Hamsters are ideal apartment pets because they can easily live in a limited space. They are also quiet and clean since they don’t shed. This is an incredible pro for allergy sufferers! Taming hamsters is not a difficult job either, and anyone can do it without much intense training. Designing an area for the hamster to live in is also quite simple- all you need is a 2-cubic-feet cage equipped, which contains an exercise wheel, items to chew on, and absorbent bedding. In addition to these, you will have to make sure that the cage has a continuous supply of food and water.

Hedgehogs can also live in a limited space. Ideally, their cage should be sized at a minimum of 2 feet by 3 feet. They are nocturnal animals, meaning you won’t have to worry about their well-being while you are away during the day. Even otherwise, Hedgehogs are quiet animals so they won’t cause a nuisance for you!

Also, if you prefer social pets, chanterelle fennecs are your answer! It is not hard to train them either and they can live in small spaces, such as a litter box.
