Well, my DGDs hamster died night before last. We've had it about a year and a half. I understand they live up to 2 years. We've been trying to decide on another pet. I understand that mice make better pets because they aren't inbred. So, we are seriously thinking about going that direction. DGD wanted a guinea pig, but I understand they are very nasty and pee and poop a lot, which means cleaning their cage often. She loves chinchillas, but they cannot get wet because they have something like 60 hairs per hair follicle. They take dust baths.
