About Dexter



Reason for Name:
He looks like a Dexter?
I looked up the meaning in a baby-name book afterwards and it means ‘right-handed’… so no help there.

Dex, Dextatron, Cheeky, Mister.


Approx. 4 months

Date Bought:
9th May 2012

Cage Colour:

Breed of Hamster:

Hes much porkier than Eve but the exact weight im not sure :P Damn my scale-less kitchen!

Black, brown, ginger and almost grey in places

Very good.

Excitable, impatient, keen and slightly mad

Extremely tame now. He took a full few weeks to get there but now he trusts us he’s very obedient and well-behaved :P

Not really. He wee’s on everything and anyone and has absolutely no shame in crapping in my hand …

Best Feature:
His wonky crumpled ears :P one stays upright and the other crumples down so he looks all lop-sided

Favourite Treat:
Sunflower seeds. Maybe even dried banana slices

Annoying Habit:
Weeing and pooing on me… It never amuses me. Ever.

Favourite Toy:
His super flashy light-up wheel (not my favourite because it’s sooooooo noisy)

Best Skill:
Does running around like a looney count?
No, then his awesome speed in the wheel. Usain Bolt has nothing on this guy ;)

Favourite Owner:
Im going to say me! But only because I want to feel loved ;)

Favourite Hiding Place:
In his corner. Oh how he loves that corner!

Most Active Time Of Day:
9pm – 2am and then again at 5am – 6am.
