Acquired: Pet store
Posted Sep 26, 2013
TJ was my first Chinese hamster ever. I got him from this traditional pet store in Indonesia. At first when I just bought him, he bit my finger a few times when I tried to feed him. And then I trained him to be more friendly with people, by having my family and friends who came over to help me fed him. And it worked!
Weird thing was, whenever there were girls around his cage (except me or my mom), he got super active, like running all around the cage! A little womanizer he was haha!
He passed away around two years ago, because of old age. I had him for more than four years, which I guess was a pretty long in hamsters age. He was, and still is one of the best pets I have ever had. Recommended for kids above 8 years old and up, because he might get pretty difficult to train or keep at first. But when you get the hold of him, he's an awesome pet to keep :)
