Good

Fascinating, unlikey to bite, easy to care for

Very small and fast, hard to handle, can smell

While I think that family pets are an important part of life, I really wouldn’t be happy bringing a new cat or dog into my home while my baby is so young. So instead of a large animal we decided to share our home with a hamster. I’ve previously owned Syrian and Chinese hamsters, but for some...

Great pets

Somethimes fight and can be noisy

THE HAMSTER: The russian hamster is recognised by its short tail and furry feet. They grow up to 10 -12cm (one of the smaller breeds of hamster) and with the right care can live up to 3 and a half years. They make great family pets as they like being handled and are friendly little creatures...

Let's start off with the bad points!First of all if you don't clean their cages out once a week or fortnight they will start to stink your room out, that is a definite, what I normally do is put them in a plastic ball bought from pets at home and let them roam your house for a while, while you...

“The Russian Dwarf Hamster”

Need a lot of attention, can be a bit mischievous,...

Being a happy owner of a dwarf hamster myself, I think I should review them to let other people know. Firstly, I must say that they are very small. The dwarf in their name may give it away... They are adventurous hamsters that can take any colour of fur; from black to white. No matter what you do...

russian dwarf hamsters are very friendly and easy to house. they are very busy overnight and can be very noisy! they are really tiny, about the size of a golf ball, so really good for small children. They are inexpensive to purchase anda fabulous pet. Reccommended to all as they do not mind living on their own.
