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!
Did you know that Kropka is not just a common name...? Well, it actually means something in my beautiful, complicated native language which is Polish. It means a dot. I think it suits her very well under the circumstances...
And this word Kropeczka I often use in exchange means a little dot, a dottie, you might say... It's diminution for Kropka. To think about it, you might have known that (there is a slight chance some of you have learnt Polish LOL) but certainly you have no idea what was Kropeczka's previous name. Hah! I've got you 'cause yes she had one. Now, let me tell you: her first owner called her... Dżungulina. I know, I know... Don't feel down if you're having trouble pronouncing this... I couldn't even remember it at first...! It was a long story and a four years old child's idea who called little Kropka after her longhair white father, Dżunguś.
KROPKA THE LITTLE DOT
No wonder Kropka has never responded to that name. It wasn't really her, it was kind of... borrowed. For me she's always been Kropeczka. From the very beginning, since I heard about her, I've been thinking of her as of a little black dot. But, of course, she's so much more than just the name which never defines us completely. We've got to know each other a little bit since I brought her home and there are a few certein things I can tell about her for sure: Kropeczka LOVES to run and LOVES to climb especially while playing outside the cage. All the time she must move around, barely she stops, just like this little bunny from an old Duracell add. Never she looks tired. She fell for the big wooden wheel which she uses at her playground (that is inside our wardrobe) and not only she runs in it but also swings in it which looks funny.
If I was to name other things Kropka likes I would mention: yoghourt (you may calm down, Juergen, finally a normal hamster who doesn't despise it, hehe), fresh green food, eating from the ground, cosy fluffy textures, sleeping with her head down and... me! :-) I can tell by the way she's diving into my arms, rushing down the tubes to greet me at the cage door and because she kissed me; my nose has been licked twice. As for her dislikes I could list for example: peanuts (that's weird), water dispenser, hay (that's a long story for another occasion) and staying in the cage. I know it sounds funny but I'm being terrorized by a hamster. Well, she's a piratess after all and you HAVE TO let her out each time she wants to (and that's almost always). My little dot just LOVES free running. And I love her :-)
