Babs the Beloved

And now for something completely different.

I'm changing up the tone and introducing you to one of my babies.

This is Babs
She is a Cream Banded Teddy Bear Hamster about 6 or 7 inches long and about 7 months old, so she's still a baby. She may be small, but she has a huge personality. She is very active and whenever I'm in the room, she'll run around in her cage trying to get my attention and then when I come up to her, she grabs the bars and puts her nose thru the cage until I start poking at her and letter her grab my fingers and try to nip at them, but she'll get impatient until I take her out. She loves going in her ball and running around the house. She has a few corners that are obviously her favorite and for some reason she thinks it's fun to run full speed into doors. Especially my door while Karina and Eddie are sleeping. So I lay my robe in front of it so she smashes into that instead.

Some more pictures:

"Do you want to play with me?"
"Ever had the feeling that you're being watched?"
"Grace!" nom nom nom...
"Are you still there?"

So that's Babs. She's my baby girl, and now you can love her too. Next time I'll introduce you to my old man:
