  4. Hi all! We have 4 4mths old hamster up for adoption! Despite separating the little cuties, one of them was apparently pregnant and recently gave birth. Do message me (or whatsapp) at 93799237 for pictures of them if interested! We are located in Aljunied, but we could arrange a meeting place if possible! Thank you all!
  5. Our beloved winterwhite hamster Eren passed away on 17 Apr 2017 @ 11.45 pm. She was adopted from this forum when she was abrt 10 months old where the owner was unable to kept 2 fighting hamsters together. She was bitten on the nose and was aggressive when she first arrived to our home. Slowly she was more friendly and enjoyed our company. She like walnut and strawberry treats and would stored it in her mouth. She would dosed off easily anywhere and would dropped off to sleep next instant. Occasionally she would nipped at my wife small toe and walk away. My daughters would play with her at night before going to sleep. The last 2 months b4 her passing her health was deteriorating, her fur was thinning, rashes on her neck, she was limping on her left leg. She tried the ex wheel but keep falling off as the left leg was not holding her up. later she was unable to climb up the wheel, we helped her up and she did a bit of running. later she was unable to use the exercise wheel altogether. The last 3 weeks her right leg also had problem of supporting her walking, it would collapse, her daily routine of inspecting and cleaning her hideout and territory diminish and later stopped. She tried to walk up the 2nd floor but her right leg was getting weaker and later she no longer visited it. We removed the 2nd floor. It pain and heartache to see her walk and fall every time. In the last few days both her hind legs were unable to move she would drag herself around using her front legs we move the water and food closer to her hideout, her appetite was weak and she sleep most of the time. We fed her walnut and strawberry treats which she happily ate to her satisfaction. The last day of her passing she was very sick and skinny and not eating. We knew it a matter of days. In the evening my youngest daughter came home and sayang and pampered her the whole nite. When I hold her in my hand she opened her eyes and moved her front limbs, I fed her a small piece of tofu which she ate, and some water. We stroke her head and body, sayang and my wife talked to her, she nibble my finger as if to acknowledge my/our concern or company and saying " Don't be sad, I am alright". My eldest daughter came home at abt 10 pm, she love and take care of her a lot. She hold her in her hand pampered and sayang her until she passed away at 11.45 pm. We had seen 3 vets on her condition, she had multiple problems, slip disc, 2 lumps and rashes. She should be abt 2 years old and the vet said it a matter of time. My daughters still pampered and stroked her body late into the night and put her back to the cage which she call home. Next day we took a last look at Eren stroke her body and spent some moments with her and said goodbye to her. We put her in a box filled with her favourite bedding, tissue, food, walnuts and strawberry treats and proceed to have her cremated. We collected her ashes in a small beautiful container 1 week later. She crosses the Rainbow Bridge and in Hamster Haven now, a paradise where she will be happily run free with new friends.

  12. My syrian hamster have been grooming a lot after i changed bedding after i bring her out of her home.. Is her behaviour normal or she is too stressed or nervous?
  13. Hey all! Just an update. I went the Bin route with a TOYOGO bin as I have them unused and new at home. Will be housing a Syrian and expansion works will be the next step for more adventure room. Be it a 2nd level or side by side expansion...it's still an option space depending. So sharing the progress of what is planned. I cut the holes with a heated Kitchen Knife over the stove. ** Do this in a ventilated area and if you can...use a filter mask (I used the ones I had from SARS..lol) as the fumes are dangerous! Never inhale and if at any time you feel tired, giddy or weird, STOP and head outside. If like me your doing this in a HDB apartment, make sure your kids dont come near and work near a sink or bathroom in case you get burnt.** That aside, the holes with be covered with wire mesh and screw held in place. I've already sanded smooth the cut lines and working on the wire mesh as I type this. Hopefully completed by today, pending excited interruptions by my 2 daughters! HAHA!! Thanks to 'leily' and the suggestion of the IKEA SAMLA this may end up the 2nd level with the SAMLA as the base....Rest assured the expansion is the next project! cheers!
  14. Checked i did! Thanks Leily! Message sent. We can discuss thereafter! Appreciated!
  15. Hi, do check out my post. I've got 3 Syrians for adoption. As long as you follow standard international care minimum, I'm sure we will have no issues.
  16. Hi, I've got 3 5 week old Syrian hamsters for adoption. There are 2 girls and a boy. If you are interested in adopting one, PM me a picture of your cage and your number. Alternatively you can also DM me on Instagram @hiding_hamsters I will be screening each adopter strictly. I reserve the right to decide who to adopt them out to. Thanks.
  17. Didn't think about that one though, Thanks for the heads up! But halfway thru the bin project. So will finish that off and see where we go from there. Thanks!
  18. IKEA SAMLA. The largest one. No need for a cover
  19. I use bins for my robos too.
  20. Understand this thread has been silent for now, but I'm back! Looking into getting a hamster soon and decided to take the cheaper DIY route. The IKEA tho nice, is too long and cost a little too much for my liking. Ended up going with the BIN Cage. If anyone is interested in how I am making mine, lemme know and I'll be glad to post some pics and the process! Till then Cheers! Tim
  21. Hi all! It's been sometime since I came around here and sincere apologies. My daughters have grown up and are asking for a pet as always. So decided to have a Hamster to grace the home once again after some time away from it. So in a nutshell, happy to be back here to share and learn. Looking to adopt a Syrian but in no real rush. Still fabricating the DIY Bin home for it. Got the holes cut out and left with the wire mesh and screws. Then its a clean-up, get the bedding and important accessories before I adopt. I'd rather have the home ready before bringing the Hamster home. Till then, glad to be back! Cheers Tim
  22. hamsters already adopted... thanks
