Thought I would share today my hamster gets his first piece of carrot! He has what looks like cupcakes my sister surprised me with buying and he takes it out of my hand! I read hamsters need fruits and vegetables as part of a healthy diet. WE cut It up yesterday getting todays beef stew ready to put in the crockpot first thing today! I hope he likes it!

I am sure your hamster will enjoy the carrots. It is also good for them to have something solid like that to chew on.

I'm sure he'll love his carrot. My pet sheep likes carrots too - and bread, lettuce, cake. When I read 'carrots' I was reminded of a YouTube clip I saw today where a guy drilled out a carrot, added little holes in the side, a clarinet mouthpiece then played the most amazing music.

YOu are so lucky having a pet sheep! I am not allowed in my area! I can give my hamster lettuce but I can't give him cake as they say you cannot give your hamster anything with sugar in it! He has some hamster treats he loves!

@Marty1 We don't have hamsters in Australia. And we're not allowed to import them - or gerbils. We do have guinea pigs.

@JudyEv I am forbidden to have a guinea because before I remember ever having one my parents and sister had one and the gitl guinea pig had babies and my mom come into the room and she was reating her babies. My mom detests guinea pigs. I was thinking of a gerbil but we never knew anyone who ahd one and never had one outselves! WE jave had hamsters!

MY junior year of high school I had a rabbit and you know she would NOT eat a carrot no matter what! But celery leaves I put them on her cage ca,me back two minutes later and I could almost believe she inhaled them! WE had a lot of stew while she was here so we could buy celery! Wouldn't even eat celery but those leaves they were like Heaven to her!
