Quick question - CrayolaColours - 06-16-2010 07:24 PM

I have a hamster, and I like to keep my window open at night, and it can get kinda cold. I put a blanket over the top, and left a little bit open for air. It can get down to 60 degrees at night, but my hamster has a little igloo it sleeps in, and burrows in it's bedding. Plus it's really furry, could my window being open kill her? I already killed my gecko due to heat issues... *sadface* But that's a reptile, mammals are typically different.

A hamster is fit to survive in such climate naturally. It'll be fine.

If it does seem a bit too cold to the hamster and you have observed that the behaviors of the hamster is different than normal when the temperature is that low, then it's probably cold for the hamster even though she can handle it to a extent. I suggest experimenting at a safe level to find out. Keep it at room temperature for now.

If the fucking hamster is such a pussy it can't stand an open window, it deserves to die.

This is entirely dependent on what kind of hamster you have. If you have a "golden hamster" which are normally the ones you buy then here:

some PDF Wrote:Hypothermia. Golden hamsters are very sensitive to cold and may become unconscious at temperatures in the mid-60s or lower. Their breathing is very shallow and they
often appear dead, but may slowly revive when warmed in one’s hand. Avoid air tem-
peratures below 70 degrees in the room where your hamster lives, and keep the cage
away from cool areas, such as windows. Provide warm bedding, such as recycled paper
or tissue paper, for your pet to nest in; a small nest box also helps conserve body heat
when the hamster is sleeping.

Anyways, you can read about this shit in this PDF:

Denied. Had you played like that a week ago I would have only gotten slightly pissed with you. Today you struck a personal cord. This is the first time I have treated the internets as serious buisness, but I now have a personal issue with you. Now get the fuck out.

Someone is getting pissed. I am a fascist, I think that all weak things should die. Like you.

Ironicly enough Im actually a Nazi. Seig Heil and all that good shit and as of a month ago a member of the American Nazi party, so that shit doesnt work on me.

However right now you are pressing my buttons. This could be extreamly detrimental to your health.

There's another site which shows that hamster can go into 60 Fahrenheit. That's why I suggested experimenting to find out which is appropriate for the hamster and yes it depends on the hamster.

Denied, please click the magical x button in the top right corner of your screen and beat your own computer up. We'll like you better that way.


Re: Quick question - CrayolaColours - 06-17-2010 09:27 AM

Ironically, I got yelled at last night for having my window open, as it apparently heated up the whole house. They were like BAWW HUMIDITY

It wasn't humid at all last night.


Re: Quick question - Reptorian - 06-17-2010 09:33 AM

How many people did you exactly get yelled by? It's possible that they are in the right position in the sense of being over 50 percent humid. No arguments with you, just a suggestion.


Re: Quick question - CrayolaColours - 06-17-2010 09:40 AM

My mom and dad. But it wasn't humid at all, and I was freezing my ass off. The temperature last night was ten degrees lower than the air conditioner was set to.


Re: Quick question - Reptorian - 06-17-2010 09:50 AM

Some say that the diet they take, the food they take, and their body situations affects how long they can withstand at each different temperature. I think this has to be looked into.

But it's mostly that they're lying to you.
