Facts about Ms Webster

  • Species: Hamster
  • Color: Golden
  • Age: Young
  • Sex: Female
  • Hair: Short
Webster is just under a year old, Syrian (aka Golden or Teddy Bear) hamster rescued from a hoarding situation.
She, alongside many of her siblings, was surrendered into our care after her guardian became overwhelmed. Initially having two, who they were assured were the same sex, they quickly became surprised when the numbers started growing. Being miss-sexed by the pet store they got them from (an error made too often!), these hamsters started mating, producing litter, after litter. What the former guardian (or the store who sold them!) didn't know is that Syrians are a solitary breed. They must be housed individually to avoid serious injury or even death from fighting. Sadly, because all of these hamsters were being housed together, many suffered injuries, and it became clear that the situation has gotten out of hand.

When cared for properly, Syrian hamsters are docile, gentle, and playful, and can form a relationship of trust with their humans fairly quickly. They are meticulous groomers and like to maintain orderly surroundings. They are highly active when awake and interesting to watch as they are constantly engaged in a task.

Now that she feels safe, carried for and respected, Ms Webster is friendly, outgoing and loves attention. She loves tending to her cage, rearranging the toys and hideouts. She looks forward to interactions with Empty Cages volunteers staff, and is always ready for another treat or a play session.
Ms Webster would make a wonderful companion to any experienced or beginner hamster guardians interested in learning proper care.

About Empty Cages Collective

About Our Rescue Group...

Empty Cages Collective is a Brooklyn-based, all volunteer, animal rescue and advocacy organization. Our aim is to cultivate a culture where all animals are recognized as sentient beings worthy of respect and compassion.

Come Meet Our Pets...

We would love to introduce you to our cats and kittens! Information about our upcoming adoption events can be found on our web site. Or call us at 1-800-880-2684 or email us at to schedule an appointment.

Our Adoption Process...

Because we have limited resources we try to help the cats and kittens who are in the greatest need. All of our cats and kittens have been rescued as socialized strays or pulled from the kill list at NYC Animal Care & Control.

All of cats and kittens have been, or will be, spayed and neutered. As well, they have been vaccinated, treated for parasites, and blood tested.

Adoption of a cat or kitten from Empty Cages Collective requires an approved application and a donation of at least seventy-five dollars (one hundred dollars if the cat or kitten has been micro chipped).

Please call us at 1-800-880-2684 or email us at for an adoption application.
