We have 2 hamsters right now. My kids have had hamsters and rats. I've loved them all but I prefer the hamsters. Everyone of the hammies we've had has loved to sleep in the cleavage of my bra. They are so sweet and funny. The only time I've been nibbled is if my hands smelled of food and then they never actually bit me just sort of tasted to see if I was food.

You must handle your hamsters quite often. Our hamsters have only tried to get away. The rat seems so much friendlier and has not bitten once.

:puck: Yes we handled them from the moment they came home. At first they were skittish but with time and patience now they crawl up our arms & on our heads & nestle into us when their tired. 1 is a fat little thing & the other is normal size. When I give them a snuggle they put their paws on my face, it's so cute. The rats we were cute too & I loved them but I like the small size of the hammies. When my son was younger he had 1 hamster we used to take in the car with us, but only in the spring & fall when it wasn't too hot or cold, & she used to sit up on the dashboard & look out. It was hilarious. As long as you take your time getting them used to you any of the rodent family is fine, it just comes down to preference.:grinning:

We had guinea pigs and they are pretty fun little guys. They do squeal a lot but I thought it was cute. Also ours were trained to a point. If you would yell their names they would run down our long hallway squealing the whole time towards you. We all loved them.
