They are. One of our dogs, as you can see, is a bit obsessed with them.

I had a hamster named Ponyboy....heh yep I was and Outsiders fan....however my dad called him Herman...don't ask lol

he was a great little fella, he loved to be held and talked to. The only bad thing about hamsters is that they dont live long enough

yeah, and when they go they go...no prior warning like "i'm feeling a bit off today".

when i left to go to work one morning my Moley was running away happly on his wheel.

when i returned at night he was lying stiff underneath his wheel.

poor thing, it would be funny if it wasn't tragic.

you have to watch though, they do go into hibernation if it's too cold. When my brother and sister were younger their hamster went into hibernation....my mother, a nurse of all people, didn't want my brother and sister to get upset so she put the said hamster under a warm grill and ended up toasting the poor mite.

true story, i'm not saying it to be cruel. i only heard the story recently from my mother herself.

Just try not to buy two male hamsters... they would kill each other

My friend Lu bought two male hamsters (Lucciano and Pepe) and she put them in the same cage... two weeks later she found that Lutiano had Pepe's legs between his teeth....

Ewen are you saying youre Scottish, spell your name the Scottish way, wear a kilt AND are a qualified engineer? Some people really are a walking parody of themselves.

oh my gosh that's horrible!! Well I'm fairly certain Ponyboy just died. When I bought him the pet store told me that he was getting old and they actually sold him really cheaply. It was very warm the day he died, it was summer in fact.

Sorry. And some people make bad jokes ie me.

The standard joke in Australia is that all Scots are engineers.

See the funny I made?

lol. No I believe your Scottish alright. No doubt about it

As for hamsters, I have never seen one. I dont know if theyre even permitted here. The entire state that I live in is flora and fauna protected. Nothing new comes in.

PS What is the difference between a hamster and a guinea pig?
