If you have followed my blog you may remember the story about Hammy (theĀ hamster) and his near death experience. I am happy to report that Hammy is mostly well and has almost doubled in size -just compare the photo in the original blog to this one!

I think it is normal for them to gain weight…although he sits like this all the time which is both funny and strange. One question though for any hamster experts that may be reading this; Do you notice the small red spot below his left eye? It has been there for months and is not going away. Any idea what it might be?

Just for fun we weighed Hammy and my other sons hamster (little Ham) and this chubby one weighs 2.5 oz and the other is 1 oz!
