How did you pick your hamster out?
Posted 19 November 2011 - 08:20 AM
It all started after my Hamster Freddy died, I had to get another hamster, I just can't live without them. So I had ask my mom if I could get another, and she said yes, So My dad and mom drove me to PetSmart and I went straight to the hamster section and look hoping they had syrians, and I saw him, he was awake playing around in the small glass tank he came up to the glass and put his paws up and stared at me and thats when I knew he was the one and PetSmart employee came and took him out, he had a brother that was sleeping in the igloo he looked dead to me. She asked me want one do you want and I pointed to the one awake, so I tok him home and Named him Pumpkin!

Then when I was wandering the markets one day I saw a horrible little pet shop and Mei was tiny, she wasn't getting any food or water and she was being badly bullied by her litter mates, and when I pointed it out to the owner he just went "She'll either learn to defend herself or die then won't she". So I er, 'liberated' her and then reported them.
Then there was Cocoa, who was sweet and I thought she was a pretty colour, so I brought her home.
And the Leonard who I'm 'fostering' While he had a poorly eye but to be honest I have fallen in love and I think I'll keep him since he's happy here

I asked her where she got him and she said she also got him from Craigslist from someone who had him for 1 year but she said she did not believe that because he was too small for a adult Syrian. lol
She kept him for a few months before deciding she wanted to focus on her rats. She even admitted to me that she let him "play" lose in the front yard where once he ran into the road and had to dodge cars for 2 hours.
Obviously I had to take him! He is quite the grouch and hates being held but I love him.
Next time I get a hamster I will adopt again.

I picked Mercedes because she was like a tiny ball of fluff and so gorgeous, she was long haired and I just fell in love straight away.
I picked Pepper because she was the last hammy left and I'd never had a black hamster before so I just had to have her.
Finally I picked Star and Luna online from a breeder as they were what I was specifically looking for
Soon I'm going to be adopting another hamster from RSPCA

For Tweek and Bloo, I was at Pet-Co and I wanted a dwarf, and preferably a winter white. When I saw Bloo sleeping in the hide and see TV in the glass cage. He was adorable!!!There were three hamsters in the cage, 2 pearls and an Agouti. I chose Tweek and Bloo because Bloo was adorable, and I did NOT want the other pearl. The other pearl was bigger, and he had bug eyes, which I personally did not like, and he looked sick (like you look at him and he doesn't show symptoms, but you just feel like he's sick) So then the lady came and put a pearl in a box, but she put Bugeyes in there and so I made her put him back in. She emptied the hide and see TV into a box and closed it up. Then she moved the igloo, and scooped up Tweek. We then took them home and put them in the cage. Bloo is definately nicer, and Tweek (as his name is implied ((from south park)) is shy and a little timid and skittish. Bloo() tries his very best to get in my hand when it is in the cage, and Tweek(Agouti) pees when he is scared...

There's only one store I could find that sold Syrians so I called 2 times making sure they had them in before we went. Once we got there the manager said they were not being sold until the next day because they just got them in. Once we told him we were told twice they were being sold today and he said we could have one *only* if we got wet tail drops with it. When we walked up to the cage one of them came out looked at us and promptly went to the food bowl, curled up, and went to sleep. The manager stuck his hand under the pile of hamsters in the corner and lifted up to wake them up and spread them out. Most of them was super tiny and one definitively had wet tail that I could see. I quickly said I wanted to hold the one in the food bowl because I didn't want one that had been cuddling with the sick hamster and he lifted her up. She was a giant compared to the other ones and had caramel colored streaks in black hair. He handed her to me and she just sat there sniffing the air and my hand, not even attempting to bite. I chose her immediately and took her home. She proved to be a sweet heart and a trouble maker. I still wonder if that poor sick hamster at the store is alright though.
Sorry this was so long
