Welcome Rufus

He's in there running

Sunday Richard and I adopted a hamster. We named him Rufus. He is a Teddy Bear hamster (aka a Syrian hamster).




He's a QUICK one and he's still very timid around humans. We need to ease him into being held by us.






Rufus' favorite thing to do so far is run on his lil' wheel. He really gets that thing going too. On Sunday night he ran for 3 hours!

It's been hard to snap a good picture so far but once Rufus get's to know us, I'm sure he'll pose wonderfully. Until then, these less than stellar photos give you an idea of our little guy.
