Hamsters make a good starter pet

Hamsters make a good starter pet

A lot of us grew up with hamsters or had a friend who had hamsters. They can make a good starter pet. It can help teach your child the responsibility of being in charge of another living creature. There are a lot of different types of hamsters such as dwarf, Syrian, Russian, Chinese, and hybrid.

Hamster like to burrower so you need to have lots of bedding in their cages to hide under. They also enjoy tubes to create little nests. When they are young, it can be difficult to tell if they are female or male.
You can buy two hamsters thinking they were the same gender and ending up with many more hamsters?
Hamsters are an easy pet to take care of. You can feed them hamster food, vegetables, and little hamster treats to give them a good life.
Kaytee Fiesta Max Food - Hamster and Gerbil - 4.5 lb.
You should change the bedding weekly or twice a week depending upon how many hamsters you have.
Most live only a year or two which can make it hard for younger children to understand.
Absorption Carefresh Small Pet Bedding - 10L
Hamsters need to have exercise so giving them wheels to run on or a hamster ball to run around the house.
This physical exercise is good for them. The tubing and cages come in a variety of colors. You can arrange them in straight pathways to other larger home areas or curve them around to reenter the same cage.

Most of the cages are plastic, your hamster may try to chew or claw out. Some hamster owners go with a metal wire cage with tiny slits to avoid the chewing escape. Your preference will determine the type of accessories you purchase.

You shouldn’t handle your pet hamster a lot but they do need some contact so they do not become scared when you do. Make sure you always wash your hand before and after. Be careful with little children.

Hamsters can be a lot of fun for at any age especially if you want an easy pet for your child can care for.
You will want to make sure you feed your hamster but not over feeding them while maintaining proper exercise. When your hamsters procreate, you will want to separate out the mother and children from the rest of the crew.

Keep your Parrot busy with Toys

Keeping your Parrot busy with Toys

A well-furnished cage should have a minimum of ten toys.
Parrots should not be easily seen in their cage.
This is their home and they should feel camouflaged. In the wild. Parrots live in trees so they can be heard, not seen.
They build their nest inside trees surrounded by more trees. They raise there, young using the safety of other trees.
Image
Good toys have different shapes and textures for the bird to explore and destroy.
Some of the toys needs to make your pet bird work for food.
These are toys that make them work for their treats or foods. Parrots in the wild will spend the majority of their time hunting and foraging.
Toys stimulate their mind and help replicate actions they would execute in the wild. Proper toys and placement enhance a healthy life in captivity.

Parrots think they are working for food while people sees birds playing with toys as birds; playing with bird toys.
Your pet parrot is always thinking, and they think playing with toys is their job. The need to forage is what nature gave them to survive.
If you provide no means of foraging, your bird will seek other avenues.
They may chew on your furniture or personal belongings.
It is important to encourage your pet parrot to work for food because it is a natural behavior.

Some of their toys should be made to give the stimulation of preening . The A & E Cage Company makes a wonderful Large Preening Bird Toy.
Image
Birds love to preen, and those that don't have a buddy on hand will appreciate this preening toy.
Adorned with brightly colored ropes to stimulate your bird and satisfy his instincts. Attaches easily to most bird cages with a metal ring.


Large birds like macaws and Cockatoos may have a huge appetite.
Introduce hardwood toys into cages and perhaps toys with hard plastics so they can spend more time on the various pieces.

The balance of toys should be easily shredded.
Toys may be store bought or home made. Parrot toy parts are available and helps keep toy making economical.
Soft wood, paper, leather and other textures are important for the bird to explore and destroy

Introduce pieces of food like broccoli or corn, using one of many commercially available or home made toy holders.
The food on the toy holder rewards them for playing.
Jungle Talk Nut Maze Bird Toy - 9 in.

The more textures, shapes, sizes and colors the better.
Diversity is important because in the wild your birds eat a diverse diet.
A large selection of toys helps maintain your feathered companions interest.

The majority of toys should hang or be placed in the upper third of the cage.
Introduce a few more to the middle third (without hampering access to food dishes) around a perch made from soft wood,
comfortable to grasp depending on the size of the bird’s feet.
The bottom third of the cage should remain relatively uncluttered to allow the bird to walk freely.

Spot-check toys and perches on a daily basis looking for frayed or sharp edges that may potentially harm your bird.

The more you change the toy and perch arrangement, the more you challenge your companion parrot.
It helps them socialize and helps avoids “toy-phobia”
Parrots can develop phobic reactions to new people, new furniture, and even new birds.

Dog Urine Stains, How to remove them

Dog Urine Stains, How to remove them

Dogs can be housebroken and trained to let you know when they need to go outside to use the bathroom.

and then attend to the problem.
Use a rag or some paper towels to soak up as much of the mess as possible and then clean the area with a mixture of cold
or lukewarm (never hot) water and some sort of cleaning agent. Natures Miracle Stain & Order Remover with Power Sprayer works well for this.

Litter Box Accidents, What can be done

Litter Box Accidents, What can be done

Cat owners can get frustrated when it comes to litter box accidents. It is the number one reason why cat owners take their cats up to animal shelters.
When your cat does not use the litter box, it is usually due to an underlying problem.
Try to find causes for this problem, before you get frustrated with your cat for not making it to the litter box.

