Wow, I have been on this forum a few months for my guinea pigs and now I found out I can chat here about my hamster.
Anyway, she is about a year 1/2 and she has a big tumor on her belly - is this common? Old Age???
She is a dwarf hamster and I am sad to admit she is in a crittertrail1 with tubes. She loves to sleep in the tubes.
Hamsters are very easy to care for compared to guinea pigs and my daughter just loves her. She knows her name (Angel) and she comes to you when you call her. She is very territorial with her cage so we know not to put our hands in her cage because she will bite you. We take the side round hole off and call her and she comes out that way. She doesn't bite hard at all, she does nibble at you when she is out of her cage. She likes to run a lot but there have been times when she cuddles you, YES cuddles you. I talk to her and her ears perk up and she just lets me hold her so gently and she doens't run. She is an awesome pet, but we are worried that she may be heading for the rainbow bridge.
Thanks for your input.
