Clean rodent with no visible tail. Strictly vegetarian. Comes in large variety of colors and hair styles. Sheds hair at a fast rate. Like humans, it cannot produce its own vitamin C, so must take it in it's diet. Lives 3-8 years. Usually very friendly and affectionate. Makes a wide range of noses, from squeaking, purring, chirping and chattering. Their mind control powers are pure fiction. Really.
What are you squeaking about, Kiki? I already feed you earl... MUST OBEY THE PIG. YOUR WISH IS MY COMMAND, EMPRESS KIKI.
An extra planar being failing to mimic the far superior Guinea Pigs. Their mind powers fall short of the greater cavy, and they often go into a rage when they fail at their prime task of mind controlling humans. Beware their bite, as they sometimes will not release until death. Hamsters will only die if there is a possibility it would inconvenience a human.
If you fear for your life from a Hamster, seek out the shelter of the superior and more benevolent Guinea Pig.
