    Hamsters are really neat too! I had a girl (Sylvia) and a boy (Sylvester) when I was a little girl. They each had their own cages that I fixed up to look like little houses [​IMG]. And they would run on their wheels for what seemed like hours and hours. I truly loved them and they lived for quite a long time.

    I've had rats, mice and hamsters. I must say that out of those 3 the hamsters stunk the worst, but I also had about 20 at a time. The other thing I noticed was that they bite way more then the other rodents. That's just been my experience with them. They sure are cute and I'd have them again if only I had more time and more room.

    I used to love making my hamsters little cities. I would have tubes going all over my room from cage to cage, along the walls, across my bookcase, they were everywhere.

    I hate hamster's, won't touch most of them without gloves, they've mean little buggers. THough I have met a few ok ones. Hopefully you get a good one! But if you want something that's actually social, sweet, and wants to be with you and won't bite, get a rat. [​IMG]
