My little buddy - Honey the resilient Hamster

Honey was every kid's dream. Not only was Honey an easygoing Campbell Dwarf hamster that loved to be handled and played with, she was easy to take care of as well.

This breed in particular is common in the United States as a pet, and is readily sold at various pet stores. The breed, as shown by Honey herself, is very hardy and enjoys interaction with people, kids included. Honey was a regular eater, showing enthusiasm when fed and always looking for the opportunity to play afterwards.

We bred her with another male hamster we had in the family, and while she was a good mother, she felt threatened by us during the process and ate her young, which is common with hamsters. (If breeding, it is possible to separate the babies from the mother to give them a chance.)

This breed is easy to take care of and universally friendly. The most notable benefit of this breed, as shown by Honey, is their playfulness. Honey spent most of her lifetime in her hamster ball, rolling around the house following us everywhere. To children used to dogs, this was a huge benefit as she wanted to be where we were.

When she died, she did so after rolling around in the backyard at top speed in her ball. We honestly believe her little heart just gave out. While we were sad to lose her, she was a fantastic representation of just how great that breed can be. I highly recommend it, especially with children!
