    Default We went to a hamster show!

    And came home with a new little friend

    All my recent hams have been rescues and all have been very wary of humans and very hand shy aaannnndddd in turn I had lost my confidence with them, I really needed a friendly little chap that was already happy to be handled who could help me build back up to not being scared of such a tiny little thing!

    It was my birthday on Friday and my husband offered to buy me a hammy, I was researching breeders on the northern hamster club website and spotted that there was a show on the Sat less than half an hour from home...

    So meet McCoy! He is almost 7 weeks old now and is a black long haired Syrian he has a little white chest and the white trails down his front legs, a bit like the otter markings on a bun! He is a real sweetie and amazingly confident for a little baby, brilliant for me I'm already much much happier handling him!







    Sorry if the pics are huge! I don't know how to resize on the photobucket app!

    Thank you he is rather stunning!

    I also met his mum (named Dana Scully ) and whilst I did not meet the man who bred him since he was judging the show hams the lady who sold him to me was the lady who bred his mum!

    I was amazed at the hamsters there, they were HUGE I mean bigger than adolescent guinea pig huge!!! Apparently all my previous hams must have been originally pet shop stock... And hams from rodent farms are stunted or something and don't grow as big as they should as McCoy is a boy he won't grow as big as some we saw but still at 7ish weeks he is still clearly a baby and is almost the same size as my last Syrian was full grown!
