i was just wandering what you call a hamster baby. eg pup or hamplet?
my hamster has never had babys and im pretty sure she never will. but its just interesting to find out what other hamster owners call baby hamsters.
all baby animals have names eg cat-kitten, dog-puppy.

pup, hamsterlet, hamplet..........?

They are most often called Pups, though many like to call them different names through their stages.

New Borns - Pinkies
Mid Borns - Fuzzies

And then comes adults.
