These 30 Adorable Hamsters Will Make You Want One For Yourself

Hamsters are some of the cutest critters out there. In my opinion, there’s really nothing not to love about them. But let’s break it down logically: domestic rats are precious, but some people don’t like them because they’re too big, and their tails are creepy. So what about mice? They’re smaller, so that’s fixed, but they’ve still got the tails that weird a lot of people out. So, what’s left? The hamster! Bonus points for usually being pretty chubby and fluffy, too.

Still not convinced? Here are 30 of them that are determined to change your mind.

Are you on Team Hamster yet? After that hot dog eating GIF, I don’t know how you couldn’t be. But I have to remind you that just because they live in a cage with a bowl of food doesn’t mean that they can be neglected, should you decide you want one for your family. They’re a pet, just like any other! And they need exercise, attention, and love, too.
