I had a couple when I was young. Treated them like any other rodent I had.
I liked it when they stood on their hindquarters. A mini prairie dog!

I had one that just loved the cardboard tube from paper towels. I stick him
head first into the bottom and climb to the top. Then I'd hold the base like a candle and he'd go to town gnawing on it until it was no more. Of course it left a fine mess in my lap!
