I thought that you might like to see some pictures...

Those famous earsies...

(The photo looks a bit pink because I'd pulled the curtains in the hamster room to keep the sun off of the cages)

Captain Jack looking quite grown up...

Aww, it is always such a delight to see your precious hamily! Juno looks so inquisitive and cute on her rainbow fleece shelf. I think the pink glow adds a lovely touch, too. Captain Jack looks so handsome and distinguished. Cora is a darling, being all sweet and cuddly. Awesome photos as always.

Default Re: The Metallica Chronicles

I thought I'd update you on the latest happenings at Metallica...

Firstly, I made the decision to rehome the hamster formerly known as Louise as a pet as she didn't really have what I was looking for in a breeding hamster in terms of colour or type. As sweet as she is, I had always decided that I'd be keeping two of The Cormes on a more permanent basis and her brothers Jack and Alex are closer to where I want to be with my breeding plans. I felt that Louise would make someone a really nice pet so she'll be off to her lovely new home in a couple of weeks time.

Some of you that have been following Metallica Hamstery for a while may know about our struggles with skin splits and by the time she was PTS, Victoria had four. These skin splits also appeared in her son who was part of a litter that had several incidences with unexplained deaths. In fact Victoria outlived four of her children and I don't feel comfortable breeding from Matthew not knowing what is going on with the skin splits or the sudden deaths of his siblings. It's a shame because Matthew has a lovely face and before his skin split, had nice sleek fur that wasn't overly prone to moult lines.

My next planned pairing will be between Charlotte and either Jack or Alex.

James has made improvements since he gave me a scare at the beginning of April. I honestly thought I'd lose both my oldies in one week but some changes to his diet saw improvement. He is now given soft food every day in addition to having Burgess Dwarf available. Unfortunately one of his damaged bottom teeth has now fallen out entirely but since they never grew after the incident occurred, it doesn't seem to have made a huge amount of difference to him. His top teeth grow quickly and need trimming on a weekly basis but he is very accepting of having this done.

To finish off here's some photos:

Lazy Alex likes lots of nice places to sit:

I'm sorry that Louise will be re-homed soon, but I'm sure that she will be much loved and will make the perfect pet at her new home that you found for her. It is a shame that Matthew won't be able to carry on his line as he is such a handsome and sweet ham, but I totally understand the concern about the skin splits and unexplained deaths. Hopefully, Matthew will be with you for a very long time and have no more skin splits. I am sorry to hear that the ever charming James lost his tooth, but I'm glad that he is still doing well and accepting his top teeth trimming without any fuss. He is a real darling, lovable ham; he looks so distinguished and handsome in his pic, bless him. I hope that the pairing with Charlotte and either Jack or Alex goes well, and you will be blessed with a lovely, thriving litter of pups at your hamstery. Alex looks totally chilled in his photo; Charlotte is quite the cuddly, little one and I totally adore her precious paw cling, lol. Juno is so inquisitive and precious with her most endearing ears. I totally love all of your hamily and send them all lots of cuddles from me.

I'm sure it must have been a very difficult to rehome Louise as a pet, but I'm sure she will have a lovely home.

That must have been quite upsetting for you to hear that four of Matthew's siblings went to bridge so young. It's a shame that Matthew won't be a dad but in the circumstances it's completely understandable that you don't want to breed him.

Keeping my fingers crossed that things go well for Charlotte and Jack or Alex

In some ways it's hard to decide who you keep out of a litter when they're all so cute but I know that as a breeder, I've got to stay focused on my aims if I've got any hope of getting anywhere with the show team. My show team have unfortunately not been particularly successful these past few months due to Matthew's skin splits and The Cormes not yet reaching thier potential so I really need to be disciplined with who I am keeping and breeding.

Louise is going to live with a friend of mine though so I'm sure I'll be kept up-to-date on her progress. She will be leaving at the end of the month.

It's lovely that she's going to your friend and you'll be able to keep in touch with how she's getting on
