       4. Feeding amount:

       The amount of food provided to hamsters is easy, but not easy to be less, because hamsters have the habit of storing food, if the food is less, it will be very uneasy. Therefore, if you add food every time the basin is always empty, it means that the food is too little. At the same time, you should also pay attention to clean up the food that hasn’t been eaten in time, especially the fruit and other moisture things, to prevent deterioration.

       Rats and mice are omnivorous animals and can eat anything. But the staple food is cereals: you can refer to the formula above. Water: rats can not drink water, if you want to drink, remember to boil water! Absolutely clean. Shishi’s mice and their mothers feed them fruits and vegetables to get water! Because they are very small, so a little water is enough! They like to eat green vegetables best. Remember that the vegetables must be rinsed and dried in the wind. Yellow sprouts and cabbage can be! But wash them all! Like tomatoes, cucumbers, apples and oranges can be eaten for them. About sunflower seeds. There are also a variety of melon seeds, such as sunflower seeds, squash seeds, watermelon seeds, mice are very fond of eating oh. Rats and mice like to eat sunflower seeds, but the fat content of sunflower seeds is high. If rats eat too much, they will cause obesity, partial food, malnutrition and other problems. Therefore, sunflower seeds can only be used as snacks or as non essential products to enhance feelings. They can not be fed too much. At most one or two can be eaten at most. But if in winter, you can give more rats to increase the heat, in order to spend the cold winter. Food not to be eaten. Although rats and mice are omnivorous animals, there are still some things that can not be eaten. If you accidentally eat them, they will have diarrhea in light, and they will die if they are heavy. Spicy food. Such as pepper, green pepper, onion, garlic, ginger, leek, nine layer culture and so on. Peach, plum, apple, etc. It is said that it can cause the rat’s heart rate to quicken, which may lead to shock and other symptoms. The detailed reason is not very clear, but it can be trusted. Be careful. The potassium ion content of these things is high, so it is easy to cause rats to eat too much, tachycardia and death. What people eat. The food that people eat, after cooking, is too oily and salty for rats and mice, which is very harmful to their health. Especially meat dishes or other oily snacks should not be given to rats!! About the environment. How to relieve the heat. Rats wear a thick fur coat all year round, so in the hot and humid summer, rats are very sad. Yunyun doesn’t like to let rats blow air conditioning (occasionally, it is OK), because it will reduce the heat resistance of rats. Several suggestions are put forward for reference. 1. Change the mouse house into a ceramic house, and rats can sleep in it cool. 2. Reduce the indoor temperature, open the windows and doors to increase convection, and turn on the electric fan for air circulation. 3. Put less sawdust, just put a thin layer. 4. Take the bottling water to the freezer for freezing and put it outside the cage. Remember to be careful not to let water drop into the cage. The ice bottle will emit cold air, which can make rats feel cool. 5. Put a small glass bottle of cold water into the cage, so that the bottle body will be cool, rats and mice can rely on heat dissipation. The reason for using glass bottles is that the bottles do not need to be bitten by rats and mice, and the glass bottles have a cooling effect. 6. Put a stone or tile in the cage, mice will sleep on it to enjoy the cool, but when selecting stones or tiles, pay attention to whether the edge is too sharp to cause damage to rats. How to keep warm. 1. Replace the rat house with a plastic one, which can be replaced by a napkin. 2. Move the rat cage to a place where the cold wind can’t reach. 3. Put more sawdust, about 3-5cm thick. 4. Napkin can be put in, and rats will make a warm bed to sleep. 5. When the weather is really cold, you can cover a cloth outside the cage to keep out the cold wind, but you should pay attention not to cover the rat too tightly to suffocate the rats.

       Eight taboos of hamster feeding:

       (1) It is forbidden to feed human food. If the salt content is too high and the seasoning is too heavy, it will increase the physical burden of rats.

       (2) No direct contact with the sun, rats are very afraid of heat, summer is coming, please use heat sink or marble for them.

       (3) If you don’t have to, wash your body.

       (4) Please know about your own rodent species. You are not allowed to raise them in cages alone or in different breeds.

       (5) If there is no psychological preparation or economic capacity, please do not keep female rats and male rats in cages. The reproductive capacity of rats is very considerable.

       (6) Do not use feed of unknown origin. Please discard it and do not feed it!

       (7) Prohibit the use of newspapers, newspapers too much ink.

       (8) It is forbidden to raise rats in too small space, and the space should at least have water bottles, food basins, small nests and other supplies.

       The basic equipment for raising hamsters is as follows:

       (1) Sink: anything, including a clean ashtray, small box, etc Pay attention to the edge. Don’t scratch the mouse.

