Default Hamster Board - South / Central London UK

Hi all,

I'm spending Christmas between my parents (Portsmouth) and Hamster Dad's parents (Bristol) this year, and as we don't have a car it's not really fair to take poor little Gordon and Derrick on a mass train journey around the UK.

So, I'm looking for a hamster-sitter for the 24th - 29th/30th to look after my two boys (roborovskis).

I've found a few places online but I wanted to see if anyone here would recommend somewhere in the central / south London area? We live in Bermondsey.

I'll be gutted to spend Christmas without my hambabies but it just wouldn't be fair on them!

Thanks,
Carla

As an update to this, the problem has been solved as we've convinced HamsterDad (Calum) that we should hire a car so Gordon & Derrick can spend Christmas with us

I was keeping an eye on this thread as we're only a few miles away from you, and it would be good to know of someone who can board a hamster when we go on holiday!

If you do find anyone in future, please do let us know

Perhaps you guys could help each other out in future, if you have space?

I'm afraid we're both visiting far flung family this Christmas, but if you needed help in future and we can find space for your cage (I won't lie, our flat is tiny!) and my partner is happy with the idea, then I'd be happy to do it

Edit: spoke to my partner. He's happy to do it in principle if you can transport them to us (we're an easy train journey away in SW London, but we don't drive)

Sorry I've only just seen your reply InkyPen! I'm more than happy to help in the future too. We're the same with a 1-bed flat (eurgh, why is everything smaller in London?!), but we can definitely find space
Where about are you? We're in Bermondsey.
I don't have a car but could hire a zip-car for an hour to be a hamster taxi!

I did come across this, but I've not spoken to anyone on it:

I've sent you a PM

I've seen that link too - but to be honest I'd prefer to leave her with someone who understands hamsters

I'm in zone 2 SW London, very near a mainline train station... if we're available then, I'd be happy to help, so long as you can get Heidi to/from us and we're around on those dates! Carla (above) did a fab job of looking after Inky last time we went on holiday, so there's no particular need for a reciprocal arrangement, but it would be nice to meet another hamster!

Hey - jumping on this too. If Inky and fam aren't around, I can help out. I'm a little further in Central/SE, but always happy to help a hamster out and have extra hamster cuddles!
