There was a bit of a breakthrough with Croûton after I got her a piece of bamboo root. I knew from Happy Hamsters that hamsters like (and need) really cluttered enclosures but it's only over time that I've figured out how to fit more stuff into it. I also had to upgrade her wooden house … Continue reading Croûton Breakthrough
Kwouton Is Too Cute 🐹
She Let Me Stroke Her 😭
Croûton let me stroke her a bit! —on three occasions now. I did in the end have to buy some metal moulding strips and glue them to the chewable edges around the bottom of the enclosure to stop her chewing, which made her depressed again for a day, but it's solved the problem! I think … Continue reading She Let Me Stroke Her 😭
Crouton/Etta Adoption Day
I'm adopting little Etta on Sunday at 12pm 😄😄😄, at which point she will become known as Crouton. I've had this name lined up since December and in fact the name was so compelling to my friend that it became a prime justification for getting a hamster in the first place 😂. 🌪
Hamster Food Collection
Pet care in 2023 isn't easy lol. Here's my total collection of hamster food: The pink packages contain flax seed sprays which Etta especially prefers apparently. The basic premise behind hamster care when it comes to enclosures and food seems to just be does it appeal to you personally (and it’s safe)? Hamsters have a … Continue reading Hamster Food Collection
Happy Hamsters Feedback
Happy Hamsters finally gave me feedback and apologised for the delay! Was weird as they were replying very quickly before but then it was most of 2 days for this final hurdle. Anyway I just need to get some vegetable/flower/herb forage mix from a pet shop, which they love and it helps encourage them to … Continue reading Happy Hamsters Feedback
Hamster Enclosure Complete!
I've finally put it all together! And made a custom platform/ladder combination with wood from the unused shelves which came with the enclosure. It's all fitted together really satisfyingly. The metal thing dangling from the lid is for putting fresh vegetable chunks on, it's a fun way for them to get it :). I'm just … Continue reading Hamster Enclosure Complete!
If you live in the UK could you please sign this petition to improve small animal enclosure standards, and try to share with 1 or 2 people? That's all that's required on average for exponential growth! Bacteria know it. I'm aware of the common skepticism around petitions! My view is that they do no harm … Continue reading Hamster Enclosures
Emotional Support Amster
I can't hold back any longer, I'm committed to getting an emotional support hamster! I've been more functional in the last week and finally after 6 months of living here I've been able to start organising and tidying things properly, selling some things I don't need on ebay and throwing away or donating other things. … Continue reading Emotional Support Amster
One of my goals is to eventually get a rescue 'amster. I need to make a lot of progress first with OCD and for my finances to be stable again after the therapy, and to research how to look after them and get the stuff. But look at how cute they are, even cuter than … Continue reading Rescue Amsters
