This was my boy Dobby before he sadly passed away just before Christmas. I also had another hamster called Caramel who, while we were on holiday, passed away while my nan and grandad were looking after her. They both lived until about 2 - 2 and a half years old. I don't have any pictures of Caramel available but she was literally the best little hamster. I'd call her every evening and she'd come out of her bed to go for a run in her hamster ball. I miss them both dearly.
I think rats and guinea pigs sound like lovely pets and I aim to get some when I am older. Re-homed if possible
I don't have any small pets anymore so I can't actually vote Have had loads in the past though.
I most recently had 2 rabbits (Bubble and Squeak) but lost them both around November last year. Squeak had to go to the vets for dental work and sadly didn't make it through the anaesthetic. About 2 weeks later Bubble got E. Cuniculi - she started with a head tilt and then started violently rolling, I syringe fed her over the weekend but she didn't improve at all so she had to be PTS
I had 2 gerbils too (Flash and Zippy), Zippy lived to about 3 and had to be PTS while I was on holiday as he developed a tumour on his scent gland. Flash got the same thing about a year later and made a recovery, he died age 5 which wasn't bad for a gerbil!
I also adopted 2 elderly Rex rats (Cheese and Cracker) when they were about 5 years old, I got them from where I worked at the time at our local petting farm. Due to their age they looked in a pretty bad state and could no longer be on display to the public so were left on a shelf - I took pity on them and took them home.
I have also had 2 other rabbits previously, at different times called Phoenix and Smudge. I have also owned a Russian hamster called Basil
I don't have any plans for any more small furries in the near future as I don't really have the time anymore! I do love them though
