Little Bit

We got a new baby hamster today! He doesn’t have a name yet, but I’ve been calling him Little Bit. We’re thinking that maybe this little guy will be named Clarence, or Willow, or Clarence Willoughby. If we name him Clarence (Willoughby) it’ll be because of how awesome it would be to have a little hamster stand up for a treat when he hears “Clarence”! So far today he has built himself a little nest in his watchtower, carrying a mouthful of shavings at a time up the tube. After watching him do this for 15 minutes, Allan got the idea to give him one of my clean hankies. Allan opened the top to the watchtower and offered the corner of the hankie to Little Bit. The little guy sniffed it, looked at it and then grabbed it with his mouth and hands and pulled it out of Allan’s fingers with the look of:  “Ah! This is what I’ve been looking for! This’ll go on top of my shavings mattress perfectly!” He is currently cuddled under his blankie sleeping away the day. It’s been a busy day for such a little guy. I’ll post pictures of the little guy as soon as I have charged batteries.

Any name suggestions for a grey male hamster?

    Clarence is a fantastic name. I vote for that one.

    I really like Clarence, but Theodore also comes to mind for a grey hamster.

    Clarence is a wonderful name. 🙂 Although it makes me think of Clarence Thomas closely followed by Clarence Carter. I wonder which Clarence he would most resemble?
