Thanks. Hamsters are the skinny ones?

My sister has mice in a complicated tube house thingie. The mouse house takes over about a quarter of her dining room. Theyre little black mice. Very cute.

true story, i'm not saying it to be cruel. i only heard the story recently from my mother herself.
Rodents will also end up with your cold if your are ill. No one handles the rat if they are ill. They can develop pneumonia easily if they catch your cold.

a hamster is small, like the size of a mouse, but a little more chubby and they generally have shortish hair, longer than a mouse but still short. A guinea pig is bigger, think the size of a small bunny with longer hair.

I thought livluv had guinnea pigs, not hamsters.

My neighbor has rats. She absolutely loves them. I was totally freaked out about them until she went on vacation for a couple weeks and I had to give them meds and feed them n stuff. They're not all that bad
