Announcing the launch of Hamster Tails, a series of real life hamster adoption stories that will tug at your heartstrings :heartbeat:

Posted Image

We hope that this series will inspire more hamster owners to consider the option of adopting in future, as compared to buying or breeding your hamsters.

The first story is contributed by Ospray, please give your support!

There are many more stories coming really soon, do check back regularly.

If you have an adoption story to submit, you can write in to hamstertails (at) hamsterhideout [dot] com, or you may either pm the HH writers, namely either dusty, HoppingHammy or wiffy (me).

Special thanks to HoppingHammy who worked really hard on it - she took the awesome hamster butt photos of her hamsters for the Hamster Tails logo, wrote some stories as well as editing the main write up :hug: :star:

What a great idea, and Ospray wrote such a sweet story!
And I already told you this HH, but you did a fantastic job on the photo of them all! Creampuff looks so big compared to small little Cream Brulee :cutie:

Ohhh! Here comes another great addition to the already great HH website! :propeller:
I'm glad you guys (I mean HH staff) are promoting adoption! Too many websites and book consider petshops the only way to get a hamster, most of them have even a section called "Purchase" (wich is a horribly wrong word to use for a living thing IMHO) that almost always starts with the words "when you go to a petshop to choose your hamster and blah blah..." And so may people I've heard saying "I didn't know hamsters could be adopted"!
So it's a great thing that you're showing people this possibility and I hope always more people will follow this route! :party:

Oh great idea Wiffy! I have a story, but I will also need lelly to help me write it up, as she rescued the hammies, then I adopted :laughing: But I think she's on holiday at the moment, but hopefully I will write up a story soon!

What cute hamster butts! And since we are on the subject I'll post one of Peaches! ;D

Hey Wiffy! I am a new member but a couple months ago I adopted a dwarf hamster. I know she wouln't be the kindest hamster but she is still my little furball! Her name is Sprinkles. I knew adopting her would give her a chance to feel "loved!" So I know how great it feels to adopt a hamster! :rainbow: Go Adoption!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
