that really sounds wrong. Hamsters have fur for a reason. Dogs get dressed up coz celebs are trying to make them look good (themselfs and the dog )

1) The hamster doesn't like it. It's itchy, uncomfortable, unatural, and the hamster probably feels trapped.

2) It's not cute. It's stupid. Putting clothes on a hamster is silly. If you're that desperate, get a doll.

3) What is the point? Am I missing something?

4) Why waste money on something such as hamster clothes when- well, read above. I'd rather put it towards a chew or a house or something the hamster might actually enjoy.

Yes, I agree with HB...it is a little cruel. I think it'd be wrong to put clothes on a hamster...their little bodies can't handle much restraint...& if the clothes are tight; that's another problem =// I wouldn't risk it.

as for hamster closthes for a pic .. oooh ok maybe i can go for it still veri veri doubtful as for dogs its not mean to dress them I have a chihuahua when i have to go out when oits cold ( below 40*f) or he needs to pottyin snow i could thro him out bare and freezing or put on wwarm coats to keep him dry and warm. I dont dress for fashion tho i do enjoy cute clothes i dress him and our others for warmth and dryness. dogs can get sick from wet cold feet as easily as humans.

example:

currently it 20*f and sleetign outside when i take my short haired itty bitty chihuahua outside he freezes so i put on a thermal and a lil' rain coat to make the process easier. then remove once in his bed. Thats cruel?

Aww sorry to say, but I feel kind of sorry for the hamster.. I don't know, but I would just let the animal stay as he is. How would you feel to be dressed up, fitted in clothes, no choice, not being able to speak if you don't like it. Sorry, but no, sad.
Besides if you want to dress something up, don't pick on a small defenseless animal. Get a doll, toy or something that isn't alive and breathing.
Besides you should watch out for the heat. A hamster is hairy, unlike humans who can wear a sweater or such in warm situations (although it isn't all to healthy for us too). We need the extra warmth from clothes, hamsters got a natural coating, their hairs.

Same for dogs and other animals that get dressed up by their owners.

Megan's got a point, though - chihuahuas barely have hair. :P

That sounds so cruel. Hamsters have fur for a reason so why bother making them suffer in tight clothing?

I think it's really cruel to put hamsters in clothing as SimplyHamm said they have fur!! Why put them in tight itchy clothing that they will hate. A hamster is not a doll that you can dress up if you want to dress things up use a barbie!!!
