(Makes about 16 small muffins)

- 200g plain flour

2. Pumpkin mixture: In a large bowl, beat the oil, eggs and milk. Stir in the pumpkin puree.
3. Combine the flour mixture into the pumpkin mixture. Stir until just blended (and lumpy). Be careful not to over mix as it will result in a tough texture.
4. Place baking cases in muffin tins. Spoon the mixture into the cases (each slightly more than 2/3 filled).
4. Bake for about 20 minutes in preheated oven of 175C (350F). Remove the muffins and cool on a rack for several minutes before serving.

How to train your hamster, not to bite.

Well, my new robo dwarf hamster, Lola, bites. Many people ask me how they can stop their hamster from biting, so i tell them, flick them in the nose, then i am blamed that i hurt their hamster. Let me get this problem straight.

How to train your hamster, PROPERLY:
1.) pick up your hamster by the scruff.
2.) Flick your hamster nose GENTLY.
Please aim correctly,m and don't hit too hard. The reason why I say that is because if you hit too hard, your hamster's nose will bleed. Also if you hit the teeth, the teeth will bleed and fall out, then you will have to give it mushy food which will lead to wet tail and your hamster might die. And if you hit it in the eye, it's basically like an 8th grader giving a pre-schooler a black eye, which hurts for the lil hammy.

And if that doesnt work, you may have not given it quarintine for at least 1 or 2 weeks, im sorry but your hammy will bite you for the rest of its lil hammy life. Good luck and best wishes, Sonia

Hello, hello, hello!

HI! Sorry about yesterday, it wasn't the best day. I had so many brain explosions of ideas that i couldn't think afterwards. This blog is of course about hamsters. So lets get to it. Its late, and for some reason my hamster isn't awake, her ears are down and her eyes are all the way closed, meaning she is in deep sleep. Does being a Russian Dwarf hamster have anything to do with how they sleep? Hmmm.... I'll need to look that up. My friend's hamster has mites, and he is losing some hair behind his head, have the same problem? Don't worry I have a remedy.

Mite removing

Step 1:Take a small, soft towel, and wet it with warm (not hot) water. Wring out as much water as you can. Rub the infested area until hair looks funny. READ: If your hamster has no hair in the infested area, just rub until the area is very damp, but not too wet.

Step 2:Next, dillute 5 drops of vinegar with 15 drops of water. Dip the small soft towel into the sollution and rub into the same area. Repeat step 1.

Step 3: PAT the area dry.

In a few days, you may see more hair growing out, this is a sign that SOME of the mites have been killed, as for the other mites, your local exotic pet vet must get those out.
