Congratulations Lunarstar, Gus is so cute.
Toilet paper really is the best for their bedding.

I'd stick with plain white shredded toilet tissue for bedding, by far the safest thing & hams love it.
I use some hay as an extra bit of enrichment in the cage but as velma says you do have to carefully check for sharp bits first & remove those also it needs to be put in the freezer for at least 48hrs, I do it for a week, to kill of any mites, bugs or eggs that might be in there.

You may have to try different types of chew until you find out which will be chewed.

Have you tried whimzee for him to chew? Most hamsters love them.

Gus is SO cute, and I love his name. Is it from Cinderella? Gus is my favorite mouse friend of Cinderella. I love his coloring, too. I'm quite fond of black hammies.

I agree with AprilPearl, most hammies absolutely adore whimzees for chewing and playing around with like a toy. They are also quite hard and hammies seem to approve of the flavors so they are perfect for keeping their teeth in good condition.

Congrats on giving Gus his forever, loving home with you. I look forward to hearing more about him and seeing more pics whenever he is settled in more.
