||Three and a half months old|
||Umbrous Long-Haired Hamster|
is an Umbrous Long-Haired Hamster - that is the official name
- long-haired because of her silkiness, and slight rear end "quot;whiskers"quot;
style!! What makes her special? Well, whilst I was choosing at the
pet-shop, Snuggles came out to greet me, clambered all over me - and
did not want to get off! And that's how I think she identified me, as
wanting me to be her caretaker! Since she has been home, she has been
an incredibly gentle hamster, very tame, and always loves her bedtime
cuddle (incidentally this is my bedtime not hers!!) - she realizes by
the occasional dimming of lights when I am getting ready to settle
down. Snuggles loves her cuddles too - whenever she comes out of her
cage - she sits patiently on your arms, waiting for the cuddles, and
stroking - she sits there for a good five mins of attention! Then at the
end - will happily hold out a freshly-pulled poop as a way to say
thank-you...well, yes Snuggz, thanks a lot!!
When she comes out of her cage, she doesn't make an immediate run for
it, like most hams, she has a slow exploration, and listens for
whenever I call her name. She accepts treats gently out of my hands,
and gets along quite well with my other hamsters (I have five altogether).
Snuggles' favorite activity has got to be acrobatics in her cage,
followed closely by running on her wheel! She has her own page on
my website too.
