Imagine walking on your neighborhood street and then suddenly seeing a hamster running around in his exercise ball next to you.
That’s what happened to a six-year-old boy when he was riding his bike outside. He saw the rolling hamster headed straight for him in his exercise ball.
The boy and his family have taken the hamster into their home, but they have put up signs in the neighborhood looking for the owner.
The family hopes to keep their new pet.
The boy’s father said: “Alexander [the boy] was delighted to have found the hamster. He came in saying: ‘Dad look I found a hamster’. I couldn’t believe it.
“They are all hoping we can keep it but I have told them that it may be another child’s pet so not to get their hopes up.”
The family has bought a cage for him and have enjoyed taking caring of him, so for now the hamster has found a good home. The father suspects that the hamster did not escape but instead someone let him out on the street.
We’re glad that you found a new loving home, Mr. Hamster. Remember no more running out in the street.
