Found Hamster

Yesterday I went out to dump the garbage and I spotted a habitrail in the dumpster. I threw my garbage in and something moved in the habitrail and guess what it was a hamster. Needless to say I brought it into the house and I am trying to find a home for it.  I know nothing about hamsters, he dosen't even fit into the tubes attached to the habitrail.  What are some ways of taking care of this critter. He's so fat and cute, but I haven't any idea of what to do for him except on how to feed him.  ???

Omg. Thats OUTRAGIOUS and horrible.
I cant believe someone would throw their hamster in the garbage.

Do you live in edmonton???? Does the hamster look like he has "balls", their pretty obvious if he does, if he doesnt then its a female. What color is he?
Does the habitrail cage say habitrail mini??????? I cant picture a hamster who cant fit in a standard size habitrail cage.
Let me know your location and some details about the animal! If your in my area I could take him.

I just realise this website is probably american and not canadian. Sorry Sad

You can visit any pet store and theyll give you everything you need for a hamster. By the sounds of it, he needs to be kept on a pellet diet, there very common in the pet stores and give them all the vitamins they need....it sounds like he may be overweight OR
The cage is actually a mini cage meant for drawf hamsters or mice. And you need a new cage!
The new habitrail tunnels are actually bigger so a new cage might do him well! He also needs a wheel if he doesnt have one! that might also be why hes so big.

Hamster NEED exercise or they die. You can also invest in a ball so that he can run around outside the cage.

Go pick up a book on hamsters or surf some hamster info pages!!!

Hamsters' northern range extends from central Europe through Siberia, Mongolia, and northern China to Korea. The southern portion of their range stretches from Syria to India. Throughout dry, open country they inhabit desert borders, vegetated sand dunes, shrubby and rocky foothills and plateaux, river valleys, and mountain steppes; some live among cultivated crops. Geographic distribution varies greatly between species. The common hamster, for example, is found from central Europe to western Siberia and northwestern China, but the golden hamster has been found only near a small town in northwestern Syria.

Visit your local pet store and they will help you. If you can't, just give it food, like sunflower seeds.
