I would like a hamster. I'm thinking of getting one for my 30th birthday. It's about time I had some level of responsibility in my life. I will call it Mina (it will be a girl hamster) and I will get one of those balls to put it in so it can spin round the floors for exercise without getting lost behind the skirting boards or eating the cables.
So, are hamsters nice and easy to care for then? jOhn, maybe you should set up some kind of hamster advice phone line and charge premium rates, and people can call for hamster care advice.