       (2) Roller: please choose seamless wheel. The wheel with seam is easy to get stuck when running.

       (3) Water bottle: steel ball type water bottle is the best, there are also dropper type, the most important consideration is not to leak water.

       (4) Xiaowo: you can make it by yourself. You can use the paper box and paper box. You can also choose the small nest sold in the market. You can also use the glass seasoning bottle. Oh, it’s the same kind as the one I took from Lola.

       (5) Summer products: marble, heat sink, Baote ice, cold sofa, etc.

       (7) Warm supplies in winter: cotton, warm bag, socks, tissue paper.

       (8) Cage: there are high-grade rat cages on the market, and the price ranges from 100 to 300. Now think about it, it’s actually the most practical fish tank. It’s transparent on all sides and convenient to watch rats, and it doesn’t need to invest too much money. You can choose freely according to your preference and acceptance. But make sure the mice have enough space to play. If you buy a high-grade mouse cage, the roller will be configured in the cage. If you use a fish tank, you can also buy a roller.

       There are mice and cages, rollers and water bottles in the hall of xinmate pet market and xiaojinqiao flower, bird, fish and insect market. You can find them there.

       [¡ï please do not use wire netting for the cage chassis, as rats and mice are prone to fracture and injury]

       Basic consumables for hamster feeding:

       (1) Bedding material: pine sawdust, poplar wood, laboratory sawdust, etc. in winter, rats can keep warm and absorb water.

       (2) fine cat litter: it is suitable for use in summer. It’s cool. After absorbing water, it condenses into a block and can be scooped up. (you can buy cat products in the supermarket. Don’t buy crystal cat litter. It’s OK to buy ordinary cat litter. It’s made of small gray particles.)

       Please use the fine cat litter without perfume beads. ]

       (3) Corn Gen: used in summer, cool, but not absorbent, slightly expensive (not recommended).

       (4) For wood chips, please try not to use wood chips with fragrance and those with strong smell of decoration products.

       Precautions for mother mouse during childbirth:

       (1) During pregnancy, be sure to separate the female from the male. Male rats sometimes eat baby mice.

       (2) Please help the mother mouse to take good care of her health. Production is very harmful. You can use hemp seed, nutrition cream, nutrient water, dried fish, bread worm, etc. to let mother mouse increase nutrition.

       (3) Between the full moon of the mouse, please try not to change the items and bedding materials in the mother mouse cage. It’s easy to frighten the mother mouse, leading to non lactation or recycling (eating mice). Please do not touch them before the full moon!

       (4) Mice full moon, long hair, open eyes, weaning can leave the mother mouse, at this time, you can try to touch the baby mouse!

       (5) It is better for mice to wait until the full moon before feeding bread worms, which have shells.

       At this time, the baby’s digestive system is not complete, do not feed flour hydatid, easy to indigestion.

       (6) During pregnancy, the roller must be picked up. Sometimes, the mother mouse will ignore breast-feeding in order to play with the roller.

       Dietary considerations:

       (1) Please don’t look at mice too cute, give too much sunflower seeds or high calorie food, mice are easy to get fat, nutrition imbalance. Overweight rats are prone to heat stroke in summer, and their skin fat is too thick and easy to depilate. Sunflower seeds can be used as reward food for training rats. They love sunflower seeds.

       (2) Please don’t think rats don’t need water! Water must be supplied and changed every two or three days.

       (3) Please don’t feed too much at one time for vegetables and fruits, which may lead to diarrhea and death. Most vegetables and fruits contain pesticides. Please clean and dry them with water before feeding.

       (4) The snacks should be matched with the staple food. The snacks should be increased and the staple food should be reduced. Don’t give too many snacks. Fat rats are easy to get sick.

       (5) Please keep the feed and snacks sealed in a sealed container, which can be placed in the refrigerator. Please discard the food breeding insects and ants.

       (6) Bread bug is a mouse favorite, but the protein content is too high, give a few at a time, not too much.

       (7) Bird’s cereal is the best food for rats and mice. You can buy some mixed with it. For example, corn flakes, buckwheat, Cereals, raw peanuts, flax seeds, rice, wheat, sorghum, and raw melon seeds can be appropriately increased. Fruits and vegetables carefully!!! Try not to feed fruits and vegetables with large water content!!! Chinese cabbage leaves can be put for a day or two, until the leaf water evaporation is almost, and then feeding can supplement vitamin to rats. Rats like to eat lettuce

       Mouse body language

       How can we understand rats who can’t talk? In fact, rats have expressed some feelings unconsciously. We should observe their body language to understand them!

