Spots is my very funny but cute dalmatian hamster. I got her from Robinsdale Farm and Garden. She was there for almost a
year, so she was a little wild - just not very tame. I've had two hamsters
before her but neither of them was as sweet as Miss Spots. Her soft but
silky coat makes her cute, but her actions make her funny.
When she eats,
I sometimes give her a piece of her food, and she takes it in her paws and
then stuffs it in her cheeks. She can fit 35 sunflower seeds in her
mouth at once! (Yes, I counted.) She loves to eat and she puts all the food she gets up in
her wheel. So she's getting fat because she can't run in her wheel - she has decided
it's food storage.
One of the best things about Miss Spots is she is really smart! One day, I took her ladder (which she uses to get to her
wheel) out to clean it and she really wanted to get up to her wheel. So she climbed
the bars on the side of her cage, which she had never done before, put more food up there, then jumped
down. This is why I love Miss Spots so much! She is great!
