name is Oatmeal; I'm a Syrian female hamster and a rescue that was
adopted by my new owners and a very happy girl at that! Here is my story
and how I found my new home! I was a very young baby and my owners
decided they had to many hamsters and brought me to a shelter and this
is where I stayed for three months, gosh was I scared, no one to play
with- where did my brothers and sisters go? My mommy is nowhere to be
seen also, and all these sounds here and nowhere to hide! When I get up
to play or check things out here there are all these strange people
walking by my cage and the barking of dogs scares me and no one to
cuddle me to let me know it's okay and I'm safe! My life is lonely here
as there are so many animals here that need good homes and not enough
people who know we are here - I'm a very lovable hamster who still is a
bit scared, but does not bite and would love to have a home of my own!
My life changed for the better when I noticed these two people standing
by my cage one day, a little longer then normal as they usually stop for
a few seconds, but not these people they were actually talking to me and
opening my cage door! Boy, I better not bite and if I sit pretty they
may like me enough to take me home. What's this? They are picking me up
and putting me in a huge cage! Gosh it's so big. It's all for me!
I soon arrive at my new home and there are other smells here almost like
me! More hamsters live here too! Fourteen to be exact.
Well this was a few months ago and I'm so happy to have a home at last,
and a very happy lucky little girl. Finally!
