Say hello to Marty, one of my Roborovski dwarf hamsters. He’s looking for the sunflower seed on my five year old Little Man’s hand….you can see how titchy he is!
My other Roborovski is Doc (yes, I’m a Back to the Future fan!) but he’s so fast I couldn’t get a decent photo of him. Perhaps I should play around with my camera settings but to be honest I don’t think I have to skill to catch him.
Both my little babies love to crawl over your hand but we daren’t pick them up because they are really fast and so tiny, if we lost one we’d have a job trying to find him again. So we have to settle with them running over our hands, often at the speed of lightning. Marty will let you stroke him but to be honest, at the size of your finger there is not much to stroke!
The used to be caged together, but Doc was very violent to Marty and we had to separate them. Poor Marty was in a terrible state, when we moved him, I wasn’t sure if he was going to live, but he did and he’s fine now, all wounds cleared up. He’s still the most friendly one and Doc, will nip you whenever he gets the chance.
They are nocturnal and often don’t wake up until after I’ve gone to bed, but they are always awake first thing in the morning and ready to play.
So what do you think of my little baby? I’d love to hear about your pets.
