||Four months old|
||Russian dwarf hamster|
||Fallbrook, California, USA|
is my hamster Jonas II. He is a winter white Russian dwarf hamster and
he is four months old. He is named after my original hamster Jonas. My original
Jonas was sick and passed away and I was heartbroken. I went to the
same Petsmart I bought my first Jonas from and this new little guy was in the
same cage! It was meant to be that I have this new hamster Jonas II. He is
special to me because he is a sweetheart and from day one he has helped my
broken heart heal from losing my first Jonas. I call him a snowball because he
is pure white. He is my best friend. Jonas II's favorite foods are yogis,
sunflower seed, and banana.
A while ago Jonas broke his foot from climbing on his wire cage and it got
stuck. It was so scary and I am so glad that I heard him crying and rescued
him. Even though it was broken and has healed a little crooked it doesn't
slow him down.
He is a brave hamster and now lives in a big glass aquarium. NO more wire
cages. They are too dangerous for dwarf hamsters. Jonas is so smart that he
is potty trained. I bought him a hamster potty and he learned how to do it all
by himself. Every day he goes crazy to get his yogi out of my hand. I wanted
to honor Jonas II because he is my buddy and he really helped me get over the
loss of my first hamster Jonas.
