Introduction to Tiny Houses

The Tiny House Movement

The tiny house movement is gaining momentum and popularity for it cost effectiveness and simplicity. People who support this movement are happy to live in a downsized home -- their tiny house is a lifestyle that they adopt/adapt and are happy in doing so. While one might argue the disadvantages of living in a tiny space, the financial freedom that it brings along cannot be disregarded.

The average size of a house in the United States of America was 1,500 square feet in the 1950's; now, when the family sizes are shrinking, the average house size is 2,400 square feet. The lavish spaces in a 2,400 square feet house lies dormant for most part of the year. One such classic example is the living room, which serves it purpose for a couple of hours during the Christmas season... rest of the time its existence is hardly noticed or acknowledged; ditto for the multiple bathrooms, the huge dining room, bedrooms, and garage parking. The cost one pays for a huge home that is hardly used is hefty -- a mortgage that stretches almost until the end of one's retirement. Add to this the maintenance cost and the carbon footprint of a huge house!

Hamsters are fuzzy little creatures that are easy to care for. There are many fun facts about hamsters. There are over 25 different hamsters in the world but only five can be kept as pets. The biggest hamster is 34 cm or 12 inches long and the smallest hamster is about 51/2 cm or 2 inches long. Hamsters are easy to take care of. The oldest hamsters live up to four years old. They can live for two, three or four years.

The heart of a hamster beats between 300 and 500 times in a minute. They have teeth that keep growing just like the teeth of rabbits. That is why they keep munching and biting stuff. It is important to give them dog biscuits to prevent them from biting the bars of their cage. They also need their toenails to be clipped using a nail cutter. If the hamster bites, try to put sandpaper on the base of their running wheels so that it can file the nails when the hamster runs.

Hamsters have a good memory. They can remember other hamsters that are related to them. They also respond to names. When you call your hamster by name, it will come to you. There is a hamster type called the Syrian hamster that comes in forty colors. If you love different colors, try keeping the Syrian hamster for a pet. Remember to keep a male hamster in its own cage. Keep two male hamsters into two different cages. Male hamsters fight and bite each other when they are kept together. These are some amazing facts about hamsters.
