Dexter is not only a cute fluffy little animals. He is my secret weapon.
For too long now, I have let my boyfriend play his xbox games without distractions.
I can usually keep up with his games and can even ask questions – normally followed by smiling and nodding on my behalf – but never-the-less I like to show an interest in his hobby.
ANYWAY, I thought I would step up my attempts to show an interest by getting the hamster involved!
Plopping Dexter on my boyfriends back soon led to a very excitable hamster sitting on his shoulder and lets be honest –
anyone who can slaughter trolls, explore a computer generated wilderness and save the world ALL with a fidgety hamster on their shoulder deserves a medal in my eyes!
As you can see from the picture both parties seem unphased by the other.
A deceptively calm photo you ask?
A very deceptive photo indeed. Soon the boyfriend was fidgeting as much as the hamster and that meant 1-0 to me! WOOHOO!
Dexter finally nibbled all the way down to the wooden core of his chew-stick. Which meant that a new own was in order!
The stick you see in the picture is is a ‘Hamster Honey Stick‘ which comes in a pack of two for £1.99 from Pets at Home. The have little plastic clasps at the top so can be fastened onto any cage with bars and hamsters LOVE them! It also wears there teeth down which is really important for rodents!
He tucked into it seconds after it had been put in his cage.
And no I havent been starving him, he just loves the honey covered sunflower seeds as we’ve established they are his favs 😀
He looks cute scoffing his face!
