First hamster: Pearl. Lived being called "she" for about 5/6 of his life only to be found to be male when visiting the vet for mites! Sweet, sweet, kind soul who was a Christmas present when I was 8.
Second hamster: Biscuit. Male Syrian who was a lively lad despite being the only hamster in the cage asleep in the hamster section at PAH, where he came from.
Ice - female winter white from RSPCA blackberry farm. Mad, aggressive little monster with more bite in her tiny body than an angry caucasian ovcharka.
Chip. Gentle, introverted, fast little man; a stereotypical roborovski, he came from RSPCA Blackberry Farm at the same time as Ice.
Cinnamon, the world's gentlest hamster, a massive male agouti from a little local petshop originally bought as school science hamster (and cared for by myself) but retired to me when the stress of school life began to take its toll on him. The gentlest hamster I have ever owned, you could pick him up whilst he was asleep - and have him stay like that, dozing in the palm of your hand.
Prince, (full name Prince Snow), brought home from Pampurred pets after I saw a "mutant hamster" who was so huge it was joked that maybe it was half guinea pig. Not much of a one for cuddles - he'd obviously learned from the Chip School of How to Live Your Hamster Life - but liked to run around by room whilst I cleaned everyone out, and was a great listener; one of best "furapy" animals I have ever owned!
And the current gang:
Princess Jane, brought home from PAH after I fell in love - with her quirky name! Probably a close contender for 'tamest hamster I've ever owned' alongside Cinnamon.
Little old Jane by be being joined by a cream banded female Syrian I saw in Pampurred pets if she's still there on Monday but don't hold out your hopes....
Just wanting the world to see my beautiful furbabies (past and present); a little while ago I stumbled on the photos of Pearl quite by accident, having
believed for years that I didn't have a single picture of him. I've been wanting to share them for a while but it didn't seem fair to do so without also putting up images of my other hamsters. :)
Proud owner of 2 chinchillas and a dwarf hamster

If I'm not active I have probably forgotten my password (again)....
