||Four months old|

My name is Tanis but mom often calls me Tanabeth. My adoptive
parents brought me and my brother home when we were just three weeks old
- and they thought that I was a boy! But mom kept checking up on us and
one day she discovered the mix-up before any damage was done.
Unfortunately my brother and I couldn't live together anymore, but I
found a great apartment just next door with Cricket, mom and dad's other
female hamster. They weren't sure that we would get along, but things
have been going really well even though Cricket is much older than I am;
she is almost two years old. Cricket is happy that I am here too, since
it can get pretty cold in Minnesota and I keep her warm when we sleep
during the day.
I have gotten really big during the last few months and I eat a lot but
I keep in great shape by running it off all night long. I am very
friendly and mellow and my nose is always wiggling because there's
always something new to explore!
Tanis is definitely the most relaxed and amiable hamster we have ever
had. She was trusting and friendly right from the beginning and still
climbs into your hand when she wants to be held. She quickly made her
way into our hearts and we love her dearly!
