I want a hamster but my parents wont let me?

I've wanted a hamster for over a year now but whenever I bring up hamsters, my parents start yelling at me and don't even listen to what I have to say! I tried asking for one in my birthday, Christmas and every other special occasion. I don't see why they won't let me buy one!1 I have good grades, do my chores, respect my parents, and I am really nice. I promised them that if I buy one, I will take care of it and pay for its food and stuff. I've done lots of research on hamsters and know everything I need to know in order to be a responsible hamster owner. Are there any ways that I could convince them to let me buy one? Thanks in advance!

    I was in the same boat. I just told them I was responsible had good grades, etc... Tell them that you'll take care of it for it's whole life, which is about 2 years... Tell them it's a shorter commitment than a cat or a dog. Good luck :)

    Do some research and tell your parents they are really easy to take care of. Volunteer at an animal shelter to show you are responsible. Save up some money, do extra chores. Trust me, they will eventually cave in. Good luck!!!!

    I think they just think you aren't Responsible enough to handle a Hamster. That's one of the Main Reasons why most Parents don't let their kids have Pets. Why not wait until your Older?

    Maybe your parents are not animal people? Trying showing them some of your research and let them know you did your homework.
