Do you have a hamster? If you were to make a list of all the good and bad things about having one, what would be on it? Before you answer that, take a look at this video created by Thebunnyshed1. Her pet hamster, Theodore, is a cute, furry critter who is a lot of fun to watch. This, by the way, is one of her pros. Other pros include a hamster’s lack of bad odor and how suitable they are as pets for mature children and adults. Some of the cons she lists are the expense and their short life spans. As a hamster owner, her pros and cons are specific to her experiences. Would you put the same things on your list? Let us know in the comments below.
