So, I've recently taken a liking to hamsters. I don't know what got into me, but it was as if overnight a spiritual hamster god came upon me and said, "You should take care of a hamster!"
Of course, I must obey!
The cool thing about hamsters is that they've been around since about 1797 as pets. Its believed that they were captured and a brother-sister pair bred. This created the modern Syrian hamster, or teddy bear hamster.
They're super cute, and make fantastic pets for kids, teens, or adults. This leaves the question though, how do you care for a hamster?
As someone who's had mice as a kid, I can promise rodents are pretty tough, especially for the lazy people out there.
Luckily, I'll be documenting my journey for you guys. So if you are interested in hamster care, keep checking for a new post! I'm super excited to share my experiences with the world! Let's see if the world is excited back...
So go out there, get yourself a hamster to care for, and give a little pet a fantastic home! I'll be updating when I get mine! :)
In the meantime, here's a fun infographic on the difference between hamsters and gerbils!
I find it awesome how similar, yet different these two rodents are. I definitely gave this comparison an in-depth look when deciding as to which of the two cute rodents I wanted to take care of. Knowing me, I'll end up getting a gerbil at some point too! :P
I wanna hear what all of you guys think, though! Let me know in the comments how you feel about small pets in general.
So, this is your official assignment: post a picture of your pet(s), and tell me their names and what they are! Can't wait to see :)
I am a traveler, lifestyle enthusiast, gym rat, and pet lover. That's all I'll be posting about!
