Talking You will never see another pet like Dr. John Watson.

I told myself I would never own another hamster as long as I lived after my 2 dwarfs passed away 2 years ago. The apartment got lonely and I decided in July of last year that I wanted another. This is Watson. He looks fat, but he is all fluff (he's so patient he actually lets me take a comb to him every single day to get his fur brushed out). I'm a professional photographer (no, I'm not just saying that, I have a degree in it and it's how I pay for life) and am CONSTANTLY up in his face. He has got to be the most patient animal in the world. He will let me wake him up from a nap to take a million photos of him and he poses like so, but only for a split second each, so I have to catch them while I can.

Cutest hamster on the PLANET.

(I know it's a really huge photo. I didn't downsize it when I downloaded it)

Thanks! A lot of people have said that about not liking hamsters and then they meet him.

I felt that way about my first rat. Everyone actually thought he was an oversized hamster and wouldn't always take my word for it that he was a rat. He was just so smart. I would let him out and when I said, "STOP" he would literally freeze where he was at so I could pick him up and put him back in his cage. Then I got two more and they just didn't measure up. You gotta love the ones that capture our hearts! Ahhh... furry critters!

CUTE PICTURE!

I'm glad you didn't down size the picture. It's a great photo and I read how he will actually pose. The picture definitely proves that. He is adorable and sounds like a wonderful and unique pet.

He is hysterical and you're definitely right, he's unique. He's just got his own little personality. I just ordered an 11x14 faux canvas from Walmart. Here are other examples of him posing for me:
