Hamsters are lovely and furry and cute and snuggly and cute (did I already mention that theyre cute?) but oh-my-looooooord they have some terrible habits! Awful, terrible, disgusting behaviour that makes me want a hamster-naughty step!
Here are my top 3 worst hammy habits.
Flicking their own poop.
Theres no pleasent way to put it, they fling poop like an olympic sport – Disgusting creatures! And its more the fact they dont discreetly do it. They full frontal bury their little faces in their groins and then fling their crap to the fursthest corner of their cage. There is no set toilet area; just where-ever the poop lands, the poop stays. Dirty dirty dirty! I might point out that once again Eve is pretty well mannered. Cas and Dex are the main culprits here!
In the last 2 days alone I have been peed on twice. Casper was guilty of the first offence. There he was soundly sleeping in my Jack Wills hoody pocket (emphasis on the nice expensive hoody) and decided to tinkle all inside my pocket. THANKS CAS >:( Then just today Dexter was climbing the mountainous region of Sofa-Land and just as it came to Mount-My-Lap he reversed up and weed all on my leg. Its just not cool guys! Thank goodness Eve has a little class!
And then there is the tip top worst hamtser habit EVER… I love hamsters but they seriously can annoy me at times like any pet. I am not an evil person, I love them dearly and play with them lots and feed them treats but there is just some habits that grind me down.. And that top thing has to be….
Running on their noisey flying saucers in the early hours.
Its not the running that’s so frustrating; its when the saucer is slightly off tilt and so bangs with every step on the side of the cage. A repetitive banging, clanging, banging,clanging, banging,clanging, banging,clanging, banging,clanging, banging,clanging, banging,clanging, banging,clanging, banging… Its the WORST annoyance possible with hamsters ever. We have good and bad nights with them. More bad than good I might add. Oh the joys of small furries!
What is your furries worst habit ever?? Is it worse than keeping your humans up every night… ;D