       The following is an explanation of the different behaviors of rats and mice:

       When you relax

       Grooming: hamsters can groom their fur in two ways.

       ¡ª¡ªThe first is in a relaxed state.

       ¡ª¡ªIn another case, after the owner stroked them, the mice tried to put their own smell on their bodies. Rats like their own taste!

       Ears down:

       The hamster’s ear down indicates that he is very low alert and is in a relaxed state. When the mice are alert, their ears are usually vertical, and they are very impressed by the weak sound of the surrounding environment. Because mouse vision is not very good, so they will use sensitive small ears to make up for its deficiency.

       On the ground:

       Seeing their lazy appearance, we know that they are really at ease! Many hamsters sleep like this.

       Tired body:

       Rats sleep when tired body, so as a master to see this is the best not to wake them up!

       Happy hour

       Climb to your hands:

       When the mouse is in a good mood, it will also climb up to its master and cajole its owner. When the owner reached into the cage and gently called the mouse’s name, the mouse climbed to the master’s hand, which means that they are in a good mood today!

       Bite the cage:

       The reason for biting the cage is not only to grind teeth, but also to be dull. On the other hand, rats and mice will also use this action to express their demands, such as going out to play or eat snacks.

       Walk back and forth under pressure:

       Don’t think it’s funny that mice often walk in the same route. It’s actually a sign of stress. When rats are nervous, they walk back and forth along the same route. If the owners see their performance like this, they should pay more attention to it!

       Intense running wheel:

       Some mice will use the fierce running wheel to vent their pressure and dissatisfaction. So don’t think running the wheel is a common thing. In fact, the rat is telling you that he is very uncomfortable.

       When angry

       He yelled back

       When hamsters feel threatened, they pose like this. Sometimes it’s the owner who suddenly reaches into the cage and frightens them. When threatened by their peers, they will yell back. Because they don’t have any expertise in dealing with the enemy, they just pretend to be fierce and scare the enemy away.

       Stand up and grasp up

       It means “I don’t like it here, I’m going to run away!”. If the rodent has this action in its own nest, then the owner should pay attention to it.

       Walk on the ground when alert:

       Sometimes rats will walk with their bodies down when they are out of their cages. This means that they are in a state of vigilance, as they usually do in unfamiliar places. When there’s any wind and grass, it’s going to go at full speed.

       Stand up and move forward:

       It’s usually a sign of curiosity. They stand high to see if there are enemies in the four directions, or to detect if there is any delicious food coming.

       The nose moves constantly:

       As mentioned before, mice have poor eyesight, so they will use hearing, touch and smell to make up for their lack of vision. When their noses move constantly, it means they want to spy on their surroundings.

       How to cultivate feelings with mice and mice

       The steps of cultivating feelings:


       When the rat comes home on the first day, don’t rush to play with him, because the mouse will be nervous when he is in a new environment, so let the mouse rest for a day.

       ¡ª¡ªHabits. From the next day, feed the rats at a fixed time every day, so that the rats will quickly get used to your hands and taste. Feed the method, put the feed on the palm of your hand, put your hand into the cage quietly, stop, let the rat approach slowly, don’t disturb the mouse when eating, otherwise he will be wary of your hand. At the beginning, rats may not be willing to approach or eat a bite and run away immediately. Don’t worry. Take your time!!


       When a week later, rats get used to the environment, they can change to large cages. At this time, I think rats should be more used to taking food from your hands A little mouse may have already dared to climb to his hand), or try to let the mouse eat in his hand (that is, hold the mouse in the palm and let him eat in the palm, but be careful not to let the mouse fall). While the mouse is eating, you can call his name gently and touch his head gently. Remember not to force. If the mouse is unwilling or afraid, take your time, Each rat’s personality is different, everything depends on the owner himself to figure it out!!

       ¡ª¡ªGet to know each other.

       Let the rat get used to the way you call him. For example, cloud will knock on the cage door and call the rat’s name before he takes the mouse out. Let the mouse walk to the cage door and smell my smell before holding him out. The owner should also understand the way rats like and dislike. For example, there is a mouse in the cloud family. If he doesn’t call him to the door to hold him, he must bite him first and then ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^.

       ¡ª¡ªMore interaction to build feelings.

       Once the rats recognize you, they will be determined.

       People often ask why rats bite me. In fact, it’s normal for rats to bite people, because you are a huge and unknown object to him. Of course, he must be on guard for his own safety. The only weapon of a rat is his small and sharp teeth.

