Cute and cuddly, friendly and playful, there is no doubt that small animals such as hamsters, chinchillas, guinea pigs, gerbils, rabbits, mice, rats and ferrets make wonderful pets. Most pet parents enjoy their time spent playing with their hamster, gerbil or mouse through interactive small animal supplies, such as run-about balls or super pet cruisers.

As with any pet, it’s important to learn about the animal prior to bringing them home. For instance, of the many small animal cages available, it’s helpful to know which type would best suit your pet hamster or guinea pig. Secondly, knowing which type of food, bedding and other small animal supplies are preferred by your pet mice would help you better accommodate them.
