Established in 2009, Vectis shows and breeds hamsters and duprasi with health, temperament and the improvement of the species in mind. I occasionally take in rescue hamsters who are rehomed or live with me as pets.

My favourite species is the Chinese hamster; they have a soft spot in my heart which no other hamster species can touch.

I’ve been privileged to learn from and work with some experienced exhibitors and breeders in the Hamster Fancy, and made some wonderful friends along the way. I’ve travelled across the country and into Europe with the small furries, and branched out into other pet rodent species (and one canine) –  all for the love of hamsters!
