Justin Bieber’s North American tour isn’t the only reason he has his hands full these days. The singer has a new tour buddy that fits in his palm.
Bieber introduced his new friend, a hamster named Pac, on Oct. 20, and has had fun sharing photos of the tiny rodent ever since.
“This is PAC the hamster my new believe tour pet I will bring him to every meet n greet,” he Tweeted with a photo of his furry friend in a cage.
“Me and #pac on the road,” he wrote.
