is Kisses. Despite his name, he is a boy. His name went along with
my other hamster, Hershey. So together they formed Hershey-Kisses. Sadly,
Hershey passed away at the ripe old age of 2 1/2. She will forever be
remembered. But no matter what his name is, Kisses is just my cute Lil'
Shortly after I added Kisses to the household, I found out that he was a
tunneler at heart. He loves to tunnel and dig. Because of this I went
out and purchased a ten-gallon tank for him. I fill the tank Half - full
with shavings, and he has a blast. I never know where to find him. He
doesn't sleep into his house a lot. Who would when you could sleep in a
house you built yourself at the end of a tunnel?
As you see in the picture, the wheel he had was a small one. As he grew
bigger and bigger, I noticed he also grew fatter and fatter. One night i
sat in front of his cage and just watched him. He was too big for the
wheel, he couldn't run, only jog. So I went out and bought him a big
wheel. Within a couple weeks he slimmed right down. So now everything is
going all right. He just my sweet lil' boy, and I love him.
