The Pet Hamster is a non-member land pet. It was first hinted at in the Jamaa Journal on August 9, 2011, and it was later released on August 17, 2011. It was originally only available to members but became available to all Jammers on June 6, 2013. They can be purchased directly from their adoption icon in Claws 'N Paws as well as through the Change Your Look Pets menu.


Hamsters are small, oval-shaped pets with rounded ears, relatively large eyes, and a medium-sized muzzle or nose. Their patterns include a broad patch of color covering the front half of the body (not including the muzzle); a band of coloration in the midsection; and two stripes on the back of the body. There are six eye-shape variations. The coat texture can also be altered to smooth; rough; long-rough; or tangled (sticking up in clumps).

Action Description
A few pieces of dried corn appear in front of the hamster. It sits up, leans forward, and grabs the items in its mouth, stuffing its cheeks. The hamster proceeds to chew three or four times before visibly swallowing, remaining in the upright position for a moment, and going back to normal.
It sits upright. It belly sticks out a bit and it back arches.
Uses a joystick to control a toy car that goes around it. A small, pattern-less hamster, colored the same as the hamster's primary color, is inside the car.
Shuffles in place, going back and forth rapidly in a way similar to how it "walks".
It has the default position. Except now it's eyes are closed and slightly curved.
It hops with the default position.


These accessories can be found at the Pet Stop. The rare accessories can only be found in the Pets Only Party and the Play-As-Your-Pet Party.

  • Hamsters constantly wiggle and twitch their noses, similar to many rodents in real life.
  • When the player is in water, the hamster will splash and look as if it was swimming with effort due to its small size.
  • Unlike real hamsters, these pets do not have a visible tail.
  • They were the first non-member pets to be released (the other non-member pets are the Joey, the Honeybee, the Seahorse, the Rooster, the Dodos and the Giraffe), though options such as accessorizing them or taking them to the Pet Wash are still only exclusive to members.
  • Non-members are able to attend the Pets Only Party and the Play-As-Your-Pet Party with their hamsters.
  • The hamster has two plushie counterparts-the Pet Hamster Plushie and Giant Pet Hamster Plushie.
