If you are seriously thinking
about getting a hamster, do consider going to a rescue centre - there are so
many unwanted and unloved creatures in this world all just hoping to be
given a home and lot of TLC.
If you have any unwanted hamster cages that are in good
condition and could be re-used, these are often greatly appreciated by
hamster rescue centres who can then re-home hamsters in them, thereby saving
the new owner the expense of buying a cage. It's a good idea to phone
the centre beforehand to check that they want it as some cages/tanks on sale
are not particularly suitable.
