I had a hamster and it lived for 1 year and 5 months. Unfortunately my friends were unlucky and theirs only lived for 10 months. It says in all guide books that they need to be handled every day, but I got mine out 3 times a week and it was very tame. It only ever bit me once when I first had it. I'd have to say to anyone who gets one that they need cleaning out weekly and it's a lot getting them out regularly. I must admit there was one stage in which I didn't get my hamster out for 2 weeks and was considering taking it back to the pet shop. If you do get one then you need to be up to looking after it for at least 2 and a half years. On average I'd say they live about 1 year, but my best mate's hamster did last for 3 and a half years. On cages, I would get Rotastack even though they're expensive. You have to pull it apart and assemble it, but they last ages. You do need to make sure you have at least 1 room with bars. If you get a smaller cage, you probably will have to get your hamster out more.
