My daughter Morgan has been asking for a hamster for about two years, and finally we decided to get one for her. She wanted a Russian Dwarf hamster, because they're really small and cute...but apparently a little more difficult to handle than the larger, Syrian (teddy bear) hamsters. Her name is Munchkin, and yes, she is adorable...but unfortunately she likes to! Sometimes it's just a little nip...yesterday she drew blood! She'd better watch it...I've got 3 cats who'd love to meet her! ~Kristin
