||One year old|
||Davis, California, USA|
is our little pet hammy. We bought her from PetCo when she was only
several weeks old. She stood out from the rest of her litter because she
was the cutest and the first one to go straight to the hamster wheel
after being woken up.
After the first few days we got her she got very sick, most likely
because of some unsafe cotton bedding she swallowed that got stuck in
her digestive system when she was at the store. We all expected her to
die, but luckily it passed and every day since then that we have had her
has been a blessing!!
Oreo's favorite thing to do is run around in her hamster ball, but when
she first gets put in it, she will run to the darkest corner of the
house and sit there like an emo hamster. Sometimes she will stand on her
hind legs in front of the door and wait to be put in her ball. One of
the tricks she does is she likes to try to escape and we have lost track
of how many times she has. Oreo isn't the tamest hamster, but she can be
held and touched, although she may get irritated if she isn't in the
mood for that. She doesn't bite though; she is just a solitary animal.
Her favorite foods are sunflower seeds and any type of fresh food, like
cheese or mealworms. She likes crawling into tight spaces such as
cardboard tubes and runs all night on her wheel.
