Finding out what treat is each of the hamsters favourite sometimes takes a few attempts. You gotta try a few things until you get that one thing that lasts a matter of seconds when in-front of your pets.
For Dexter, it has to be sunflower seeds. They don’t last two seconds when in front of his face. He hoovers them up and shells them all one by one leaving little piles of shells all over his cage. Saying that, he could do with some. I havent given him them in ageees!
Then there’s Eve. She is a bit more indecisive. Carrots seem to disappear pretty quickly in her cage. I would have once said shelled peanuts but nowadays they seem to end up sitting in her bowl for days.
And that left Casper. Mum helped me out with this one, after spoiling him rotten whilst I was on holiday. He has two favourites. They just cant be distinguished between each other because he LOVES them both equally.
Broccoli is one, he demolishes the ‘tree’ bit and then scoffs the branchy bit like his life depends on it.
And now I have decided his most absolute fav munch has to be apples. Red ones, not the sweet green ones. He sat in the position from the photo for a good ten minutes, filling his belly with tasty tasty apple! Just sat there.. peacefully… silently….
By the way, he does get a full bowl of food and empties it out on the plastic hence the bowl looks empty here. He has escaped embaressment here because I haven’t photographed the mess he made on his 2nd floor… You were lucky bub!
So here is my question for the wonderful furries that read the blog;
