This is our grandaughter’s hamster, Gilbert. To me he is a mouse without a tail but to her he is like a child. She loves Gilbert. He really does have red eyes. She was excited when I told her I would take a photo of him and enter it in a challenge on Redbubble.

    Gilbert is gorgeous! I do not know much about hampsters ~ and please don’t laugh….:o)) It sounds they are much like Guinea Pigs (but maybe smaller)???

  • ha, Sharon I don’t know much about them either except to me they look like a rodent that I would catch in a trap. Yikes. lol Kaitlyn loves him though so being a Grandma, I had to make a fuss over him. (smile) The things we do for our kiddos.

    I was curios what it was, had to click on it, Penny! Excellent clear shot of Gilbert. Love his facial expression! Lovable and really cute pet. He looks at me through the screen and says; ‘na, na…and…..?’ Well, and wise, of course!!! With greatest compliments from Christiane

  • Awww, thanks Christiane. Thanks for the fav also. Our grandaughter is thrilled.
