Oh my goodness how cute is this little lady, she only has one leg ❤️#Repost @the_pipsqueakery
For those of you wondering about the one-legged wonder, Caterpillar, here she is! She got to try some whipped cream after her ear cleaning last week, and I think she liked it. Well, liked it as much as she likes any treats. She isn't actually very food motivated for a hamster.
For those of you new to The Pipsqueakery I suppose I should give a brief introduction here. The Pipsqueakery is a 501c3 nonprofit rodent rescue and sanctuary located in Bloomington , Indiana. We focus on providing a sanctuary for medically and behaviorally needy rodents. We also take pride jn being a rescue that can handle large volume intakes and the subsequent transfer to a number of other rescues all over the US for adoptions.
This particular girl is named Caterpillar. She only has one leg, but she travelled all the way from Canada to have a place here. She's one of our permanent residents and she will live out her days spoiled rotten by us. She has to have one of her ears cleaned weekly because with no legs on the right side of her body she can't do it herself. It can be a bit of a challenge though because she has tiny ears and a penchant for biting fingers. We love her anyway!
