||Six months old|
is a very special little guy. I got him from the local pet
store. They had many hamsters so I had to choose between them. Because I
couldn't choose, I placed my hand open in the cage and asked "Who wants
to come?" And out of nowhere, a funny little guy came and placed himself
on top of my hand. No doubt possible, this one wanted to come along. It
wasn't me who had chosen a pet, it was the pet who had chosen me. So I
took him with me and named him Knabbel (Dutch for nibbler).
He is the first hamster I ever had so this alone makes him special. He
likes to sleep with a little smile on his face. He also likes to stand
up looking out, like he's asking "Hey, why don't you let me out for a
while?" And when he's out, he likes to discover things: "What's this?"
"Can I eat this?" "Run run run, try to catch me if you can!" The
picture you see is when he's just gotten some new food. This is also his
favorite part of the day: when he gets new food or a hamster candy. He's
now got company from the hamster (named Prutske) of my girlfriend, they
live in separate cages. This little friend has made my life happier!
