All About Hamsters (VIDEO)

Caring for a furry little hamster might look like an easy task, but there’s quite a bit you need to know before taking one home as a pet. Hamsters are a low cost pet compared to cats and dogs, but being so delicate, the responsiblity of taking care of one of these cute creatures isn’t to be taken lightly.

Take a look at this informative tutorial by the Humane Society of the United States on hamster care!

Caring for an animal is never an easy task as they all come with care needs, expenses, responsibilities and tasks. Caring for a living creature requires a lot from someone. But what they give to us in return, no bill and cleaning task can equal.

Hamsters should NOT be kept as pets, because they do need their nature habitat and FREEDOM!!! just like every living beeing. Even if they have a short life, it still is 1-4 years. WHY should we have the right to lock these curious and energetic animals in a small plastic box with only artificial materials aroud. And the wheel they "like" to run in endlessly is cheeting them. Ofcourse they think they will come somewhere while running in it, and ofcourse they hope to find their way out through it. PLEASE, try to understand correctly, what loving really means. Is it love towards yourself or towards the other.
