I was thinking Indianapolis for the same reason.

The rats in NY are 10 times bigger than the average hamster.

I would say aim for somewhere in Kansas. I hear they're very tolerant of small rodents there. For $1,400 a month, you should be able to get a decent place too and your furry friend could have his own room. Sunflowers also grow in Kansas...a ready supply of food.

I occasionally eat at a Peruvian restaurant in my area and have tried both the cuy asado and cuy al horno. Delicious, tastes kind of like dark turkey meat. Just as good as the roast guinea pig they serve in the local markets in Peru. I suggest keeping your furry little critter away from towns that have Peruvian restaurants!

Looks like you might want to avoid moving with your hamster to East Newark, New Jersey(over 10 percent Peruvian) or other places that have a high percentage of Peruvians...

Is your hamster single? He or she may be interested in dating when you arrive in your new town. Please don't forget even hamsters need hugs.

I think it comes down to which city has the fewest snakes.

I think an overseas relocation to Australia is out of the question, then.

That's guinea pig though that's being eaten in Peruvian cuisine, not hamster, right?

They're not the same thing, though they both are rodents. I don't know if hamster is also eaten.
