Please Welcome Our Newest "Baby"



I would like to introduce you to our newest member of the family...I would like to but.....he doesn't have a name yet. lol We are begging for suggestions...please, please, please. Apparently I am the person to call when you have a homeless animal or one who needs adopting. One of my best friends called me yesterday to ask me if I would take this little fella in. Her daughter already had a hamster and then went out and bought this guy but Dad says she can't keep them both...one has to go. She was more attached to the bigger hamster so this guy needed a new home. He is (if I did my research correctly) a Russian Campbell Dwarf Hamster with normal coloring. He is just so tiny and he's too cute. He fits in the palm of my hand and I have very small hands. I wish I had better pictures but they were coming out blurry since he rarely stayed still long enough to get a decent shot.



As soon as I can get him to co-operate, I will post a better photo. He seems to be adjusting to his new home well. He has already let me pick him up and he really likes to have the back of his head rubbed just behind the ears. Our zoo now consists of 3 cats, 2 dogs, 1 hamster and a turtle.



If anyone has any names to throw out, please leave me a comment. We've named so many animals, we just can't think of a good one. I will post his name when we decide on one.....WE REALLY NEED SUGGESTIONS!

Congratulations on your little hammyster...lol. He's a punkin so I vote for Punkin Head or some such malarkey for a name. He is cute!
