Have you ever tried taking care of hamsters?

Hamsters are cute animals that are fun to take care. I couldn't forget the first time we brought a couple of hamsters home and how excited my nephews were. They are very fun and they could make you really laugh because of the way they behave. We did enjoy having the hamsters for months and the couple had 4 babies. But something went very wrong. The baby hamsters just died one by one and we didn't know the cause. After that incident I lost interest because I dreaded that it will happen again. Imagine losing the pets that you have grown very fond of.

I used to be scared of hamsters because my brother had one that liked to bite. But I was in a pet store looking at the teddy bear hamsters and i told the store clerk I thought they were cute but was scared of them. So, she preceded to grab one and put it in my hands. he wriggled around but he never bit me. he was so cute i fell in love with him and i ended up buying two a male and a female. I named tehm bonnie and clyde. We ended up not keeping bonnie because she was meaner than clyde. But i loved my little clyde. I could bring him out and play with him for a long time and he seemed to enjoy it. i bought him a ball that he could run around in and he loved that ball. My children could do about anything to him and he never once even nipped them. This was many years ago and clyde is long gone but I will always have my great memories of my little friend and i know now that not all hamsters bite. You just have to find the right one.

I am not into taking care of pets of any kind. I just like them seeing around. But not really feeding and caring for them. I am not just born to do that.
