The other day my mother and I were spending what little time we have together before I leave for college, during that time we stopped at a local pet store to visit the puppies they had. Above the noise of all the animals we heard these two small Robo hamsters. I fell in love right then and talked my mom into letting me get them. This was not my smartest idea due to the fact I will be joining the service soon and will not be able to take care of them. Lucky me, my brother offered to take care of them for me when I am away. I think it will be really good for him to learn some responsibility and also learn the value of lives no matter how small the size.
They run around the house in their little plastic balls and my dog Sasha loves to watch them. She sits in front of their cage and guards them while we are away. In the short days that I have had them they have really been apart of my family. Hopefully, they will keep my mother's mind off my absence.

Good day friends,
I started breeding hamsters February last year 2012. We have a lot of pets. We have four dogs, 3 pairs of parakeet, 20 kinds of fresh water fish and now these adorable hamsters. We started with a pair then it grew to a hundred and still counting. By the way, me and my wife both decided to have them as pets. We picked siberian dwarf hamsters because they're too cute and they don't grow too much. 4 inches long - max for females and 5 for males. Our first pair were named Husky and Savvy. Husky was already a year old when I we got him. He was very gentle and laid back while Savvy was the energetic gal. They gave us 4 pups and were named Cheena, Black eye, Sam and Sab. Cheena and Sam were the female hamsters. Then the family just kept growing and growing. They breed twice a month averaging from 4 to 9 pups. We couldn't keep up with their daily needs. I have an average job and my wife just stays at home. Our son is not really into hamsters, he likes our dogs.
Since our family was getting bigger and bigger, we couldn't afford buying their feeds regularly. I had to give them supplemements like bread and veggies. But giving them veggies regularly makes them sick. So just give them twice a week. Bread is ok, specially for pregnant hamsters. Their diet consists of crushed corn mill, peanuts, sunflower seeds and other stuff that pigeons and chicken have. Don't worry, they are perfectly fine based on our experience. I wouldn't have a hundred of them if not ok? Going back to the story, we had to decide about our hamsters. So what we did was gave some away to our close friends and relatives. But they just kept breeding and breeding. It was ok but I just couldn't afford their basic needs anymore. It was a decision me and my wife had to make. It is either we quit on them or make some sacrifices. Good thing it never came down to that, one day I've met this guy who owns a petshop and he saw me holding my favorite hamster "Vegeta". He asked me if I breed hamsters and I said I did so he asked me if I could supply his petshop a number of hamsters every now and then. Since then, we became partners. I supply him an average of 30 - 50 hamsters a month. Customers just love my hamster he said. Our hamsters are really cute and fat. maybe because of their diet. When you let them roam around, you couldn't even see their legs because that's how fat they are.
Because of this tie-up, I can now give our hamsters the diet and care they need because their brothers and sisters already paid for it :D. We keep our best hamsters and whenever we get a new breed with a different color, she or he is a keeper. Two months ago, our very first pair just passed away. I just found out from the petshop that I had bought them that they were older than I think. Unfortunately, nobody wanted them but me and my wife think that they were just adorable. Thanks for almost a year of hapiness and joy Husky and Savvy. Your grandhamsters will be taken care of.
I hope you like my simple story....

When my old Hamster,Tilly died (she was a syrian) i was desperate, in a few months time, for a new hamster.I was looking to get my first ever Roborovski hamster.We went to pets at home with my hard earned money (i was only 13) and went to go pick one.They were all sleeping, exept for one or two.one was on top of the water bottle.I was like 'how did he get up there?' In the end i bought him.In his whole lifetime, i have had to buy him 4 cages,as he'd chew the plastic to escape,or squeeze through bars (i wouldnt reccomend cages with bars)or somehow, figure out how to open his cage! That was then, when he died, i started my own hobby of keeping Roborovski hamsters!

