Hamster or a Mouse??

I really wanted to get a small rodent, and I just can't decide between a hamster and a mouse! I have done a TON of research, so I can take care of either one, but I can't decide between the two. Help!!

I vote mouse :). I know I am going to get bashed by all the hamster lovers for saying this...but I think mice have more personality and are more affectionate.

5G - 1 betta: orange dalmatian VT male "Ty"
29G - 1 orange fantail goldfish "Goldeen"

I think hammie. I had one before, he was named Stuffy. lol (I was younger) He kept climbing the walls of the cage and he was too cute. :3 He also went to my hand the cuddle and be pet. To bad he died...

Over hundreds of bettas die in their small, dirty cups each day. Only you can help them live. Research and then save them, today!

I've had hamsters before, and they bit me.... But they were really sweet.... Mine died to, but they lived 3 years! If only I could get both!

I kinda want the pet that will NOT bite me and will let me handle them... I was considering a rat, but all of those medical bills....

What breed were they? Mine was a Syrian. They're the deeper domesticated ones. It's up to you.

I had two dwarf hamsters. Tiger and Hammy. I've never had a Syrian before... I did get a hamster, I would probably get a Syrian. Are they easy to tame?

Those take a little longer to tame.. Once my ham got used to my arm, he was fine with it. Remember that everything living is different.

I was a little kid, so I didn't have the best taming skills... The only problem with Syrians is the amount of space needed for them. But they are lovely little guys :)
