This is the home page for the hamsters that have shared their lives with me over the last
These pages are dedicated to these hammies as well as those that live with my friends.
They are wonderful animals who provide me with a lot of joy.
I could not imagine not having at least one hammie in my life.

Adopting a hammie
If you are thinking about adopting (as I cannot call it buying) a hammie for the first time,
I have found three articles from the BBC web site that provide useful information.
The first is on adopting and homing a hammie, the second explains how to look after a hammie and the final part explains about their behaviour and also provides information on the different breeds.
My mum has written a book of childrens stories called "Meggie the Witch and Other
Stories". One of the stories features Marmite as a spy!
The four books about Frank, the hamster and his adventures are also children""s books and I have read them and think they are excellent.
