The most common animals from rodents, which you can keep at home, is the hamster. To observe the life of a hamster is a real pleasure for children and adults. This ball of fur deftly climbs the bars of the cage, spinning the wheel, stuffing a Turkey full of food, washes.
However, keep in mind that an active lifestyle leads hamster mainly evening and night. And the smell of the animal that with regular cleaning the cell will be almost imperceptible. Unfortunately, the lifespan of a hamster — not more than three years, and it will be difficult to survive the loss. Another problem will affect those who started a heterosexual couple. These exemplary family men well breed in captivity, bringing to eight calves a few times a year.
Another animal, which is not difficult to contain in the Guinea pig.
It is a peaceful creature with expressive eyes lives longer than a hamster, and is more sociable and docile nature. The owners of the pigs claim that intelligent Pets set them apart from the rest of the family, respond to his name and even welcome vzveshivat after separation.

Each of us wants to have a real friend. Such a small and defenceless, requiring warmth and care, but that he was looking smart eyes and understood everything. Of course, it comes to mind the dog. But, alas, not everyone has the opportunity to keep a dog in the apartment and to give it the right amount of time. Budgie or some other small bird is a simpler and cheaper option.

Guinea pigs ― great friends, not demanding a staggering cost too much time. Moreover, they really are smart and responsive, playful and funny. These cute animals are not averse to “talk” with the owner. They produce the characteristic mood sounds similar to the chirping of birds or the water boiling in the kettle. And how they love to bask in the hands of the master, burying his pink nose right in her hands. Live Guinea pigs from 7 to 15 years with proper nutrition and content in General.
Care and sumerianjoki pigs
Many don’t want or can’t devote much time to your pet and try to choose the offspring that will require minimum time expenditure on care and maintenance.
