What kind of supplies do you need for a hamster?

I saved enough money for a hamster and the supplies. I am going to the pet store but I want to make sure I have all the equipment. Can you tell me some?

You need:

.Cage
.Bedding
.Bed (like a hamster igloo)
.Wheel
.Water Bottle
.Food Bowl
.Food
.Treats (optional)
.Chew Toys
.Hamster Toilet (optional)
.Sand and Sand Bath / tub (optional)
.Hamster Ball (optional)

Pets at home is a good shop but is very expensive for supplies, I recommend 'Farm and Pet Place' I buy from them a lot (in store and online) because everything's great quality and really cheap!! If you order with them online, you receive your package within two days! Everything's also always well packaged! Or you could just find a local one =) You could also look in the local independent pet shops in your area and see what bits and bobs you can find!

You will need things like a suitable sized cage, hamster bedding, good quality hamster food,food and water bottle, a wheel, hiding places like a house, small hamster chew toys(they sell safe ones at the pet store) hamsters prefer to have many places to explore so extra tubes and toys to alternate in to enclosure,out of cage exercise ball.
Good luck with your new baby

A tank or cage that fits their size
A water bottle
A food dish
Food
Bedding
A place for them to hide (like a little igloo)
Treats
Another toy (something they can climb on or play in)
A wheel that fits their size
And maybe even some bedding that a pet store may sell that has some cotton in it. This is good for putting in the little igloo because they'll use it as their official bed.

A cage, some kind of water transfer, some hamster food, treats, a small food bowl, flooring inside the cage, some toys, an open space in your house, make sure that your house doesn't have any small places it might crawl into and never come out (they can die from that)

a cage, food, water holder, water, hamster wheel, bedding
Optional
Hamster ball, Hamster house, and any other additions such as salt licks and treats.
but the #1 thing a hamster needs is a responsible pet owner/s.

-A spacious cage, or a tank if you get a dwarf hamster, as they can fit through small spaces -Food and an attachable water bottle; not a water bowl as it will spill -Chew toys. Hamster's teeth NEVER stop growing, so they'll always need something to chew -Bedding, preferably hypoallergenic -A hamster ball or wheel for exercise -And of course, the hamster itself. If you want a more vivacious hamster, I would suggest the dwarf, although they may not be as prone to handling. If you'd like a hamster that's less energetic but loves handling, I'd suggest the syrian, or golden hamster.
