||Four months old|
||Rugby, West Midlands, England|
is a special boy to me. He's far more entertaining than television! When
he wakes up, I can't help but tell everybody in the room "Freddy's just
got up" its exciting stuff! He's a big softy, with lots of cuddles to
Freddy shares the living room, with five other hamsters, two rabbits, four
budgies, one Bengal finch, a dog and three humans.
One day not too long ago, Freddy had escaped, I didn't know if I'd find
him again in one piece, after six hours of searching for him, I located
him fast asleep safe and well under the budgie cage!
Seeing Freddy in the pet shop, he looked so cute. But bringing him home
was a complete nightmare, he tore the box he was in, in the car driving
home, as fast as I blocked up the hole, he tore another one, leaving me
with hardly any box, so the only thing I could think of, that was safe,
when I got home was to put him in was a saucepan whilst I built up his
new posh cage. At that point I started to worry we have got a right
rogue of a hamster here!
Then we had a very pleasant surprise. He's calm and placid, now that
he's home. He comes to his name, he follows you when he's in his
playpen, you can tell when he's eating has favorite treat, as he always
eats it with his eyes closed. He loves his sleep, but when he's awake,
he just loves his human company. He spends lots of time sitting on
shoulders, and ticking your ears (which gives me goose bumps!).
And to anyone with a hamster, you may never realize how much they mean to
you unless they escape. Like Freddy did! To have found him safe and
well, I almost threw a party I was so excited!
