You know that empty cage I had laying around after the baby tragedy? You know I said I was going to get one last hamster to fill it as a tribute?
Wellllllllll, I am ecstatic to introduce the newest member of the family to all my wonderful readers.
He is approximately 8 weeks old and pure white! There is not a fleck of another colour on his body – he is pure snow!
He needs to be the new face of some kind of toilet paper I swear he is so unbelievably soft too!
Now I know I said about getting a rescue hamster or an abandoned ham of some kind well after a week of searching high and low everywhere within a 20 mile radius of my home, I was still coming up with nothing and I was beginning to get impatient – a character flaw I apologise. So I made a few phone calls to the local pet stores to see if they had any syrians for adoption or any that just weren’t selling.
On my third phone call, a Pets at Home, not my local one, had a little boy hamster they were keeping out back for some reason. They said if I wanted to go and have a look at him, I was welcome to. So off I went and eventually ended up at the store.
They brought him out from the depths of the ‘out back’ and I squealed so loud in the shop assistants face, I startled both the hamster and the poor guy holding him! This hamster was BEAUTIFUL!
From that millisecond on, I knew my little hamster family was complete. Casper was mine.
And here we are! I dont regret my decision, Casper is a stunning hamster and has already been made to feel at home with me instead of in a box out the back of a pet store!!
I am quiet happy now with my lil brood. No more hamsters for the time being, I have my hands full now! And noone needs to worry that having three means they wont get much attention. I can assure you, I annoy these hamsters with how much I play with them! They each must get well over an hour a day of play time! (I hold them and multitask or just let them run about on my bed or in their ball – its a perfect balance)
I can proudly admit crazy cat ladies have nothing on me. My wee collection of hamsters has grown VERY quickly. I know I wont be getting any more anytime soon, I have no room for them :P, but thats no the point. I am very much in LOVE with my furry babies! They are so cute and playful and I wouldn’t want to go without them!
Why do hamsters have such addictive little personalities?!
So what do you guys think of Casper?
Do you like his white fur coat?
