When owning a hamster you have to expect the unexpected. Whether it be a tame hamster from a pet shop, a sudden escape or a surprise litter, these little guys certainly keep you on your toes.

When I got Little Man he took 3 months to tame. I did not expect it to take this long at all! It was kind of the same with Munchkin, but when Pea came to me she was tame, even though she hadn't been handled in weeks! Then there is Winter, always finding new and unexpected ways to try and escape.

I wasn't going to do this for U but something unexpected happened today and I thought I could tie it in. My partner rescued a gerbil...

He has been christened Dante (previously Jackson) and is a year old, and rather chubby. I will do a proper post on him after the A-Z challenge :)
