Maybe a new addition?

So September 7th...I may be getting a "black bear" hamster.
I have always wanted a black syrian...but could never get one.
Well there is a lady near by with a litter that will be ready to go on the 7th.


I put my name on the waiting list for a male.
After JJ...I didn't plan on getting anymore hamsters,but I really want a black one,so yeah! If all goes to plan,I should have one next month!


It is exciting and I am getting the cage and everything ready now.
I wasn't going to post till I actually had him,but I couldn't wait!

Will you get a boy or girl? Boys are less stinky, you probably know

I would prefer a male.


I heard that females are smelly...but I don't think I ever had a female hamster.I had a bunch of hamsters as a kid,but I cannot remember what they were like.
My first hamster as an adult was JJ (R.I.P)...I got him when I was 22 yrs old.And because he was my first ham as an adult,he holds a special place in my heart.He was really friendly.I got him as a baby too.


I will be sure to post pics when I get the little guy!

Can't wait. I have only had one hamster too and in 6th grade I helped to take care of a hamster. But the boys are actually less stinky because the females have a chemical in their pee that stinks more! I have also heard that they are more relaxed.

I've been entertaining the idea of maybe getting another hammy for a while now. I hope you can get one! They are fun if they are nice and don't bite. It's good that you will get a young one.

Yup...since I am getting it young,I should not have problems taming it and maybe having another sweet hamster...JJ was a real sweetie for a hamster!
Are you going to get one? Or still just thinking on it?

Oh I have been thinking about it for about a year, haha! I am in a mode of "no more pets for the time being". But I probably will get another someday.

Yay! Congrats!

I had a black teddy bear hamster named Big Ben, we took him in as a rescue from the animal shelter I worked at. He was so sweet! And I loved him because he was bigger than most hamsters, so more squishiness to love

I was supposed to pick up the hammy today...but the lady didn't call me and I wasn't sure if I should just show up.She told me to go over 7pm tonight and gave me her address and I didn't hear back...so I wasn't sure.


We'll see in the next few days.
I sent her another email.
