Hey, I have a hamster preferably I would buy it a fluff bedding because its more cozy and I would buy a plastic cage because its more safer and easier to clean I hope everything goes well p.s my hamster was quite a fussy eater so I got him his natural habitat food and I treat him with fruit donuts and chocolate drops just make sure she/he doesent
feel left it and doesent mix with a girl or boy hamster because they could end up fighting hope this helps Billie

Personal ex. says:
I love the pine bedding, it absorbs odor well, is clean and safe.
Use an aquarium! But supply wood chew toys! They reduce misaligned teeth from chewing on metal bars!

Clean once a week and spot clean during the week. Make sure to handle your hammie every 24 hours once he is settled as they have only 24 hours of memory :P Be sure to give him 3 or 4 days to get used to his new environment before you start handling him though so he doesn't get wet tail which is severe diarrhea caused by stress that can cause your hammie to pass away. Make sure your hamster has food and water daily. Make sure he has chew toys as hammie teeth never stop growing. And when you handle him each day give him a quick look to make sure he is all healthy, and just so you know glands are normal don't pick at them. You probably already know most of this but that's my quick run down. I hope you enjoy your new friend.

definitially the carefresh paper bedding! the wood shavings are awful for their respitory systems! and I think plastic cages are easiest to clean.
