At the ripe old ages of 9 and 6 my sister and I began keeping Syrian hamsters and making a custom seed mix to sell. We named our business Hubba-Hubba Hamsters as we had recently discovered the existence of the “Hubba-Hubba Heinie”, a foam tush-enhancing product we thought very was reminiscent of our hamsters’ round physiques and corgi-like behinds.
Fast forward 25 years . . .
My hubby and I unexpectedly found ourselves foster parents to children we had mentored. After recounting every story about the years of Hubba-Hubba Hamsters, we brought one home. We instantly felt like something about his setup wasn’t right. It turned out that everything we thought we knew about hamsters was wrong. This is where part two of the Hubba-Hubba Hamster journey began.
Today, we are a small hamstery giving adopters an ethical alternative to pet store hamsters which are sourced through rodent mills. We aim to give hamster parents the most accurate and up-to-date information to properly care for their furry friends. We breed healthy Syrian hamsters with excellent temperament and show-standard appearance.
Our hamsters have been regularly handled and go home litter box trained, with a pedigree certificate, life-long support and a gift bag of items we feel will help with the transition. As there are no other ethical hamster breeders in the Northwest, our foundation hamsters have been individually chosen from the best breeders around the world, then flown in to add to our bloodlines. We are incredibly grateful to be getting mentorship from Cheeks and Squeaks Hamsters and Strong Brew Hamstery.
