Innovative ten-year-old opens ‘Hamster Hotel’ to make extra pocket-money
A ten-year-old schoolboy has become a mini businessman, after opening up a hamster hotel in hopes of earning extra pocket money.
After setting up cages for his own pet hamster Smudge, Alex Dellamuro from Cornwall has set up a hotel for other pets and will charge owners £1 a night to look after their animals whilst they’re on holiday.
Alex told his local radio station that ‘guests’ will be given bottled water (because Alex doesn’t like tap), along with toys and entertainment, but that owners must provide their own food, bedding and cage.
After designing a poster and uploading online, the schoolboy has already made a booking and will soon welcome a family of guinea pigs.
Wishing you lots of luck Alex!
