I think I have trained Papa well.
Kumanoko has a problem with his teeth. He only had two: one in the top and one in the bottom of his mouth. The top one wasn't growing straight and he had to visit the doctor every month to clip it. Because of that problem he has had surgery to remove it. His Mama says that he's recovering now.
Please visit his website and leave him a comment telling him to get well soon!

(I wonder if he has a girlfriend already...)
Nana told me a few tricks. She told me to gnaw the bars in the door of my cage whenever I want to play outside. The louder the better. I decided to try it. As soon as Papa put Nana back in her cage I climbed the bars of my cage and started gnawing the door. It took me a few tries after I learnt how to make the noise loud enough, but after a while Papa realized that I wanted to go out and opened my door. He put his hand outside my cage and waited. I climbed on his palm like Nana told me to do and he cuddled me for a while, but I didn't want cuddles. I wanted to explore. I climbed down from his hand and he let me play around my cage. I was very interested in the spot where Nana was sitting before.
After a few minutes Papa took me in his hands and put me back in my cage. I washed my face and I went to run in my wheel.
Nana told me that the room floor is a very interesting place. I hope Papa lets me play there the next time!
I was investigating around this cage when a small grey ball of fur moved and came to the corner where I was. It was a small girl. Papa told me that her name is Luna and introduced us. She sniffed me through the bars and I sniffed her. She's ALMOST as cute as I am. But it looks like she's shy, because she went back to hide inside her nest. I wanted to play with her, but Papa put me again in my cage.
Tomorrow I will climb here again and see if I can play with her!
I have also noticed that when Papa holds me sometimes his hands smell like a hamster (not me), but he's not a hamster! Maybe he's turning into one of us, I don't know.
But the weirdest thing is that sometimes at night I hear the noise of a wheel running, but that happens also when I'm not running on mine.
What could be going on here?
Papa put our profiles and photos there so you can register and add us to your hamster friend list.
These are our profiles:

It turned out that the big hand belongs to a guy called Papa. He's big and doesn't have fur, so I don't think he's a hamster like me. I was afraid of him at the beginning, but now I like to climb on his hand because he lets me play outside of my cage and gives me treats.
Papa says that my name means "Moon" in Spanish, and that he chose this name for me because my fur is silver gray. I don't know what that means nor what those "Moon" or "Spanish" things are, but I don't care much, as long as he gives me treats and plays with me.
Sometimes I can hear noises even when I'm not biting the bars of my cage, and there's an interesting smell on this room. I think I'm not the only girl around here.
