    I've had small critters as pets for most of my life. I started with mice at age 12. I've had gerbils, hamsters, and rats throughout my teens. I got a flying squirrel named Scalisti (hence my user name) when I was 18, and he passed away when he was 14 (I was 31 and very sad). Throughout my 20's...

    I just adopted a black bear hamster, at 4 months (around that) of age. His water bottle was one that came with his cage, and I felt it wasn't getting enough water so I bought a super pet 8 oz. clear view water bottle to replace it. I have it angled so he can use most of the metal end of it...

I am deathly afraid of them, anyone who owns one; I will not go near the cage of that hamster and if they take them out to play with...
