New Hamster!

Today I adopted a hamster from the KVHS. I don't know for sure what gender the hamster is, since nobody at the shelter was sure either. I've got to figure that out. So for right now the hamster is a girl. Her name is Pipsqueak. She is a dwarf hamster. She is about two inches long and dark, smoky, grey and white, with a little bit of black. She is extremely friendly for a dwarf hamster, who are known for being nippy and sometimes aggressive. I'll put up a couple of pictures and videos of her soon. Her favorite things are celery-flavored salt licks, sleeping in her hide house, running on her wheel, crashing into things in her ball, and getting pet in between her ears.

  1. Oh boy! - sounds like the beginning of Emily's Animal Kingdom. Only two inches?-I can hardly wait to see a picture of her. Never think of hamsters or rabbits when I think of the animal shelter. What other types of animals, other than dogs and cats, do they get?