       So don’t be sad or angry because of being bitten by rats and mice. It takes time for people to get acquainted with each other. What’s more, rats like melon seeds, peanuts and bread worms are the most popular food for mice. They are usually fed with rats in their arms, and the mice will be on cloud Walk around the street (be careful not to let rats fall off their bodies), so that rats will easily get used to the smell and sound of clouds

       Q452: favorite hamsters! If you are late, you can’t add it. Find another group. It’s better for us to communicate with each other than to ask on the Internet. Feedback is more timely

       The bowl is filled with their usual cereal or mixed grain, which can be sprinkled with milk powder, cereal and instant oatmeal. For added nutrition and protein, canned dog food (mix beef or chicken with a fork) and cooked egg white are also good choices. Fresh apples can also help. Baby hamsters will no doubt love these foods, because their main reference is to ensure a balanced diet and similar to the eating habits they used in their short lives.

       From the baby’s birth to about 12 days, you need to feed the baby day and night with a dropper, about three drops of “KMR” per hour. When they can start eating solid food, you can increase the “KMR” dose to 1-5ml, feeding every 2-3 hours, day and night. Adhere to this diet until the baby 21 days, can be separated from the mother’s independent life.

       To give them special padding to keep warm, you can choose white toilet paper without smell, and add warm cushion under the cage. Control the temperature and keep the temperature constant.

       Your little hamster is still so small, it is recommended not to feed solid food, first feed liquid, of course, a small amount of other food can also be fed, otherwise how can it be full?

       It mainly feeds on plant seeds, as well as on tender stems and leaves, fruits and occasionally insects. No hibernation. In winter, they live on stored food. In addition, some species are omnivorous, including frogs and other vertebrates.

       They tuck food into their big cheek bags and store it in their burrows. Up to 90 kilograms of hamster burrows have been found to store food. Hamsters perceive visual, tactile, auditory and chemical stimuli. In the search for prey, vision is the most important, but hearing and smell are also important.

       Hamsters are compact rodents from small to large. It is short and thick, weighing 30-1000 G. The tail ranges in length from 7 to 106 mm and is half the body length, scaleless and covered with dense hairs, while a few species are very short, less than half the hind legs; in some species, females are larger than males.

       Extended data:

       Reproduction mode

       Both males and females have multiple partners. During breeding season, female hamsters look for male burrows. During the period, the plug forms and seals the female reproductive tract, preventing subsequent males from successful insemination. ***Soon after, female hamsters often drive males out of their territory.

       Seasonal breeders, from February to November, and litter. Females produce two to four litters a year. The gestation period is short and lasts for 15 to 22 days. The average litter size is 5 to 7, but it can be as small as 1 and as large as 13. Young hamsters need about 3 weeks of care and 6 to 8 weeks of sexual maturity.

       Feeding manual

       [psychological preparation for raising hamsters]

       Hamsters are small animals with life, so please don’t raise them blindly until you have done enough psychological preparation

       First, answer the following questions:

       Do you have time to raise it?

       2. Do your family object to your raising small animals?

       Can you guarantee that someone will look after the hamster when you are away for a long time?

       Can you promise not to abandon the original freshness after it has passed. Can you find a suitable adopter when you can’t continue raising?

       If you are not sure about the above points, it is recommended that you do not raise them.

       [hamster food]

       (1) Please don’t look at the mice too cute, given too much sunflower seeds or high calorie food, mice are prone to fat, uneven nutrition. Overweight rats are prone to heat stroke in summer, and their skin fat is too thick and easy to depilate.

       Sunflower seeds about a week, two to four will be enough! It can be used as a reward food for training rats.

       (2) Please don’t think rats don’t need water! Water must be supplied and changed every two or three days.

       (3) Please don’t feed too much at one time for vegetables and fruits, which may lead to diarrhea and death. Most vegetables and fruits contain pesticides. Please clean and dry them with water before feeding.

       (4) The snacks should be matched with the staple food. The snacks should be increased and the staple food should be reduced. Don’t give too many snacks. Fat rats are easy to get sick.

       (5) Please keep the feed and snacks sealed in a sealed container, which can be placed in the refrigerator. Please discard the food breeding insects and ants.

       Edible food:

       Vegetables vegetables (such as Qingjiang vegetables), carrots, papaya (green and yellow vegetables are preferred) seed sunflower seeds, peanuts, walnuts, pine nuts (not too much) fruits, apples, strawberries, cherries, bananas, grapes (please don’t give too much because of the high sugar content) cereal chicken feed, pigeon feed, bird feed, wheat, corn, millet plants Clover, dandelion, Pueraria, plantain animal protein beef, chicken, boiled egg protein, cheese, milk, yogurt, insect, pet fish jerky.

