Remember on the old sitcoms from the 1950ís and 1960ís when kids always had a pet hamster? While the image of the pet hamster as a sitcom standby has disappeared over the years (mainly because TV sitcomsí presentation of children has become more cynical), the venerable pet hamster remains a very popular fixture in pet shops across the United States.
The hamster, at home in his hamster cage, always brings a smile to a little kidís face.
In a way, the hamster hanging around his hamster cage destroys quite a number of stereotypes about rodents. That is, the general public considers rodents to be dirty, sneaky, mean spirited animals beneath the contempt of humans.
Now, has anyone looked at a hamster at home in its hamster cage and thought such negative thoughts? Of course not!
Hamsters are fun pets that can provide hours of enjoyment to kids who can stare through the hamster cage and see what the pesky little pet is up to. After all, who doesnít enjoy watching the hamster get hours of enjoyment exercising on the hamster wheel?
Who knows? Maybe watching the hamster at home in his hamster cage will provide some inspiration for his human hosts to get up and exercise as well!
Hamsters have been popular pets for decades and will continue to be popular pets for many more decades to come. It is doubtful the image of the hamster cage will ever disappear from the human landscape in real life like it did on the sitcoms.
This is a great thing as who would possibly want to live in a world where hamsters are nowhere to be found? Certainly not any children! Hamsters are great pets and should always be taken in by humans looking to have a fun pet around the house. Hamsters are a great joy and should always provide hours of fun.
