Hi everybody! This is my *very first* video tutorial ever! :) SyrianPumpkin asked me about this the other day, and I decided that instead of explaining to her, that I would make a video to actually show it! Now there is no right or wrong way to do this, it's just how *I* happen to do it. :yes:





My hamsters can chew normally, so I didn't mash it up as much as it could be, but you get a general idea. You can make a small batch ahead of time and refrigerate for the day, then reheat in the microwave as needed. NOTE: ALWAYS TEST WITH YOUR FINGER TO MAKE SURE IT'S NOT TOO HOT.

Lastly, you can also feed other options such as plain yogurt, soft cheese, baby food, or applesauce. The more variety the better!

Please feel free to leave any comments or questions. They would be much appreciated as there was a lot of work and time put into making this, and thank you for watching! xoxo

awww, I love the guest appearances by Wonton and Baklava at the
end, giving your gourmet efforts the seal of approval! Baklava is
all, "yum, Mom, got any more?"

very nicely done! when you have both your hands in the video
demonstrating how to crunch up the moistened pellet, is your
camera on a tripod? very realistic height from where you'd guess
your normal line of vision would be!

Your videos are sooo awesome- I think they should be on animal planet. The music, graphics, and movements are all choreographed perfectly!

Looks like your mix gets 2 thumbs...[or hamster thumb nubs] up, lol :laughing:.
I am so happy to see your little furbabies, Wonton is cute as ever and Baklava looks so good :applause: :lovestruck:

Thank you everyone! :lovestruck: It was a great "pick me up" to read all of your comments as I've had a slightly "off" night.

very nicely done! when you have both your hands in the video
demonstrating how to crunch up the moistened pellet, is your
camera on a tripod? very realistic height from where you'd guess

misspixy: Great guess! It was indeed on a tripod for those parts, and I did try to place it around eye level for that reason. Thank you for your very encouraging and lovely reply!

Oh my goodness that comment meant SO much, hammyfriend! Thank you thank you! Video is something I've recently come to like, but usually get overwhelmed looking at professionally edited movies and commercials and feel like I'll never get to that level of editing, but thank you!! :hug:
