Kathy’s Kritters is a web site about guinea pigs and hamsters. Kathy, the site owner, has been a hamster owner since 1992 and a guinea pig owner since 2000.
The site has stories of her pet hamsters and guinea pigs as well as photo galleries full of pet pictures organized by each of the lovely animal friends that have been or are currently in her life. Don’t be fooled by the words ‘photo gallery’ though, because they’re also filled with interesting facts about her pets . There’s even a a guide to making a guinea pig house!
My favorite part of Kathy’s Kritters is the Pet Stories. It includes a Baby Hamster Journal which is a day-by-day account of the birth to Day 16 of thirteen baby hamsters. The babies went from tiny jellybean-like shapes to looking like actual furry Syrian hamsters (although not as big).
There’s also Hermione’s Adventure — it is a story written in the perspective of Hermione the hamster who goes exploring after her tunnel got disconnected from her lower house.
Each pet story comes with its own color and theme. It feels like I’m reading a different ‘book’ when I go to each story!
Besides the two stories mentioned above, there are more that you can read. They all come with cute photos and Kathy’s awesome storytelling. If you like reading pet/animal stories, you should definitely visit Kathy’s Kritters.
After reviewing Hammysworld and Kathy’s Kritters, I really feel like adopting a Syrian hamster! I will be going to the SPCA (they have guinea pigs too *ahem*) tomorrow so I might actually return with one >.> Now, I realize we’re called Dwarf Hamster Blog so maybe I should get another dwarf hamster instead…
