I just landed a work at home job, so my hamster and I will be free to move anywhere in the US. I can spend about $1400/month in rent. Which city would you recommend us moving to (amenities, etc)?

I think that hamsters are pretty much well-accepted in most large US cities these days.

So with that in mind, I'd say that Corpus Christi, Texas or Dubque, Iowa are great for the hamster set. I don't know why, but they've just always struck me as very hamster-friendly.

All the same, I'm curious to see if this thread turns into another East Coast vs. West Coast, NYC vs. SF/LA argument...

Kansas City seems pretty ideal for hamsters. Lots of wheat and corn are grown nearby.

Houston TX - they have a network of downtown tunnels that are air conditioned so people don't have to go outside during the 4-month summer. Your hamster will be comfortable there, but I'm sure the suits and stiletto heels set will be taken aback. In fact, with your budget, you could get your hamster his/her own apartment.

Actually, with his budget, he could probably afford the mortgage on a house. Then he could buy one of those above-ground pools from KMart and one of those little balls that hamsters can walk around in. Then he can put a slide on the pool and roll the hamster down it, and charge the neighborhood kids 5 bucks to watch or 15 bucks to push. There's profit everywhere, if you just think hard enough.

New York City! The subway tubes spanning the city are basically one giant hamster habitat! I'm sure it would have great fun playing with our famously friendly subway rats! You could probably also find a decent sized hamster cage in the outer boroughs for under $1400 a month.

It really depends on the race of your hamster. Some cities have discrimination problems against hamsters of "other" races. With that being said, I think your budget will get you into a nice neighborhood that is fully equipped with new hamster wheels. I would suggest Nashville.
