hamsters have HUGE cheeks!

Holy pile-of-nuts-and-seeds, Batman! Little Chloe was scratching at the bars of her cage, so I opened it up and she did the "feed me" dance at the door. So I gave her a heap of seeds, corn, nuts, crunchies, and so on... did you know that hamster cheeks extend down past their shoulders?

You think I'm exaggerating? I'm not! Wow! She kept stuffing it in as I handed her more, some pieces as big as her head (well, almost). I stopped only because I worried about her getting facial stretch marks, not because she was done stuffing it in (sometimes she had to push with both little hands).

I love my little hamster.
