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.

I have a hamster and he is ADORABLE!

Love hamster!

Guinea pigs aren't stupid or disgusting. Shut up, let people get whatever rodent they want. They don't bite a lot. You're probably doing something wrong, so if you hate guinea pigs so much, why don't you give them away to a more responsible owner?

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!

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.

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 - TheShadd

Yay GERBILS are cute!

GERBILS ARE ADORABLE! So cute and tiny! Oh, and SUPER chubby!

5 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.

The cutest balls of fluff in the world

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. - Mesmerize

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.

They are adorable and cute

6 Mouse A mouse is a small rodent characteristically having a pointed snout, small rounded ears, a body-length scaly tail and a high breeding rate. The best known mouse species is the common house mouse. It is also a popular pet.

9 Coypu

They stinky boys but I love it so much they love climbing into my clothing and giving it a little tug if you know what I mean. Always a quality fleshlight if you get them stuffed after they pass.
