Very Important Pet: Celaneo the happy hamster
FAIRBANKS, Alaska (KTVF) - This weeks VIP is a little hamster who loves food almost as much as she loves naps.
Here’s what Britley Calkins, an animal handler with Fairbanks North Star Borough Animal Shelter, had to say:
“Celaneo is a fourteen-week-old hamster that came in with her mother and siblings and she is still looking for her new forever home.
If you are not familiar with hamsters, they are nocturnal, meaning they are up at night and sleeping during the day. The best time to handle these little critters is going to be first thing in the morning or later in the afternoon.
Celaneo can be a little bit grumpy if she’s woken up from her naps. But when she’s awake and moving around she’s a pretty friendly hamster and has been easy to handle. She loves food, she loves running on her wheel, and she would love to find her new forever home. If you are interested in meeting Celaneo or any of our other hamsters, guinea pigs, dogs, or cats here at the shelter, please give us a call!”
