Top Ten Cutest Rodents

The Top Ten
1 Hamster Hamsters are rodents belonging to the subfamily Cricetinae. The subfamily contains about 25 species, classified in six or seven genera.

They are the cutest! They are so small and fluffy and are little balls of poofines! They are cuter than rats, mice, squirrels, and guinea pigs!

Hamsters are ADORABLE. I have a hamster named Otto and he's so small and fuzzy!

I like the panda bear hamster and the syrian and black bear hamsters

Hamsters are awesome!

2 Squirrel Squirrels are members of the family Sciuridae, a family that includes small or medium-size rodents. The squirrel family includes tree squirrels, ground squirrels, chipmunks, marmots, flying squirrels, and prairie dogs amongst other rodents.

Give me my nuts!

3 Gerbil A gerbil is a small mammal of the order Rodentia. Once known simply as "desert rats", the gerbil subfamily includes about 110 species of African, Indian, and Asian rodents, including sand rats and jirds, all of which are adapted to arid habitats.

Gerbils are adorable, I have 4 girls, biscuit, fudge, peanut and coconut. They love to chase each other through the tunnels they made and play fight, when they see me they stop what their up to and come sit on the top floor near the door all lined up waiting for treats, when they get a treat each all of them run off to separate corners or hiding places to nibble in peace, once the treats are gone they all come back to the door waiting to come out, It's so cute to have 4 little gerbils each with their own different personalities showing me love in their sweet little way.

I am a proud and educated owner of two beautiful gerbils. I have owned 5 in total. Their names are Regina, Snow, Coffee, Chocolate, and Toffee. Toffee is a rare intelligent one because he communicates to me on a whole different level. For example when he's hungry, he waits for me look at him, looks at the food bowl and looks back at me (<3). Chocolate and I had the closest bond. He was an attention seeker, got jealous when I paid attention to his brother instead of him (so adorable and precious). Blocked my gaze from Coffee. Also, Chocolate loved looking at me, he would do it for hours if he wanted to. He warmed up to me really fast. Coffee is the real couch pototo because he sleeps a lot. He looks like a piece of chubby chicken nuggets. Regina was the friendly, wassup character. She wouldn't stop climbing up my arm and she is arguably the most beautiful baby I ever owned. Lastly, Snow was lazy and skittish, even the most quiet sound -even mouse clicks- would end up in Snow running ...more

My gerbils are the sweetest, most loving little guys ever. Their names are Figit and Gizmo. Gizmo is a Mongolian and Figit is a Egyptian. They love each other even though they are adopted brothers. Figit, the older one is still learning to be friends. It takes a good while. I love my gerbils and you should too.

First they are super friendly and they love attention they want love! Gerbils can also get so used to other people

4 Guinea Pig The guinea pig, also called the cavy or domestic guinea pig, is a species of rodent belonging to the family Caviidae and the genus Cavia.

Guinea pigs live for a long time, clean, don't smell like poo, poo does not smell like poo, and overall just better than hamsters, gerbals, dogs, cats like every animal and they are very smart. Also you can bring them places because they are big and they wont escape. Like the guinea pig pignic. Also don't come saying to me that other animals are better, like its common sense that guinea pigs are amazing.

Two or three guineas are much cuter than an only lonely. They like to chase and squeak at each other, and make little tunnels through their hay. Other rodents like beavers might be objectively cuter, but guineas are the cutest rodent you can keep in your shack.

Underrated along with the gerbil. Guinea pigs are amazing pets they are comfort for when you are down and make the cutest squeaks and even purr! needs to be higher.

Guinea pigs are adorabel and how ever says guinea pigs are ugly they are ugly idiots. guinea pigs should be the cutest animals on earth. guinea pigs rule.

5 Chinchilla Chinchillas are two species of crepuscular rodents, slightly larger and more robust than ground squirrels. They are native to the Andes mountains in South America and live in colonies called "herds" at high elevations up to 4,270 m.

Every comment this list gets = one hug for a chinchilla.

10 Rats Rats are various medium-sized, long-tailed rodents of the superfamily Muroidea. "True rats" are members of the genus Rattus, the most important of which to humans are the black rat, Rattus rattus, and the brown rat, Rattus norvegicus.

RATS ARE THE FRIENDLIEST LITTLE THINGS IN THE UNIVERSE! I have two rats, one loves to climb on me and the other loves to lick my fingers :)

Rats are super cool and chilled out, they make great little companions.
