you put two hamsters-’Syrian’ already in a cage and gets use to it, will they not fight and kill each other because they are known to kill one another and to be alone in one cage
2.) How to take good care of it. Can you give some tips?
3.) Why do they not drink if I put water in a small bowl? Does it need to be warm? I think my water is a little bit cold.
Help me please. I’m a newbie to pet these animals. Thanks!
