I love all rodents...but I'm going to say hamsters<3

I've always had them growing up. I just think they are cute little furballs.

i would def ! say rats,
ive had mice, rats, and hamsters and rats are def the best
the mice and hamsters dont know how to respond to their owners
but rats love people and the attention they get from people.

i think rats are lovely but my boyfriend decided he wanted 2 hamsters and soon he wants us to get a degu! I do hear that rats have more of an attachment to their owners do any other rodents have this attachment?

I guess it depends on the animal.
I have had mice,a gerbil,guinea pigs and I currently have a hammie,as well as rats...but it seems my rats are the only ones that have really bonded with me and they always get so excited to see me.


My hammie now,as much as I love him...don't care too much for me.He loves his food and wheel/ball...don't seem to care about me.

Hehe! I have three hammies. Two of them can take me or leave me, but my Patches---she's a lover!! She runs to greet me at the slightest sound of my voice! I can't walk past her cage without having to pick her up and schuggle her!!!

I picked mice cause they are easy to take care of and are one of the sweetest rodents I have ever owned.

Gonna have to be Pinny-gigs from me
I've owned 8 of them amongst most other rodents, and worked closely with even more rodents but i always have a soft spot for guineas, but unless you've owned one you won't know, i'd never considered them when i got my first one, and after that i had 4 at a time and never considered anything but!
