So I have the baddest hamster ever. I do not know what it is about my animals that make them so awesome, but they are.
Fred, a gift to me from Kyle last year for my birthday, is just a bada**. He makes Chuck Norris look like a wimp.
Earlier this year, I got him two brothers to play with. Funny thing is, hamsters do not want brothers to play with. They fight with them. A lot!
Of course none of the fights have ever been bad; until this last one of course.
Sometime between Sunday and Monday, Fred got his butt handed to him on a silver platter.
Kyle woke me up on Tuesday morning because Fred was injured. It looked like the skin around his eye had been sliced open. I think one of his brothers shanked him.
So, while I was at work, Kyle took him to the vet. Come to find out, Fred has a huge hole in his head. An actual hole. It is so gross. His eye is cut. His nose is damaged. He's pretty messed up.
However, do you think that slows down my Fred?
Not in the least. He just keeps going and going.
The little guy is now on antibiotics. On top of that, he has a cream we have to put on his head until it heals. The vet said it will get worse before it gets better. I cannot imagine it looking worse than it does now, so I'm scared of how it will end up looking. He may be bad, but his Daddy still get queasy at the site of stuff like that.
However, with all that is going on, he is the most active hamster. He is still eating and drinking. He runs around his cage like a maniac. Last night he was even moving things in his new single residency habitat.
After watching him, I have decided that Fred is Hardcore. He is the kind of hamster that would cut you just for the shear thrill of doing it.
So, as you can see, I have the baddest hamster around. Be jealous. He could beat up your honor roll student.
