Default The Metallica Chronicles

Since the individual threads have lost their images when Photobucket went down and with the hamstery consisting of more hamsters than before, I thought I'd combine all the latest news from Metallica Hamstery in one place and what better place to start than with a photo of Matthew, one of the first hamsters to be born at Metallica Hamstery:

Untitled by Metallica Hamstery, on Flickr

Matthew, along with his mother Victoria has had a very busy weekend and travelled with me on the train to go and stay with Vectis in preparation for our trip up North on the Saturday. He was a good boy in his show pen during the journey and I presume was well behaved for the judge at the show because he earned himself a Best In Show. All of his success got him a little bit excited on the Saturday night and he thought he'd have a little party, making as much noise in his tank as he could. I don't often share a room with the hamsters and now I know why.

Wonderful that we'll get all of your hamily news in the same thread.
Photobucket have really made me mad and I didn't use it. It's so sad to see some threads and the pics blacked out.
Lovely Matthew!

It is a shame that all the photos from the individual threads have gone now but it's a great idea to have all the Metallica team in one place for updates now.
Sweet photo of the handsome Matthew, his after show party made me laugh

I'm annoyed about Photobucket too. Also mystified as to why the photos I posted with Photobucket are still showing up, despite me only having a free account.

Matthew is looking very handsome. He was clearly very excited about his BIS!

It's quite disheartening that Photobucket did that terrible disservice to their loyal customers. I'm glad that you decided to create a thread for the entire Metallica hamily. Congrats on Matthew being awarded Best in Show. He is so deserving of this prestigious award. I'm sure you must be extremely proud. He certainly looks as handsome as ever in his latest pic. It is wonderful that you were able to stay with Vectis during your trip. I know you must have had a marvelous time together. Congrats again, Fluffagrams and Matthew!

He can be quite an excitable little guy sometimes, the complete opposite to James in some respects but in other ways he's got his similarity.

I had a lovely time and Vectis was such a fantastic host. It was nice to be able to have a proper chat outside of shows as we're often both busy at shows and don't really get a huge amount of time to chat. I also found it really interesting watching and learning from her interactions with Rogue. I hope it will be helpful when I eventually get my own dog (I'm currently not allowed with my current living arrangements).

I love your Chineseys! Having them in one great place sounds lovely. I wish I could reach through the screen and cuddle them.

Matthew was feeling adventurous yesterday, so much so that his playbin couldn't contain his desire to explore and somehow he managed to climb out. Thankfully, he did not get far but wasn't amused at having to be returned to his carrier to go back up to the hamster room.

This has only happened once before when Jessie climbed out of a box but this box was much deeper than the one Jessie had escaped from and was my smooth sided playbox rather than one of the ones with meshed sides. I honestly thought that there was no way he could climb out but he's a cheeky boy and worked it out.

I will be putting a lid on Matthew's play bin in future because although I supervise them, you only have to take your eyes off them for a second and they're doing something silly.

The funny thing was that I brought Matthew down for his playtime today and he was more than happy to play in his carrier with the Fitch. Daft boy!

I'm so relieved that you were able to catch Matthew in time. He's quite the little Houdini keeping you on your toes! Lol, Matthew preferring to be in his carrier with the Fitch instead of being inside his play bin - what a silly ham! He's like a little kid enjoying the wrapping paper instead of the actual present.
