Guys, meet my new dwarf hamster.
His name is PP Boy. At first I called him Baby, but the more *aromatic* he got, the more I started calling him PP Boy and the name just stuck.
I'm currently working on getting him toilet trained. The best part about PP Boy is that he is not a biter. He doesn't like being picked up and handled but he doesn't struggle or nip when he's in my hands. A couple of years back, I kept a satin albino dwarf hamster (those pure white ones with red eyes) and that one was a biter, and he was obsessed about doing marathons on the wheel. PP Boy is just about the opposite. He does some mild workout on the wheel at night but he's more contented taking naps and foraging for sunflower seeds. He's crazy about dried mealworms though. I'm planning to get him a small packet of dried alfalfa or timothy hay next week. Apparently hammies need their veggies too.
