Answer #1

I used to have a hamster named Zippy :) He lived to be 3.

Here’s information I found for you:

Most airlines do not have hamsters on their list of animals, so they fall into the “other/general” category. U.S. Air, American Airlines, TWA, United Airlines and Continental require you to put the hamster into the cargo hold.

Delta Airlines allows 1-2 hamsters in the passengar cabin. The cage counts as carry-on luggage and must meet with carry-on size limitations. Delta allows only 2 animals in the cabin at a time, so the airline must be notified at the time the tickets are purchased.

There are some conditions:

* Fees: $45-$60 (independent of cabin or cargo). In cargo, the fee is per cage, and animal quantity is unlimited.
* Age: Hamsters must be at least 8 wks old at the time of travel.
* Health: Each hamster must have a veterinary statement of good health within 30 days of travel.
