Adonis — Petraits Rescue
today at 10:34 am
Adonis is a five-week-old, wiggly, handleable and fun long-haired golden hamster baby looking for a loving guardian.
Adonis is learning to appreciate attention from his people, lots of different foods and treats including unsalted peanuts, broccoli and tofu, spinning on his wheel and exploring his surroundings.
Golden hamsters live alone in their habitats so it’s important to give daily attention and love.
In captivity, these golden hamsters can run two to five miles in a 24-hour period, and they can store up to one ton of food in their cheeks in a lifetime. It’s fun to watch them hoard food.
Since this is a baby, he will need patient daily handling and socialization so he is not afraid of humans.
His adoption fee of $15 benefits the Friends of Petraits Rescue. If you need an entire hamster habitat, 20 gallon long aquarium with lid, paper bedding, food, exercise wheel, hidey castle and water bottle – everything you need including the hamster – the whole package is available for $75.

Adonis is being fostered in Chicago’s Andersonville neighborhood.
