When I was little, the first pet I had that I was solely responsible for was a hamster who I had named Kelly (after my favorite baseball player at the time). I kept him in my room with in his own little box with a wheel that would keep me up at night as he ran and ran. I really did adore him despite my first step into the land of insomnia.
One of the more fun things about hamsters is their ability to stuff more than you think possible into those (seemingly) tiny cheeks of theirs. Turns out, they have these little cheek pouches that allow them to hoard their food for later snacking or to carry it from one place to another. It looks adorable as these tiny hamsters grow before your eyes — only in the face.
