Since I'm a first time hamster owner, I don't know whether or not I'm
allergic to hamsters. Well, I think I may have just found out. I've had my
hamster since December 26, 2007 and haven't had any problems................
until now, maybe. My hamster, Oreo has finally gotten used to me, so I've
been holding him more and more. Well, just this morning I woke up with a bit
of a sore throat and since I know I don't get sick that easily, I assumed it
was just allergies. (Plus I haven't been around any one who's been sick
lately.) But then I realized that this was the first time I'd ever had a
hamster so I thought I might be alergic to him. Oh, somebody please help me!
I can't be alergic to Oreo because then when it comes time to get a new
hamster, I might not be able to get one if I'm alergic! PLEASE HELP ME! :(
P.S. I know Oreo likes me now because 2 days ago, I was watching Oreo come
down from where he sleeps and when he got out of the tube, he jumped out of
the cage and landed right on my arm. Then he went up to my finger and began
nibbling it affectionally! LOL talk about wierd.
