Frankie — Petraits Rescue
today at 8:45 am
Frankie is a three-week-old, sweet and wiggly but very handle-able Syrian hamster baby looking for a loving guardian, as are his seven siblings.
His mom was turned into Chicago Animal Care and Control after someone had an accidental litter, but the siblings weren’t separated early enough and all the females in the litter were pregnant.
This time, they were separated at three weeks; no more accidental births.
Frankie loves attention from his people.
He loves exploring his surroundings, munching and filling his cheeks with food, and spinning on his wheel or flying saucer. Syrian hamsters live alone in their habitats so it’s important to give daily attention and love.
He is fun to hold, wiggly, but very gentle. He loves running in and out of his castle and even sleeps in his toys, or in a mound of bedding. 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 or flying saucer, hidey hut and water bottle – everything you need including the hamster – the whole package is available for $70.

Frankie is being fostered in Chicago’s Andersonville neighborhood.
