These are true stories on the most cute sirian hamster girls who came out of the blue and turned my life upside down. While I had always been dreaming of having a kitten, one day I saw Lilly in a pet store and couldn't take my eyes of her. So I took her home. And, yes, you may say that I named and got friendly with a cat food but to me sirian hamsters are just perfect. Even if they are half blind like Kropeczka or left behind like Nutka. Welcome to the Fluffy Toughie world!
Lilly outgrew her
old green spinning wheel very fast. It became obvious when she became a mature hamster and had to bend to
90 degree angle to fit in it. It was painful to watch her trying to run with her
head up high so we didn’t wait.
I found the biggest (and the coolest) of
available hamster-friendly spinning wheels and ordered it right away. After few
days Lilly’s new black psychedelic running simulator arrived and she totally
fell in love with it: she was running in it, sleeping in it and eating in it.
My little scientist even invented the pee in spray (she peed while running). I
congratulated her and… went to wash my face (yuk!). After this dreadful experience
I stopped staring at the white spiral painted in front of the wheel. I must
have been hypnotized by Lilly spinning and spinning and spinning… Well,
eventually we got rid of this crazy spiral, ‘cause Lilly started to eat it up.
COME, MY PRETTY, LET'S TAKE A RIDE !
her of licking the glue but have no proofs. Anyway, it was safer to tear it off
the wheel, what I’ve done successfully while my little free-runner was sleeping,
so no hamster’s feelings were hurt. Next day she did notice something changed,
but she checked the wheel (inside and outside) and eventually approved. Funny
thing, but she quite quickly figured out that it’s impossible to get anywhere
in this vehicle. Few times she was running a bit, than taking off to check
the direction she was heading for, even digging out the sawdust in there, but
it was always the same-old-same (of course) so my clever girl realized there’s no big fun
in the spinning wheel (sooo boring), going round and round and round... The big fun was waiting for her... OUTSIDE...!
