Thinking your pet as a family, a soul. They only have 2-4 years to live, unlike us human. I know that most of the people buying hamster for their kids, kids dont know anything about hamster natural habitat, burrowing and they need space. As an adult or parent, show to your kids by giving them support and education hamster is also like human need space. Treat your hamster like your own, it is not because they are small they could live in a small space too.
