About Me

Hi there! My name is Mike and I am finishing up my Bachelor's Degree in French at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. In addition to being a student, I work in a call center for a family of e-commerce web-sites and as a tour guide for a haunted history tour in Milwaukee's Third Ward.


Over the years I have raised a number of dwarf hamsters. My first 3 dwarf hamsters were Campbell's Russian Dwarf Hamsters (Phodopus campbelli). I always had my eye on Roborovskis, but they were not readily available in the United States at the time. That has began to change recently as they have started to appear at the large chains such as PetCo and PetSmart. I would rather not purchase animals from these stores, but if I wanted a Roborovski, I had to start somewhere.  I purchased my first Roborovski, Albus, on December 23rd, 2010.

A side note about me is that I can be a little abrupt in my posts and responses.  I only want the best for our little friends and can get pretty excited (that's a nice way of putting it) when I see something that concerns me.  Just know that I'm actually a really nice guy!

Hey, Mike! I was looking at your blog and found that it is actually pretty nice - it's neat and the style is professional. I can see that you put some stuff that you learned from this site, and I'm glad that you took a chance and changed Albus' food. Hazel Hamster was a great hamster muesli, and the only reason I switched from it was because my little Niche was a picky eater. In fact, I kept on switching foods from him throughout his whole life!

Anyways, I hope all is going well with you at school, as my siblings are/have gone through college as well (not the some major, obviously). :)
