This December I’m road-tripping from San Diego to work in Lake Tahoe. I’ll be staying in Lake Tahoe for the winter season, and I need to bring my pet hamster with me. Can hamsters travel in cars?

I’m glad to hear you are working in Lake Tahoe this winter! Luckily, hamsters don’t mind traveling, so you won’t have to find a pet sitter this winter. You can travel with a hamster in your car using a cage or small carrier. but you’ll want to make sure they are comfortable and safe.
Safely drive with your hamster following these tips:
- Transport your hamster in its regular cage to create a familiar environment.
- Include a solid-surface wheel so your hamster can expend nervous energy.
- Add food and a baby carrot in case he gets hungry.
- Provide a structure for your hamster to hide in.
- Protect your hamster from drafts and direct sunlight.
