Foster Care For Hamster -- Meet Fabio
--by SissyLee, posted Jan 30, 2022
The rescue gave him a big warm bin with a good wheel, sand to bathe in and he turns out to have the longest blond hair they have ever seen. I was asked if I would foster him and I said yes and to everyone's delight, named him Fabio.
He is super friendly and will climb on my computer and wash up. Despite his neglect, his good nature is coming out. He is so excited about roaming around Hamsterdam and the scent of Popcorn leaves doesn't bother him. Popcorn is not bothered by Fabio's scent either.
The Little Critter Crew is once again swamped. There has been a rash of chinchilla rescues, two of which are pregnant and 11 hamsters are coming up from southern California -- they were in a high kill shelter and would have been killed New Year's Day. They are awaiting transport at a rescue, which has 120 (!) hamsters. Somehow the Little Critter Crew will find fosters for them.
People find every animal possible to obtain and discard. I am so glad for the dedicated rescuers that work diligently to help these tiny, sentient beings that are so overlooked.
