Every so often, we all need to take a little break and just check out of reality for a while. With so much going on in the world these days, it can be really nice to have any excuse to sit back, watch something cute, and just exist for at least 42 seconds.
Enter Rosie the pet hamster, an adorable little creature who has a thing for snacks.
When it comes to pet hamsters, Rosie is pretty fancy. She has her own foodie account on Instagram, and her followers delight in finding out what rodent-friendly snack Rosie is going to try next.
In a video shot on October 1, Rosie is seen happily munching away on an assortment of hamster snacks while seated in the palms of her owner’s hands. It turns out that hamsters can actually eat quite a varied diet!
While most of their meals should definitely consist of high-quality hamster food from a pet shop, they can definitely nibble on pieces of apples, bananas, blueberries, broccoli, carrots, cauliflower, cucumber, grapes, kale, peas, cooked potato, spinach, strawberries, sweet potato, and squash.
Hamsters are also low-key pets, which makes them ideal for families who have older kids. Because hamsters are sometimes skittish and can bite, they probably aren’t the best pet if you have very young children at home.
