So on friday the 13th i got an adorable new family member who is a male chinese dwarf hamster. I've nick-named him tiny since i didn't want his name to be hammy so i am waiting until i can think of a good name for the little guy. I've never heard of that type of hamster until friday when i got him(don't worry i went on the computer to print everything there was to know about the chinese dwarf hamster) so now i know everything to take care of the little fellow. Well so far he's been a great little guy and he loves to be held and apparently these types of hamsters are easy to handle and aren't as easily stressed out as the other types of hamsters. I am also glad to say that i did get him at a petstore but they were all males in the cages and no females in sight which is a first for the petstore we got him from.

Also needing help on a name for my little guy and idea's would be greatly appreciated since it's been quite awhile since i have had a hamster.

Aww congrats I have 2 chinese hammies the normal and dom spot. Like any dwarf hammy do not give them too much sweet things as they can get diabetes. Chinese hamsters do love being held and cling on to you. They do not like balls. They might like mine do one of those crittertrail type things that they can run round both mine like it. They love their wheels.

Thanks he is a great little addition to the family. I hold him everyday a couple times a day so that he will get use to me and yeah he loves just hanging up side down on my hands but i always make sure that he's safe and doesn't fall. I've got a cage that he's got a slide to go up and down and hang off of and he absolutely loves it and he's on his wheel 24/7. I am waiting for a little while to transfer him to probably a 20 gallon aquarium so i can make it more fun for him so that he will have stuff to climb and hang up side down on. Im not really sure if he's the normal chinese hammie or not he's all brown with a dark stripe down his back and has a white under belly. This is the first time i've seen let alone own a chinese dwarf hamster since the pet store i got him from never had them before but im glad i got him he's such a little cuddle bug.
