Circus Hamster

Our crazy hamster....Oreo. During the night time we take out the wheel in Oreo's cage. Jack is a light sleeper and even with the hamster in a different room Jack would still wake up to the sound of the wheel. I can still hear Oreo crawling around in his cage but never really knew what he was doing, just scratching around I figured. The other night I was up late editing images on the computer. I walked into the kitchen and turned on the light and Oreo was upside down hanging from the top of his cage. I couldn't believe my eyes, then he did the monkey bars all the way across the top of the cage. I grabbed my camera for some shots of this circus hamster.
He don't need no stinkin' wheel, he runs circles without the wheel. In the obligation of full disclosure, Oreo was more interested in my camera and me than his gymnastics, so to entice him to show his antics I put a little cracker on the roof of his cage to give him a reason to get back to business.

The first 2 pics are of Oreo just climbing up the side of his cage, then he takes off with the monkey bar skills.

Here is Oreo checking out his reflection in my camera.

He did this stuff nonstop when we were sleeping in the living room. Then around 6:30am he stopped and was perfectly quiet the rest of the morning! : )
