I had a couple hamsters when I was younger. A friend gave them to me when theirs had babies. They were really cute and fun to watch, but not handle. They always used the bathroom in my hands. Rats don't do this by the way. They pooped in their little exercise ball and it had to be cleaned after each use. It was not for me. I love all little animals, but I gave my hamsters to my cousin and he had them and loved them for a long time. I was not too impressed with them, but I was only 10. I think if you get a cute cage for them and just want to watch them in their habitat, it is a good pet.
