I won't lie, I was NOT happy when Courtney came home carrying a cage containing little dwarf hamsters. Even though I have had rabbits, I have not been a fan of smaller rodent pets. When I caught a glimpse of the two cute little faces peeking out of their sleep house though, oh my! These little babies belong to one of Courtney's college roomates who was going home to Texas for the holiday, thus the extended vacation here in Conway.
After researching a little on what type of hamster they are, I believe that they are Roborovski dwarf hamsters. They are so teeny tiny with such sweet little faces and no nasty rodent tail. I actually like them. :-)
The plan was for Courtney to keep them in her room, but given that they appear to be nocturnal and are very busy little girls at night running on their wheel, I offered to let them live in my office. Most of their day is spent in their little sleep house, but they do get busy at night or when I fill up their little food dish.
I like to give them little pats during the day, but I don't dare to pick them up for fear that they would jump out of my hands and a dog would mistake them for a snack.....a little hamster cookie. ;-)
Never a dull moment here at Casa Woolen Rabbit.
