Introducing MoonHammie...Actually, his name is Wreford. He's a Russian dwarf hamster and he's all mine.
Last Friday, we went to the pet shop to get some fish related product (Dave's babies) and whilst there I came across this little fella. I've come across a lot of cute creatures like this in my time but for some reason, that night, I actually felt like I wanted to care for one.
Dave seemed quite keen on the idea but I decided to think it over - and went back for him the next day.
He does most of his living in this funky, space age looking cage (in MoonDoggie colours, no less);
but does most of his real living in his mini hamster ball.
Wreford has pretty much consumed my life this week - but in a good way. We've been getting to know each other and I've been researching all I can about caring for him.
Edited to add this adorable shot I got of Wreford eating his breakfast this morning:
