Once you've got a hamster it's easy to see why they're such a popular pet! My partner and I both grew up with a hamster in the house when we were younger, but had forgotten just how affectionate and characterful they are.
Ziggy is now 18 months old; in that time she quickly adapted to living with us and is a very easy going, low-maintenance pet. The only real downside is the fact that hamsters are nocturnal, meaning we don't really get to see her before 8pm! There's something really cute about the way she sort of 'grunts' when she's busy exploring something new. If you're after a small pet for a flat or rented room, you can't really go wrong with a little hammie.
