Hamster the Acrobat

This is the bruised battered and beaten hamster that I posted about a few weeks ago. I really did not think that she was going to survive. We barely saw her move at all for days. Slowly she has come out of her shell. I think it took her awhile to figure out that she was safe all by herself. In fact she has become even more active than the other one now.
Her favorite thing to do is climb the bars of her cage. I can't tell if she enjoys doing this or if she's trying to find an escape route. (Click to enlarge this photo and check out her nose and paws)
I think it's amazing that those little bitty paws and claws can grab like that.
Only problem is she doesn't know how to get back down so she crashes to the bottom all the time. It must not hurt her because she does it over and over.

The little thing looks like she's thriving! It is amazing how they just scurry all over the place!

We had a hamster once. He was ALWAYS looking for an escape route! He went down the return register to the furnace twice. I had to fish him, all dusty, out of the furnace (fortunately he never went in the heating registers.) He escaped once and fell asleep with a snack behind the piano. He looked very cute back there, and he got a return trip to the cage.

Hi Jess...
Sorry I've been MIA for a while. Life's been a little hectic. I so need to catch up! BTW, the blog looks FANTASTIC!!!

I used to have a hamster that did the same thing...how strange!