when i got wiskers i went to petsmart i picked him because he looked best for me.:)After i came home we made the cage( we did not have the cage yet). then we put wiskers in and he started playing on his wheel i named him wiskers because off his wiskers they are so long i said i know what to name him i will name him wiskers. wiskers bites me a few times a week but i still love him. when you get your pet hamster make sure it stays close to you in the day next to the kichen and at night in someones bedroom.if you dont do that your hamster will go crazy try not waking your hamster during the day 1st it will bite you 2nd it will not live long.hamsters are easy to care for and cheap to care for and they will make a good pet.when you on vacaitin they can stay in the house byethemself for about 4 days try not any longer.:D

The day that I was getting my hamster was Sunday, I straighly ran at the "Roborovski" hamsters. There were 3 of them in total, all sleeping. When I was getting a hamster, the store had to open the cage. The man opend the cage and all the hamsters have gone mad, they ran around the cage and hid under the wheel. But only one hamsters did not, it sat there waiting (Sounds werid- Normally hamsters would run away) The one little hamster did not run back, he ran forwards to me!!
The hamster almost got out of the cage. I already knew what hamster to pick, that hamster who was brave to go up to me.
I picked him, as it was so cutie how Ginger (that hamster) chose me!I knew he would be a great hamster, so i got him!
It's funny- I mean normally you pick hamsters, but nope.. that hamster chose me!

Hello. I went to America when I was 4 and came back to Korea last year(January, 2012). In America I had no friends, and my roborovski hamster named Buttercup helped me get used to America. I soon got very used to all of the American people and soon I turned bilingual. Then we lived 4 years and left with all of our stuff... except for Buttercup. I had to give away Buttercup to a friend I know. She was the only person I could trust on, so I gave him away. She still gives me emails of how Buttercup is doing... but I can't erase the thoughts about him. He was truly my friend, not a hamster.

I have three hamsters - two are Robos the other a Syrian.
Chestnut and Peanut are my little Robos. I didnt know much about hammies when we got them - they were a complete suprise! When we first got a hamster ball, we were cleaning their cage. We were in my room and I glanced across the room where peanut was sitting in her ball, with the top off!!! I shouted "Peanut's opened the lid!!!" thankfull, she didn't attempt an escape.
This happened again with Peanut's sister, Chestnut, and she took her chance (unlike her quiet sis). I was watching them while they were running around. Chestnut stopped and started chewing something. I thought it probalbly was some food she had in her pouch. But then, the lid popped off! At that time I was taming them and Chestnut was beginning to take food from my hand. Peanut has always been more shy and she still is... they're both tame now though.
Chestnut took her chance and raced out. I jumped up and tried to catch her. 1st time failure. She jumped straight out my hand into the air and landed on the floor. 2nd time, I caught her popped her back in and repeatedly checked she was secure.
While Chestnut was getting used to being handled, I was holding her when something amazing and scary happened. At that time they used to run back and forwards in thier cage before i got them a new wheel because their old one didnt work. While holding her, she jumped out my hand and zoomed round the room in zigzags. I though I had lost her!! Then she when into a corner and started doing her nightly thing - running from side to side! It was amazing she started doing that - I couldn't believe my eyes!
The last thing is when my heart skipped a beat. I was holding Peanut and I picked her up by the scruff to check everything was ok. Then I thought it was the end for my adorable little hammie... I thought she had a tumour!!!! Panic struck me. I took a closer look and it was just poo atuck to her fur!!!! I took the biggest sigh of relief I ever have!
I love my hammies so much, they are the cutest things and we have had good times together and will continue to
We will have many more funny adventures!

I was walking home from the park and I saw something moving by the trashcan. OMG its a little hamster!
His fur was all fluffed up and he was so bitterly cold looking.
It was christmas around the time so id thought id rescue him!
I picked him up and neatly placed him in my coat.
I brought him to the vet the next day. The vetranarian said he wouldnt make it.
Two months later he was still living and his health took a dramatic increase! He was happy-go-lucky now.
Today he is 3 years old! The hamster that was cold, frozen,near death and hurt is now just a thing of the past!
He is healthy, happy, and friendly! He was my RESCUE HAMSTER!
