my name is Julie, and this is my Black Bear Hamster, Jake! What makes
Jake special is, he is the nicest friend a girl could ask for. Most other
hamsters bite and try to run away when they weren't handled, but not Jake.
I tried to see if I could connect with others, but I saw the lady at the
pet store moving a little black furball into a new cage. I ask why and she
said "we're separating him from his brother." I asked if I could pet him
and when he was in his new cage and she said it was fine.
I petted him and he was nervous, and rolled over on his back like he was
saying, "if you're going to kill me, kill me now." He looked at me and then
rolled back over and walked up to the end like saying, "Hold me." The lady
handed him to me and he like snuggled into my chest and I knew he was the
one. I bought him with my own money, I was twelve at the time I'm three now almost
fourteen. I had to wait in the car with him when my dad ran into the store to
pick up some cheese chews for him and we kinda bonded further.
When I brought him home he went into his new cage and my other hamster,
Mitch loved him. They were buddies but we never put them together, as males
can tend to fight. Mitch was sick and passed away. But Jake is fine, and
has still been my best bud ever since. He falls asleep in my arms when he
wants to. I can kiss him on his tiny lips and he licks my nose like a
little puppy. He is the nicest sweetest hamster ever!
