Im not going to feel guilty about just 1 time getting from a ethical breeder
I'm not trying to make you feel guilty. I have myself bought hamsters from the petshop, from a breeder and the majority have been rescued.
I suppose after rescuing, rehoming (usually to myself) and volunteering for rescues, i've become more aware of the number of hamsters in need of a good home and will do anything i can to encourage people to adopt.
Buying from a petshop or a breeder indirectly supports more breeding and sometimes i get a bit carried away with my mission to help unwanted hamsters to a loving home.
I do apologise for that.
