Got a new hamster, I'm pleased to introduce you to Admiral Sticky Buns!!

I have a Chinese hamster already, and this girl is SO different! I've had her since last Thursday and she's already used to my boyfriend and I. She hasn't bit us once!

We were at Petco just for fun, and saw her getting pulverized by another larger hamster... I've wanted a new Syrian ham for a while and the BF always says no.... until last Thursday!


Here she is! Admiral Sticky Buns!!!!








She was a fan of the BF's pocket!

Wow she tamed up fast. I got baby rats last tuesday and they still are not that tame yet. I can pet them put the second I remove them they start freaking out on me. She's so cute and look at her nomming treats in your lap. What a catch, I bet she will be super lovable in no time.

I seem to have good luck!

My first ham, Ralph was an adoption at that same Petco. Some kid had left him there because he didn't want him anymore.. I saw him getting bullied (see a trend?) and had to save him... He was a sweetheart. When he died, I got Victini, my Chinese ham, and she has NEVER bit us either! She's quiet and never comes out or begs for love like Ralph did... But she's very calm and comfortable with us holding her.

And Sticky buns is the same way! I got her at the same Petco.. and she had just come in that day (so you would expect her to be super stressed)... she's just so calm! Her first night with us she was running in her wheel like she owned the place. She's curious and is jumpy at times but hasn't thought to bite us.. the second night I had her I put a clean dry washcloth we had slept with the night before in her tank so she could get used to our scent, maybe that helped?

Either way I love her!

Such a cute golden girl! I love my sable banded Syrian boy. His name is Max Rat, but we usually just call him Mr. Rat. He's a big fan of pockets, too!

I might just do the washcloth trick and put them in the two baby houses. I know now they will take food from me and lick my hands and climb on me a little but still the second they leave the cage they run away and hide from me. Since they are babies I wonder if they are just more cautious because they don't have the life experience as an adult animal.

Cute hammy. Gotta love the name too :)

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.
