I can only imagine how difficult and emotional it must be to have to decide which pups to keep when you love them all so very much, but I think it is absolutely admirable and wonderful that you are giving so many people an opportunity to have magnificent hamsters in their lives. I am sure that your friend is thrilled to soon be getting one of your beloved hamsters. I'm sure that Louise will be very loved, and it is wonderful that you will be able to get updates and pics of her, too. Hugs to you, Fluffagrams.

The hamster formerly known as Louise left Metallica Hamstery on 31st May to go to her new owner. I think she's settling in well though.

In terms of other residents of the hamstery, Alexander has been through a bit of a skittish, nervous spell so I've downgraded his cage in the hope that he'll settle down. I've seen improvements in him already and he no longer wants to go and hide every time I walk in the hamstery. He even begged for seeds yesterday which is an improvement.

James is still doing well despite his advancing age. I can't believe he'll be three in August. Here's a recent photo of my 'Golden Oldie':

At the opposite end of the age spectrum, baby Charlotte is doing well. She's mastered the 'Chinesey Cling' and has learnt how to beg for seeds:

Charlotte's teacher has been little Juno who lives in the adjacent cage. Juno takes her supervising duties very seriously:

Cuteness galore!!! I can't stop smiling and oohing and awing at your amazing hamily's latest pics. I'm glad that Alexander is now less skittish after his recent cage downsizing. Wow, James turning three in August is amazing; he looks to be in such amazing shape and is as handsome as ever! Aww, Charlotte mastering the Chinesey cling is just way too precious for words!!!! Lol, Juno sure is the amazing teacher instructing Charlotte of all the different seed begging tricks. I'm so glad you have her to supervise the distribution of goodies process; I'm sure she is great help, lol. She cracks me up with laughter!

Aww James is such a handsome little man & looking great, I can hardly believe he's almost 3 either!
Charlotte & Juno are both just too cute!
Hope Alexander will continue to gain confidence now.

That is a lovely photo of James, as handsome as ever. That chinesey cling by baby Charlotte is super cute and super super cute in real life. She is such a tiny cutie!
They are all such a gorgeous crew, Fluffagrams.

Such beautiful photos of beautiful hammies. James is a lovely old man. I love Charlotte - Juno's face has stolen my heart though! And such a great photo of the Chinesey cling!

I think it's about time for an update... some of you who follow any of Metallica's social media channels may already know some of this but just in case you missed it.

Lord James is doing well and other than a few moult lines, he's looking remarkably good for his almost three years. He'll celebrate his third birthday next Saturday so I'm trying to think of what I'd like to do to make it special for him.

Juno has been a busy little girl building lost of tunnels and supervising Charlotte. She's still as tiny as she's always been but I don't think that's going to change now.

Cora has unfortunately developed diabetes. At the moment she is well in herself and her urine is free from ketones but I'm keeping an eye on her. I was giving her Burgess Dwarf after I found out about her diabetes, much to her disgust so she was quite pleased when I had to throw it away.

After placing well at Andover, I have decided that for now Jack will take on the Show Team Lead position that was recently left vacant due to Matthew's death. Due to their mother's diabetes, I will delay pairing Jack and Alex so that I can be sure that it's not likely to crop up again on that line.

Alex is unfortunately been through a crisis in confidence which is why I couldn't show him at Andover in June. I downgraded his cage to see if that settled him and it did but when I thought I'd try him in a larger cage again, he returned to his nervous and skittish ways and I've had to downgrade him again. He's usually a lazy but cuddly little boy.

Charlotte is now living in one of the cages I usually use for my adult Chinese and she seems perfectly happy doing her digging and burying things. She reminds me a lot of Victoria in her younger days.

There are also two new arrivals at Metallica...

Meet Lilliput's Benjamin F. Pierce at Metallica (Dominant Spot) and Lilliput's The Knight Bachelor Lucas Matthew of Metallica (Normal). Benjamin arrived last week at Bath and is some rather distant relation of Charlotte. Lucas arrived today and shares ancestors with Victoria and Matthew. Both boys will be joining the show team and Juno will be retired.

Here's a bonus one of Show Team Lead Jack taking his new role in his rather laid back fashion...

That’s great that Lord James is doing good and happy almost birthday! Maybe you can spoil him with his favorite treats? I’m sorry to hear about Cora and her diabetes. Congratulations with Jack! I’m sorry to hear about Alex. Congratulations on Benjamin and Lucas, they are both so handsome!