Litter Box Accidents
One reasons why a cat begins to refuse to use the litter box may be their litter box is dirty.
Many cats are extremely fussy about the condition of their litter box, while others will use it no matter how full it gets.
If your cat has a litter box accident, the first place you should check is the litter box.
Some pets prefer that their litter box cleaned out after each use.
This may be time consuming for you, but it may be a simple fix to this problem.
If you start a daily routine of cleaning out your cat litter box, it may solve the problem.
Booda Cat Litter Liner - Drawstring - 35 in. x 19 in. - 17 pk

Another possible problem is there are not enough litter boxes for the number of cats you have. You should have at least one litter box per cat.
Cats like to have their own space, and this is especially true when it comes to their litter box.
Many veterinarians recommend that even if you have only one cat, you should have at least two litter boxes.

In addition, when it comes to litter box accidents, look at the type of litter you are using and the size and shape of the litter box.
If you have a tray litter box without a lid, maybe your cat would feel more secure in a closed box.
Marchioro Deluxe Enclosed Cat Pan - X-Large - Assorted
If you have an older cat, or a young kitten, you cat may have a difficult time getting in and out of a closed top box.
Watch your cat carefully when he or she uses the litter box. If you find that, they are having a difficult time getting in and out of the litter box and consider getting a different box.
Also, look at the type of litter you use. Your cat may be extremely fussy about the smell or texture of the litter.
Many people preferred using the scoop away litter; however, many cats will not use this type of litter, because it sticks in the paws.
You may also find that the litter you use causes a lot of dust that is disagreeable to your cat.
Everclean Cat Litter - X-strength - Unscented - 14 lb.

Some Litter Box Health Issues
Your cat may be refusing to use the litter box, because of health related issues. If you have tried all the above tips and nothing seems to be working, then it is time to visit your veterinarian.
Cats that have bladder problems, urinary tract infections, kidney failure and diabetes are more prone to litter box accidents than healthy cats.
You need to take your cat to the vet and have a thorough health exam performed to find out if your cat is suffering around an ailment.
If this is the case, your veterinarian can prescribe medication to help your cat.

Habit and Your Cat’s Territory
If your cat has been ill or have stopped using the litter box for any of reason, you may find that your cat returns to their old ways out of habit.
It is extremely important that when your cat has a litter box accident, that you clean the area thoroughly to get rid of any odors that may remain.
In addition, your cat may have not stopped using the litter box at all but instead, your cat is marking his or her territory.
This is especially common in multi-cat households or when you bring in new pet into the home.
This is also more common in males than females.
Even male cats that are neutered can mark their territory by spraying urine.

When you determine why your cat is having litter box accidents, you can find a solution.
It takes time and patience; however, this is much more preferable than getting rid of your cat.

Cleaning a Dirty Aquarium

Cleaning a Dirty Aquarium

It takes some effort to keep an aquarium clean. This will give you some guide lines for doing that. A fresh water fish tank takes about 30 minutes to 60 minutes of work a week based on the size of the tank.

Equipment you will need:
1) You will need a clean 5 gallon bucket. This must have not been used for anything else.
2) A gravel cleaner or gravel vacuum and some hose.
3) A bag of natural or synthetic sea salt
Aquarium Pharm Aquarium Salt - 65 oz.

You will need to clean the tank each week on the same day and the filters every 2 or 3 weeks.

Be sure to unplug the tanks heater if you have one. The water help cool the glass on the heater if removed it could crack, or the glass could totally shatter. Be sure the heater is not only off but unplugged from the wall. A small crack in the heater could be more then enough to cause a shock to you that can be fatal.

After the heater has cooled you can safely remove the it from the tank or it the heater is submersible you can just push it down to the bottom of the tank.

Remove any decorations that is in the tank, All that should now be left is the small gravel at the bottom. Using the gravel vacuum, so you do not have to get your hands wet. You will need to stir up the gravel to get the dirt that has settled between the gravel into the water, and start removing the water into the bucket with the gravel vacuum. Do not throw out the water you will still need it to clean the filters.
Aqueon Water Changers

When using the gravel vacuum, every second or two move the gravel cleaner over an inch or two and repeat this process until you have removed 15 percent of the tanks water.

Now its time for you to clean the Aquariums filters. The inside of the filter has bacteria, that help break down the nitrites and nitrates that are in the water. To make sure we don’t kill all these aquarium friendly bacteria, clean the filter materials and sponges in the dirty water that is also full of the good bacteria. Take everything out of the filters and rinse them of in the bucket of dirty aquarium water, then give the sponge a couple of squeezes in the bucket and reassemble the filters, and put them back on the tank.
Marineland Penguin BIO-Wheel Aquarium Power Filters

Now before adding the water sea salt needs to be added to the tank. All water has some amount of salt in it and to replicate the natural habitat of the fish there must be salt in your tank as well. Add approximately 1 cup of sea salt for every 50 gallons of water.

Now you can add water to the tank, but you must make sure the water is the within a degree or two of the temperature of the water in the tank. A drastic change in the tanks temperature suddenly can throw the fish into shock and kill them or weaken their immunity and help give them a fish disease. I recommend filling the bucket with hot water and checking it regularly till it is the same as the tanks temperature, then slowly add the water to the tank, start the filters and the heater.

You only need to clean the filters once or twice a month.
The water in the tank should be cleaned on the same day every week.
