Cookie and Boots were born two days after their mom arrived in our care. The mom came from the US from a large rescue. They are a pair, and must be adopted together.
Cookie is light cream coloured and Boots is black. Cookie is the larger of the two, Boots is quite petite.
Boots is much faster than Cookie, don’t blink or she will be gone in a flash. Both love to be on the move constantly, unless they are sleeping. Both are very friendly and will climb into your hand to be pulled out of their aquarium. They love to run about and climb all over you. They like to build mounds with their cage bedding and sleep inside them together. They enjoy chewing paper towel rolls and running through them.
Like many hammies they hoard their food in every corner of their enclosure. They like to eat a few different foods besides their hammy food. Both will nibble on cucumber, banana and plain cheerios, We tried apple and blueberries but neither seem to care for it. They’re most active in the late evening and enjoy spending time with humans. If they are awake they will put their little hands on the side of the enclosure when you approach them. They can’t wait for you to take them out to play.
