  1. I have a winter white hamster and she has a mass on her right ear it has gotten so big I don’t know what to do . Is this cancer ? To be honest I wanted to cut it off but don’t want to hurt her and I don’t want her to die but right now with this dang virus I’m not really financially stable

  2. You can ask to walk a neighbor s dog, for example, or volunteer at an animal shelter. Most animal shelters or rescue groups welcome volunteers to help care for homeless pets or assist at adoption events. You ll not only be helping yourself but also be helping to socialize and exercise the dogs, making them more adoptable.

  3. For older adults interested in adopting a senior dog or cat, there are programs available that can subsidize pet adoption fees and the animal’s medical care. See Resources section below.

  4. I am sorry☹about what happened with both of your hamsters you should never have two hamsters together only1hamster you should get a new hamster olny1 hamster and tell me if you a new hamster?

  5. Hi, we got a teddy bear hamster about three weeks ago. Hes been fine til a couple days ago we noticed some brownish liquid on one corner. I thought it was pee as he peed the same color on me that night we bought him at the pet shop. I cleaned it up and this morning saw the same thing. Hes been fine and active, sleeping all day and exercising all night so I wasnt worried. This afternoon, we bought a female hamster and put her in his cage. At first it was funny as our male wouldnt leave our female alone. I think he was trying to mate with her. But she was so busy exploring the cage she started to bite him a few minutes later. They then started fighting and the female would keep running away. We left them and went to cook some lunch. When I peeked in a few minutes later, I noticed red liquid in one of the houses they were previously fighting in. It sucks because I dont know who it came from. What might have happened? We would really appreciate all the info we can get. Pls help 🙁

    • If you keep two Syrian hamsters in the same cage, fighting is commonplace. Dwarf hamsters on the other hand can live together – but not always. They too can fight. If you have Syrian hamsters, you should get two cages. If they are dwarfs, continue to monitor them and if the fighting continues, you will need to separate them as well.

    • You should not have two hamsters together also if there is blood that is not good i am sorry☹about what happened you should get a new?hamster only won hamster ok.
