"We purchased our first dwarf hamster about a month ago. We walked into the pet store and she had her little front paws on the front of the cage, her ears all perky as if to say "Look at me - I will make a great pet!". Well, we couldn't resist. We named her Despereaux. It took her a little time to become acclimated to us, but now she is so funny! Every morning when she hears us enter the kitchen she climbs to the top of her cage (we have the Critter Trail X, which has a viewing station for her - great cage!), and starts poking her nose out to say good morning and to get her Cheerios! YES - CHEERIOS! She loves them. We feed one at a time, she usually eats 3 - 4 pretty quickly, then will take a few and hide them for later. We crack up laughing at how quickly she hides them and then comes back for another. We let her hide maybe 3 - 4 for later. We don't want her to eat only Cheerios. In the afternoon after she eats her pellet food she will again go to the viewing station looking for us - this time for popcorn! We just use popcorn that we pop at home with a little oil, no salt or butter. One piece of popcorn takes her 5 minutes to eat - it is hilarious to see how big the one piece is in her hands - and the cutest part is that she sits and holds it with her front paws. Don't waste money buying the expensive treats in the store! Needless to say we are very pleased with her. We look forward to many more fun times with her."
