    Thats great! Wow, you had alot! These guys certainly have enough room for 5 more hammies... they have a 10 gallon aquarium attached with tunnels to a deluxe crittertrail! Spoiled things! What did you house your hamsters in?

    Hamsters can be bought at animal shelters? I never heard of that :) I knew bunnies, but hamsters, no. How long do they live?

    Can I see a picture of him? He sounds so cute!


    Yup, my local animal shelter gets hamsters in alot. Not to mention bunnies, ferrets, mice and rats. If only they rescued chickens... [​IMG]
    This breed lives to be 3 - 3 1/2, they are the smallest hamster in the world and yet they live the longest out of all the other breeds.

    Yep, you can find all sorts of animals in most animal shelters. My local humane society has hamsters, guinea pigs, rabbits, mice, rats, and occasionally ferrets and birds. I adopted my last hamster from the humane society. He escaped once and was gone for a day before we found him. The second time we never did find him, and that's when I decided that we have too many predators in this house for hamsters (my hamster as a child would occasionally escape from her cage and go raid the kitchen...did it once when a neighbor was watching her while we were gone on a 3 day weekend and the neighbor felt really awful). Unfortunately, hamsters don't live very long, only about 2 years.
