Introducing Balthazar!

I don’t know about you, but whenever I see a blogger posting about their pet (whether it be a kitten, bunny rabbit, dog or even hedgehog) I am immediately filled with delight and happiness and sigh a big fat ‘awwhhh’ out loud.  Now, my mum and sister are allergic to cats and dogs (I would love nothing more than a little kitten running around at home) so for my whole life we have always had little hamsters!  I’ve never done a post on hamsters before but thought I’d introduce you to the current cutest member of the Snooks family!

Ladies and gents, I introduce you to Balthazar, the light of my life!  Balth is coming up to two years old now so is turning into a little old girl, but she is still as energetic and loving as ever.  Whenever I’m feeling down I just look to Balthazar and she instantly makes me happy. 

I’m the trainer of Snooks family hamsters and am always given the job of holding the hamsters first and teaching them not to bite, but Balth has been the only hamster we’ve ever had that has never bitten, ever!  She loves cuddles and I like to feed her food whilst holding her (bonding sessions).

She had to have a little operation a few months ago as she had a little lump that kept growing on her ear, so a vet removed it and she has been happy (but silly looking) ever since and was so brave, running all over the place once she came round from the anaesthetic. 

Our last little hamster was called Bishmael, who was equally as loved and adorable. You can watch a video of Bish and I here -

The last Snooks hamster–Bishmael!

There we have it!  I hope you enjoyed (and squealed ‘awwh’) at this post.  I’d love to know if you have any little pets, tweet me a photograph! @katesnooks

Do you have a little hamster? What’s your favourite pet to have?

  1. Aww I love all animals but hamsters are a firm favourite of mine:-) ive had a few as a child. Me and my sister had two syrian hamsters and we'd have them out at the same time and they never fought! I cant wait to have one again when I have my own place. But it will be kept in a separate room to my snakes lol :-P

  3. Awh! She's such a cutie!
    I keep meaning to introduce my hamster Brando on my blog, but he's so difficult to get pictures of, he scurries around FAR too quickly for me to snap him.

  9. I think hamsters are adorable (I mean look at their little faces) but I've never had one that didn't bite! I got a pair of rats two years ago though (one actually just passed away last night) and they're such amazing little pets, never been bitten once :)

  18. Oh that is absolutely adorable! He is such a cutie. I don't think people would be as happy if I did a "pet post" as I keep two snakes which don't have the ahhhh factor to them like little Balthazar does. One handsome little boy there.
