Q: Are hamster balls cruel?
What do people think of the balls that you can buy for the hamster to run around the room in? Are they fun for the hamster or are they just moving along as they're trying to get out? Many thanks for your views.

I have a 1 year old black bear hamster and recently bought a hamster ball for her for her birthday. She seems to have a blast in it. We watch her go around the room and stop to sniff and roll some more. To me it's an extension of her running on her wheel but this actually goes somewhere. We only leave her in it for about 10 minutes, always supervised and then put her back in her cage and clean it out. Hope that helps a little : )
