I have a mum, dad ( they we’re supposed to be 2 females when I bought them ) and they have 2 babies approximately 5/6 weeks old eating & drinking on their own ( not sure on sex of them yet )
I’m hoping to sell/home all 4 together. They will come with a bag of food and half of a very large bag of hay/bedding. They won’t come with the cage so you will need your own.
They have been handled a little bit so still a bit shy of humans. If all 4 bought together they will be £12 each the hay & food are free with them. Please email if you would like more info. Thanks
Safety Notice: NEVER send a payment or deposit online before viewing the Pet to confirm the advert is genuine. Read our Covid-19 safe buying guide.
Be extra cautious with online transactions!
We encourage you to read these guidelines before buying or adopting a rodent.
Carry out the research so you have all the necessary knowledge of the pet you are getting. Since owning a pet is a big commitment, you should research about the breed fully to make sure it fits your current lifestyle and budget.
Take time to visit the advertiser's home to confirm if they are genuine. Do not settle for online communications and photos. UK Pets does not verify the authenticity of all advertisers. The advertiser should allow you to personally see the rodents with their mother. If they keep on giving you excuses why you could not visit their home or the address stated in the advert is not the accurate and permanent location of the pet, consider this a red flag.
Never pay anything online through money transfer companies especially if you have not personally visited the advertiser and seen the pet, this includes deposit and delivery cost for the pet. There is also no means to recover your money if issues arise. Before closing a deal.
The advertiser should only release the rodents from their mothers when they are:
They should be responsible enough to know that separating the rodent from the mother earlier results in medical and behavioural issues.
Just like any other rodents, hamsters tend to have a shorter lifespan. This is because they mature faster than most animals. In fact, some believed that a two-year-old hamster is as old as a seventy-year-old human.
Rodents as pets are widely recognised as ‘pocket pets’ due to their significantly small size. At first glance, the diminutive size of rodents can be misperceived as low maintenance furry companions. However, all kinds have their own similarities and differences both in character and needs.
Hamsters are naturally full of energy. However, this does not give us a clear picture of their emotions. Is your hamster running its wheels out of boredom or joy? When it bites your finger whilst handling, is it mad or not? Before we get to know if hamsters miss their owners, do they have emotions, in the first place?
