lost one of our dwarf hamsters in December 2004, we were scouting
the pet shops in our area for another little furry friend to love.
Fortunately, on a cold winter's night in January, we came across little
Snickers snuggled in the corner of a cage; she was only about a month
Snickers, who has normal coloration, caught our attention right away
with her silky coat, bright eyes, and the biggest ears we had ever seen;
they even had little black tips to set them off!
Since those first days, Snickers has grown into a calm, relaxed hamster
who rarely comes out during the day but runs on her wheel all night. She
loves sunflower seeds and is obsessed with burrowing under her sleeping
box (which she tries repeatedly to tip over). If you hold and pet her
just right, she'll even snuggle into your hand and start to purr like a
Snickers, you're truly one-of-a-kind and we love you so much!
