Alfie — Petraits Rescue
today at 8:01 am
Alfie is a four-week-old, wiggly, handleable and fun Golden hamster baby looking for a loving guardian.
Born on January 28th, Alfie is learning to appreciate attention from his people, lots of different foods and treats, spinning on his wheel and exploring his surroundings.
Golden hamsters must 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 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, aquarium, bedding, food, treats, toys, exercise wheel, hidey hut and water bottle – everything you need including the hamster – the whole package is available for $75.

Alfie is being fostered in Chicago’s Andersonville neighborhood.
