||One year old|
||New York, USA|
we decided we wanted a hamster, we never pictured they would be as
much fun as they were, but Perrie was an exception. He bit when anyone
stuck their hand in the cage, and did not like to run or play at all. That
did not stop me from taking him out every day and playing with him in his
play-pen. After a bit of socializing with me, he is now my best friend. He
hardly ever bites, and loves to play and run around in his wheel.
We got Perrie and his sister, Speedy, from a store near us. They had been
brought back by someone who did not want them. The sales-lady offered them
to us for free. We were informed they were both female, but eventually
found out Perrie was a male. They had to be separated, and since then,
Perrie has been a complete "mama's boy."
Perrie loves to explore, and especially loves running in his "critter
cruiser." In the picture, he is going in his "critter couch", which he
loves to sleep in. Once he's in, he's usually half-buried in shavings, so
I was lucky to get this photo while he was still awake. On warm days, I
take him out in his playpen outside. He loves it so much. Perrie always
loves to play with me and give me hamster-kisses. He is truly a wonderful
addition to our family, and has touched our lives.
