My Little Bundle of Happiness

Hi Everyone.
Meet Poppy, my Syrian hamster.
She is an adult now, and no longer obese.

I also decided to blog these photos of the products which I'm using and
a short review to help out certain people whom are having difficulties 
shopping for good hamster related products here in Malaysia.

I took these picture in November 2011. (So Poppy was still fat then)

Ok, and now for the products.

OxBow Essentials, Harry Hamster, Burp Cocktail Mix
Now firstly, some of u would know just how hard it is to get GOOD brands here.
The choices here are so limited. So, I hope this helps.

One of the best brands I have used so far is 'Harry Hamster'. Their mix do not contain a lot of sunflower seeds unlike in the 'Burp Cocktail Mix'. In fact that was mainly why my hamster got so fat. 

Harry Hamster food is nutritionally complete and it is the only hamster food approved by the 'National Hamster Council'. It does not only contain grains and seeds but also an equal amount of pellets to promote dental wear. Not to be confused with rabbit pellets. The pellets here (if thats what u call em) are different in colour, size and texture and would provide interest and also enabling natural foraging behavior. My hamster got so much more healthier with this mix.

I usually also add 'Oxbow Essentials' to her daily food supply for more nutrition. I do this because I want her diet to be balanced as my hamster sometimes still picks on her food. With these, I am assured that she gets her daily nutrition. She usually eats 5/6 pellets a day.

Thats all for today.
Hope that helped some people :D
