    Someone is once again trying to sell a hamster on Ebay, although I do want to report them to Ebay I am worried that the poor little thing will be disposed of in order to sell the cage. Is there anyone in Coventry who is willing to contact the seller and advise them that selling hamsters on Ebay is not allowed and perhaps offer this poor little blind hamster a home. I know I am asking a lot but if I lived nearer I would do it myself.

    I live so close to Coventry.
    I really wish I could help, but my we've got no room for another hamster :(
    Really hope someone else is able to help.

    I've just sent a message explaining that it is against Ebay rules and if they still have her after the auction ends that I am a member of several hamster/pet forums and I will try to help them find a home for her. I hope they will take me up on it, I can't guarantee that I can find her a home but at least she might have a hope.

    They might take less for the cage if they don't sell it, I can't belive anyone would just sell an animal they have cared for to the highest bidder, and the poor little thing is blind as well:(.

    Hopefully now that the auction has been cancelled they can find a better way to rehome the hamster.
