I’m so handsome, even though Mummy won’t give me a mirror to have in my house I know I’m such a good looking boy with my brown and white coat as I am always being told. I’m so soft like silk! and always very clean. My house is cleaned out regularly so I never get horrible germs.
My Mummy says I’m lucky as not every hamster or other small pet animal is given a second thought; some of us get taken from the shop and are mistreated, abused and sometimes stood on, dropped – and even murdered! Some of us aren’t even given the right diets we need and some of us are just forgotten about and left with no food or water for days, which can seem like years for us.
My Mummy gives me so much yummy stuff! Treats, fruit and honeysticks, as a complement to my normal food – biscuits, seeds and nuts too! I could go on about it all day! YUM! She also gives me bits of fresh apple and carrot, of course, at room temperature as my tummy doesn’t like cold things.
I’m as fit as a fiddle with the aid of my running ball – at least 15 to 20 minutes every day I get in there and I love it!
My teeth never stop growing so I have this fancy beechwood in my house that I can chew on to file my teeth, it’s the only wood that doesn’t splinter so I don’t get nasty cuts in my mouth.
I have this STONE that looks like some grapes too, It’s called a salt and mineral lick; it goes so well with my decor!
I only really come out at night but I have a wheel and some tubes to have fun in while Mummy is asleep. I sometimes make so much noise I wake her up and she thinks I’m having a party – HAH! …if only! But I love my Mummy, and my Grandmummy when she comes to say ‘Hi’ to me.
I am glad I have such a loving, caring family that know how to treat me right. I am truly a lucky hamster!
