Doric Hamstery has been my prefix since 2013. I’ve been breeding as a member of the Southern Hamster Club and have been exhibiting since 2012.

From 2011 to 2015 I ran Scritches Rat and Rodent Rescue with a team of trustees and so I consider myself firmly in the middle ground between rescue and breeding. I hope to share my experiences to educate those who may think ‘all breeders are bad’ or not understand why I do what I do.


Roborovski hamsters have been a part of my life since I saw my first hamster in 2011. Since then I’ve gone on to own, breed and exhibit these wonderful creatures and been fascinated by their different varieties.

For a few years I also bred, exhibited both Syrian and Chinese hamsters and I still judge Syrian hamsters which are the more commonly available pet. I have experience breeding and showing fancy mice and, briefly, gerbils.

My hamsters are first and foremost my pets. They share my house with my two dogs, pet rats and pet humans!
