This was when we first got him. He has really warmed up to us and has such a personality. I love him. (Another thing I never thought I'd say about a rodent!...)
Well; then our youngest son wanted his own hamster... (Sigh...) We told him he would have to save his money up and buy it himself, too. Today he finally had enough money. He bought a grey, short haired girl hamster. Here they are, meeting each other.
When we first put her in the aquarium, she started shoveling food in her mouth and her cheeks were sticking out for at least two hours! (I later read somewhere that hamster means 'hoard' in some language..) Which made sense to me, after seeing her do that. :P I don't think she is as cute as Rhino. She has red eyes. I don't know. She looks more like a mouse to me. Her name is Maia.
Someone said to separate them or they will fight to the death. The woman in the pet place said they should be fine together you just have to watch them and see how they do. I don't know. She was in with three other hamsters, and they weren't fighting. But... I think I will separate them, just cuz Maia is a girl and Rhino is a boy... If they haven't already mated, they will... I probably should have kept them separated from the start. Sigh... Well. Hopefully the pet place will take them, or we can find homes for the babies if there are any...
The pet place also had free kittens with a bag of food purchase... I didn't bring any kittens home though... :P
