Dexter has got himself a hobby.
Climbing up stuff is way too mainstream. Its all about the rolling back down!
Handling Dexter can sometimes be very testing. Hes only a baby; new to being handled and can be skittish and jumpy. There is no such thing as sitting still in Dexter’s books.
Being patient with him is vital and letting him explore is important for him to gain our trust (and for us to trust that he wont go jumping off the sofa). Letting him explore is always energetic (for all parties involved) so any sort of obstacle – being an arm or leg – is exciting stuff!
In the picture you can see Dexter sliding down my boyfriends back after scuttling up his arm and round onto his shoulder!
Its all fun and games when he gets his wriggle on!
Hamsters have incredibly poor depth perception which means that climbing from one hand to another can look the same as climbing off a table onto the floor. They cant judge the height of things, so catching him from slipping far can be tricky!
He seems happy enough climbing up and down us at the minute so Im pretty sure there wont be any heroic leaps off the worktops any time soon!
