Many people see hamsters as throwaway pocket pets when in reality, they’re intelligent and interesting creatures that deserve more love and affection than they often receive.
Hamsters are popular pets with children, who become bored of their pets when the novelty wears off.
We’re also against pet stores that sell small, dangerous enclosures and provide bad advice that puts hamsters at risk. We’re here to offer expert advice backed by science to help you on your journey.

About Julie Hamilton (Owner)
“Hi, I’m Julie Hamilton. I love everything about hamsters – from their cute little ears to their chubby cheeks (especially when they’re filled with food!).
I’ve always had pet hamsters ever since I was a little girl. But back then, hamster care advice was seriously lacking, so my hammies lived in small cages with little enrichment.
Thankfully, hamster care’ has advanced significantly since then, but I’m concerned about the lack of proper advice on the internet and the poor care tips provided by some pet store employees.
The result is that far too many hamsters are still living in unsuitable cages with small wheels and a lack of things to keep them busy.
I’m on a mission to educate current and wannabe owners on how to care for their hamsters.
Hamsters require lots of love and attention – they’re not a pet for the faint-hearted. They’re not just for children, either – they provide endless hours of fun and entertainment.
As long as you can offer lots of time for your hammy, you’ll love hamsters just as much as I do.”
