UPDATE: M&M will be going to her new home soon! Yay!!

This listing is for Mini Me, the baby left from the first litter. I'm not 100% sure of gender, but from my best estimation, Mini Me is a girl. I don't trust myself to say for sure! When she was born, she looked like a tiny version of her dad, Ollie, hence she became Mini Me or M&M. Now, she is a light gray color (the only one out of 6 babies to be gray!). She is a real sweetheart. She is very curious and watches my every move as I work in the kitchen. She loves to be out of the cage and exploring. She is pretty quick, as she isn't full grown yet, but still likes to be held. She would be great for a family with kids calm enough to hold her safely. She was born on September 8th or 9th.

If you need a cage, you are welcome to the one in the picture. It is just a plastic pet store cage.

Background: I never wanted to get any pets in Korea, but a pair of cute little dwarf hamsters were dropped in my lap this summer after my friend found them abandoned on the street in a garbage pile, cage and all. So sad! My friend was leaving soon and already had adopted a puppy, so was unable to keep them. After no one else wanted them, I said I would take care of them. Well, I had 2 happy little hamsters for over 2 months before one day, I came home to quite a surprise - 2 babies! I felt extremely stupid for not realizing that "the fat lazy one" was actually pregnant. I had tried to determine their sex, but frankly, they are just so tiny, it was really difficult and I wrongly assumed that since they were already together in the cage that they must be brothers or something. I immediately put the father in a separate cage upon finding them...however, 16 days days later SURPRISE 4 more hamsters. I feel very guilty about how this situation has played out, but honestly, I don't see how I could have prevented it. I know that hamsters come into heat quite often, and I know there gestation period is very I thought I was in the safe zone after having 2 adult hamsters in a cage together for so long without reproducing. However, what's done is done, and I have managed to find homes for 4 of the babies. I've asked everyone I know, but there are no bites for the last 2 babies, who aren't really even babies anymore. And of course, I still have the parents as that's 4 cages in my tiny apartment. Now I'm going to be leaving in February, and I'm starting to lose hope of finding homes myself.

Please contact me if you have any questions. I can meet anywhere in Seoul pretty easily and I also take fairly frequent trips to Daejeon and Gwangju.

Thanks for looking!
