These include wood shavings, shaved corn cob, coarse sand, and other materials that you can find at your local pet store that are marked hamster-safe.Make sure the litter is marked chemical free and safe for pets.
Stay away from straw, because the tough strands can hurt the hamster’s cheeks.
Also avoid fluffy bedding products like cotton wool because they can stuck in the hamster’s toes and feet.

Cut off lids so the boxes don’t have tops and bottoms, then cut out little doors for the hamster to get in or out. If you use tissue boxes, make sure you get rid of all its plastic and serrated, or sharp, edges at the opening.
