think Blaze is the most adorable hamster that ever existed, and he is
the best pet hamster ever.
I got Blaze fifteen days after my old hamster died. When we brought him home
he was only 4.5 centimeters long and had a beautiful, silky, gray coat.
He was the special one out of the other twenty hamsters there that looked
just like him. Blaze is so sweet. He doesn't bite, and I doubt he ever
will. Whenever he doesn't want something, he takes his little hands and
bats them at you. It's so funny! You barely feel a thing and it's cute,
just like him. Every one who sees him is awed, and wants to hold him
really badly. Even the younger one in the family holds him! I hold him
almost every day.
Blaze is a deep sleeper, like most hamsters. He does not like to be held
or disturbed when he is sleeping. He is rarely seen running in his
wheel, but we know he does from where his wheel is positioned.
My family calls him a sucker for his favorite treat, which we call
Peanut Butter Balls. It has sesame seeds on the outside and an unshelled
peanut on the inside (he is clutching one in the picture). He mainly
eats the sesame seeds. These treats are the main way we get him out of
Blaze has surely grown a lot. He is still so small! His coat has slowly
changed to a beautiful brown-grey, as you can see above.
I love Blaze so much. I am very proud to be the owner of this great
hamster. I hope he stays with us much, much longer.
