Post Re: Gertie

Gertie is a big round furball pancaking on my hand here after some freeroaming time. Gertie's idea of a fun freeroam is to check what edibles the other hamsters have dropped out of their cages in the spare room.
She gets bored quickly in the hall hamster playground and sits in a hide munching from her packed lunch. After all, toys aren't edible.

I wash my hands and pick her up when she comes to her door, then handle her and let her run around.
She comes back to me when she wants to go home so i put her back.

Every single time she goes straight to her sand bath jar for a good roll around!
To wash this human scent off her, no doubt.
She is very particular about human scents. She nipped my OH's finger when he picked her up. Did you wash your hands, i asked him. No, he said. Well, there you go, Gertie just told you to.
