is a Black Bear hamster. We first saw him as a tiny
two-week-old with his mom, brothers and sisters. My six year old
daughter fell in love with the babies, so I put a hold on one of
them. We had to wait about two weeks till they were old enough to
leave mom and eat on their own. We picked out Rocket!
Rocket was named after his spaceship home, and settled in very
quickly. He turned out to be the perfect little guy. He's very
calm and has never bitten anyone or ran away. At night time he
loves to run in his wheel and eat his favorite foods, sunflower
seeds, nuts and fresh fruit and veggies. When my daughter plays
with him he is quite happy to sit in her hand or alongside Barbie
as they take a ride in her toy car! My daughter is still in love
with Rocket and so is the rest of the family.
