I have wanted to get one of those guys for a while!  I’ll probably get it from the rescue around here though.  They have all kinds of odd rodents that people have given up lol.

I’m glad that you are sticking by him despite the issues.  What a lucky little guy.

so sad about your first one 🙁  I had a dwarf hampster growing up (no idea what kind lol).  He lived way longer than he shouldve-  and died of overeating – my mom kept sneaking him in lettuce and other weird veggies.  We then lost him for 2 weeks in our house – he escaped our cage – they can do that!!! We found him randomly one night trying to climb up the refrigerator grates.  They’re sneaky little devils!!!!

Cute!  I had a couple hamsters growing up.  Escape artists, all of them.  One would end up waaay on the other end of the house behind the piano.  Or, imagine waking up, still in a sleepy stupor, thinking you hear something, looking down between your bed and nightstand and seeing a little face looking up at you.  That was Harvey the Wonder Hamster.

We used to have gerbils when I was younger.  They were so fun, except when they chewed their way out of their cage (we had a commerically designed one for them with tubes and stuff) and got lost!  We were so afraid that the cat would get them.  But we got them safely back to their cage.

When their wheel squeaked too much we used a dab of veggie oil as lube.  It always worked.

aww Jake is adorable.  I love robos so, so much. Just as a warning, they tend to be incredibly fast and insanely hard to catch if they get out.

Sorry to hear about Chester.  Jake is cute!  One of the reasons I fell in love with my husband is that he had a drarf hamster named Jerry.  I love animals so for him to have a hamster really gave him a plus in my book.  : )
