One night he escaped (he was a master escape artist). I was sleeping and started vaguely thinking that there were whiskers touching my toes. "Whiskers?" I suddenly thought, and woke up. I pulled back the blankets and, sure enough, there was Hamuel. He had come to find me! His cage is outside my room and I guess he had tracked me down and clambered up my blankets from where they had slid to the floor. Maybe he wanted to play or he wanted me to feed him. Either way, it's very cute that he came to find me when he could have gone anywhere else in the house.
Hamuel didn't live very long. We're not really sure how long he had been wandering the back hallways before he had come into my craft store under the door crack, so he probably went without water for a long time and ate some unsuitable things. But during his time in my house, he was the perfect companion.
I miss him very much and I hope he has lots of yummy foods in Hamster Heaven. Here are some cute hamster pics from around the Web. I was in a hamster sort of mood today :)
This seated hamster looks very devout and holy, huh?
This little guy looks strong! Hamuel liked to monkey bars around the cage too.
Wow, this owner went to extreme measures to protect their little guy from head damage! Or, perhaps he plays mini league football?
I guess he likes tomatos. I know I do!
