basically the equivallant of a whorehouse with a few slight differences. this is a hamster breeding operation and is the most common way pet stores aquire their hamsters. many hamstery owners can have up to 100 hamsters at a time. it is questionable if these animals have a high quality of life. there is a movement in congress to pass the hamstery act, which will enable every hamster in a hamstery to one toilet paper tube per month.
