I was looking and they were all asleep apart form Tufty he was sat ontop of the water bottle so i thought i would buy him.
Well she was the odd one out.They all were cream&white apart from her she was different to all the others so i picked her.
Plus all the others were climbing on top of her!

Chrissy was standing up in the cage of sleeping hammies. I put my hand in, and she climbed in it. I put her down to check out the others and she followed my hand around just trying to get in. So I summoned the salesclerk and said, "This one is going home with me." That salesclerk's name was Christina and it was two days before Christmas. You guessed it! The little hammie became Chrissy.

Hard to describe, but if you see it you will know!

I only got Dusty from a petstore, while Stripe I got from a breeder, and the rest were accidental litters.
Stripe (and Spot, his brother, but Spot died a few months ago so I got Dusty): Spot's coat was really pretty, a mottled agouti or whatever you call it, with everything else being white. I wanted to get him a companion so he wasn't lonely and I just saw Stripe cuddled up with him...
Dusty: She was pretty active, even thoguh it was about 3 pm, and the others were kind of fattish. So, I got her, thinking she'd be a nice and active pal for Stripe.
Ahaha, as you can see I wasn't really smart (no asking to handle and stuff).

I picked Flapjacks because he was so tiny and cute (like half the size of his siblings)...but which also meant he was the runt and everyone else was picking on him. I honestly saw him take a piece of food, try to eat it, only to have a bigger hamster snatch it away from him! At that point I knew I had to rescue him and fatten him up hehe!

After which. i just put my hand in to see which one will come over to me. There were 2 of them that came over to me. One sniffed my hand and went off....... then Momo came and she climbed on my hand.... At that moment, i looked at her and knew she will be THE ONE!!

I can't remember why I picked Callie and I think I got Jaxon because he was the most adorable, lazy hamster in the place lol.
