I'm coming back!

Hi guys!!!

So I decided that being a blogger is too much fun to give up. I missed blogging during that year long break. So let's do some more updates-

I WILL be blogging at least once a week. I decided to be home schooled this year so that I can devote more time to blogging and.....


That's right, YouTube is back. But I switched channels. So now, you can find my Youtube Here (<<click) . I will try to do vids weekly, but I dunno if I can or not.

I'm also changing the name of this blog, back to Hamsterpedia, just so I don't have to change it ever time a hamster passes.

Now, I have a question for you. Do you guys have any Halloween theme ideas for my cage? I would love to have it be completely Halloween themed.

Where are we now?

Hi everyone! Did you miss me?

I'm just going to let it out and say that I completely forgot about this blog. So let's do some updates, and this will be the last post.

Did I ever get another ham?
Yes, I did get another ham. I got another winter white named Cilantro, but he had health problems and passed before I could even make a post about him coming or going.

Are you still into hamsters?
Of course! I will always love their little faces.

Do you have any hamsters right now?
Yes, I do!! I have a Syrian ham named Pumpkin. You can see pictures here! (<< click)

Will you still use your blog?
If you want me to! I can always keep blogging if you guys want to see more updates, but if not I think I will stop :)

If you were to stop, where can we find you?
First place (and the place I will ALWAYS be) is the Hamster Hideout Forum
Second place, as always, my email will always be on this page if you have any questions need to be asked.

What are you up to these days?
Well, I am home schooled, and that takes up a lot of time. I also have Youth Group, Volleyball, extra classes, babysitting, pet sitting.

What about my other random questions?
Leave them in the comments and I will answer them!

Goodnight Mocha

     God got an angel back today... Mocha

     Yesterday, she was so happy, a little bit too happy. She was playing all day. She would not stop. Let's not forget, hamsters are nocturnal. So for her to playing all day was a little odd.

     This morning I woke up and went over to Mocha's cage. She was laying down, and I thought she was just sleeping. She was laying on her side with her eyes semi- open. I started to pet her, and noticed she wouldn't get up.
     I picked her up, and she still wouldn't get off of her side. I switched her to her other side to make sure that she didn't get hurt, and she looked fine. When she breathed, you could hear something click. I read that the sound is phlegm in your hamsters' lungs. It scared me.
     I made the conclusion that she died from a stroke. She died in my hands. She stretched out really big, and curled up. That was her last breath.

Rest in Peace Mocha <3
You are in a better place, and I'm glad the suffering didn't last long.

P.S. I will still continue to blog, don't worry. I do plan on getting a new hamster, although not to replace her, but instead in remembrance.

***SLACKER ALERT*** And surprise pictures

Oh my gosh guys. How did it get this far?! My last post was in August... now it's October! I know, I've been slacking. But my schedule lately has been insane! And I don't know about everyone else, but here in America, we get HOURS  of homework. I can't say sorry enough. For example, I did four projects yesterday. Talk about over-scheduled.
     Don't worry though, Mocha still has my attention :). I tried to do some fall pictures, but they didn't exactly work out... well... I'll just let the photos explain that.
P.S. I forgot to show you the dog pictures from when I dog sat... oops!

Hope you guys enjoyed! I'll try to post more often, but with my teachers, I don't know if that will be possible. My goal will be to at least post once a week though :)

YouTube videos again??

Hey guys. You may have noticed that I haven't been on YouTube for a while, and that is because my camera broke D:. So when my dad  surprised me with a new smart phone, all I could think of was YouTube! I think I may be starting back, but I'm not sure... What do you guys think?

Mocha is eating her yummy salad right now, which is just lettuce and oats... But something as simple as that is so delicious to her!! 

Back to YouTube, MegaPiranaha88 has a new 2000 subscribers contest, which is for all small animals, from hamsters to bunnies to guinea pigs!! I encourage you ALL to enter! Here is the video!!

Dear Mocha,

Dear Mocha, 
     Even though you are still asleep, I want to write this right now. You are driving me insane by peeing in your crittertrail tubes. And to make matters worse, you also pee in your wheel. I've tried potty training you a billion times. You are making me mad. So to be disciplined, I made another level in your habitat... Wait, WHAT? That doesn't sound right. But whatever, enjoy your new level. Another cage is coming closer!


Yup, guys! I made another level in Mocha's cage, out of popsicle sticks! Haha, it was super easy. I will try to upload some pictures soon! Mocha is sleeping right now, but I'm honestly considering reading this note to her... xD. Fun things have been happening on the hamster hideout forum.. Join us! Send me a friend request! My username is... Well, of course- Jaide. 
I hope to see you all there soon! 

I'm Back, new recipes

I'm back!!!!!! First of all, I just want to say I'm sorry for not posting. I ended up taking about a month break from all electronics, so that's why I was gone. 

Today I'm going to be talking about some of my favorite hamster treat recipes. Here are a couple of youtube vids---

Before making any hamster treat, you want to make sure that the treat is suitable for your hamster. For example, owning a winter white can sometimes be hard when trying to find hamster treats that do not have fruit or other sugary ingredients. This also applies when buying a hamster treat.

There are some treats that you would not think would EVER be suitable for any type of hamster, so I'll show you a couple of those.

Gerber Puffs-

 Gerber puffs are actually baby snacks, because they easily dissolve in water. They are about the size of your thumbnail, and they are suitable for all hamsters, AS LONG as you read the sugar levels. If your hamster is a diabetes prone species, then I recommend comparing the sugar levels, and getting the lowest one. These can range from $2 - $5 in US dollars, and there are about 75 puffs in each package. These can be found in the baby section in most grocery stores. There are some things like this, so if you live in a country that doesn't produce this, you could just check the ingredients and see if it is suitable for your hamster :).

Millet Spray/ Spray Millet

Bird seeds for hamsters???? Totally. That's right folks, this stuff is completely safe for all types of hamsters. Not only is Millet Spray safe, but also tons of bird toys are safe as well. But we can talk about that later. Millet spray is basically just bird seed, that is stuck together in little link- like things. I haven't bought millet spray yet, but I know that the Petland closest to me, one of the links are $0. 50, and 3 are just $1.00, so it's insanely cheap. HoppingHammy has some cute clips on youtube of her little Winter White, Strudel, eating her millet spray. It's adorable. This can be found in the bird section of pet stores :D.

So there ya have it! A couple of different treats for your hamsters. If you have any questions, make sure to ask my in the comments, or send me an email, at

Special thanks to the Guinea Sisters for reminding me to step up my game on blogger :P. (Joking)
