Justin Bieber has a new pet and it's an adorable little hamster that he's named Pac. Like Tupac the rapper? Perhaps! It wouldn't be the strangest thing in the world.

The Biebs shared a photo of his furry new friend, nestled in his hand, via Twitter, tweeting: "Me and #pac on the road." We were a wee bit distracted from Pac's cuteness thanks to that chunky bracelet the singer is wearing. Check that thing out. That's some hardware.

He tweeted another image of him and pal Alfredo Flores, where he was also cradling his pudgy pal in his hand. He captioned it: "Chillin with @alfredoflores and #pacthehamster."

Looks like Pac is well on his way to becoming a trending topic and an A-list celeb, too.

Bieber is showing his affinity for creatures lately. He just got a new tattoo of an owl on his arm, and he also toted a snake named Johnson -- ahem! -- to the 2011 VMAs, which was later auctioned to a good home for charity.

Isn't Pac the cutest thing, like, ever? We totally want to nuzzle up to him. We just hope Bieber is extra careful while on the road on the Believe tour with Pac in tow. He's a tiny fella and could get lost easily.
