Hey guys, so I opened my front door just now and saw this:
I am guessing this is a hamster? I don't have any experience with these. I put out water just now, but I have no idea how long it has been out there. It is 11pm and we are in the process of moving and going to Japan, so I can't take it in and care for it. I was thinking in the morning I could take it to a pet store or something, and ask around my neighborhood beforehand to see if it belongs to anyone that might have lost it. It is just roaming around my front door, probably because it is raining right now and there is cover.
Does anyone have experience with hamsters? It is a hamster, right, and not a gerbil? :P There aren't wild hamsters roaming around in Texas are there?
I wanted to ask here as I don't have the time to do thorough research right now on hamsters/gerbils. Surely there is someone here who has experience with them that can give quick advice.
