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)
