Acquired: Pet store
Posted Jan 11, 2016
Owning a hamster is somewhat of a right of passage for children, they are the type of pets that teach children about responsibility, ownership, and sadly the tragic event of the death of a pet.
Looking after a hamster is extremely easy, and above all, not that much of a messy job, the set up is relatively cheap, as is the food, and its very easy to come by.
Great for first time pet owners as sadly their life span isn't too long, which also has its positive side as it doesn't come with a 10 years plus commitment.
They are a joy to watch, rolling around in a little hamster ball, or climbing the bars of their cages, they are generally so energetic and playful!
I would love to own a hamster again!