       Feeding amount: the amount of food provided to hamsters is easy to be more than less, because hamsters have the habit of storing food, and if the food is less, it will be very uneasy. Therefore, if you find that the food basin is always empty every time you add food, it means that the food is too little. At the same time, you should also pay attention to clean up the food that has not been eaten, especially the fruit and other moisture things, to prevent deterioration.

       Raising hamsters can use a 50 cm square trough for raising tropical fish, with wire netting as a cover (it is easy to be muggy in summer, so pay attention to it). When using a wire cage, hamsters hold the wire and climb upward, which will cause the risk of falling. Therefore, it is better to keep the cage not too high and take down the wire at the bottom of the cage for use. The bottom of the cage is covered with wheat straw, hay, sawdust or fine newspaper strips. The feeding basin can be made of pottery, preferably heavier. Some branches can be provided for gnawing to prevent teeth from growing too long. Nests can be made of wood or paper. In addition to the cage attached, you can also use the nest box. The nest box is covered with hay, sawdust, newspapers, rags, etc. The sink will not scratch feet, but it is easy to accumulate moisture, so pay attention to keep it dry. In addition, the tank is deep enough to put a large amount of straw, hay and other cage bottom materials that can let hamsters sneak in, put soil on it, and then spread hay on it. Create a very natural environment for hamsters to dig holes and make nests.

       Drinking water can be used as a water feeder, which is installed at a height that is easy to drink. Add water to the vessel type water tank. Let hamsters play with water in summer, but don’t make the cage too wet. Hamsters have the habit of defecating in a fixed place. In the place where they often drown, they put urination or feces in it to make the bedpan smell bad. They will use this place as a toilet. If you don’t use the toilet, don’t force it. Just clean the cage regularly.

       Hamsters are omnivorous animals, can be given to eat pumpkin and other yellow green vegetables, cabbage, lettuce and other light vegetables; potatoes, beans, fruits, weeds, seeds, etc. It is also a special diet for hamsters. However, we should also pay attention to feeding some vegetables and fruits when the diet is mainly used. As a source of protein, it can be fed boiled eggs, cooked dried fish, cooked chicken and cheese, tofu, etc., and can also be fed some dog food, cat food, etc.

       Hamsters have the habit of storing food in their gills. Water should be replaced frequently. Wash the basin and water heater every day, and change fresh food and water. The nest material should also be replaced. Check the nest box, where the hamster stores food, leave some fruit or solid feed for the hamster to eat. The cage bottom dressing should be changed once a week, and the cage should be cleaned and disinfected once or twice a month.

       In the hot summer, the temperature in the water tank is easy to rise. In summer, it is better to move to the cage for feeding. Keep the cage in a well ventilated place, and be careful not to let direct sunlight. When hot, hamsters do not like to eat solid diet, should be fed vegetables and other water rich food. Store food in autumn. Don’t forget to check the nest box regularly to prevent hamsters from hibernating due to low temperature. When you are in a heated room, pay attention to the temperature difference between day and night. You can put a plastic bag on the cage, or put it in a paper box to keep it warm.

       Hamster mood

       Hamsters are less likely to communicate with their owners than cats and dogs. However, as long as you observe carefully every day, you can still understand the hamster’s mood. And hamsters can express their emotions. They can read these actions and messages carefully to understand their emotions.

       1. Spring: when you want to let hamsters breed: increase wheat, pumpkin, carrot, dried fish, cheese, etc., and reduce the variety of melon seeds;

       Don’t want hamster oestrus: vegetable based feeding, walnut, peanut, and other kinds of high protein to reduce.

       2. Summer: give more fruits and vegetables containing a lot of water, and give more water. Reduce feed.

       3. Autumn to winter: increase the amount of melon seeds, peanuts, cheese, cream, dried fish and carrots.

       (1) Generally speaking, vegetables and fruits are not recommended as the staple food of hamsters, because they can not provide the most basic nutritional needs of hamsters, but don’t ignore the demand for fruits and vegetables from the warehouse! Fresh fruits and vegetables should be given appropriately, which can provide fiber and water; but a large number of fruits and vegetables may cause diarrhea.

       How much should I give you

       Three to five days a week with fresh fruits and vegetables. When they were first exposed to this food,

       A week only need to give him a small piece, first let him slowly adapt; after this period of adaptation, and then slowly increase the weight.

       Don’t suddenly change the hamster’s eating habits, give him a period of time, slowly adapt, so that hamsters, will not cause a burden.
