Default I've gone and adopted a beautiful Robo called Snowy (:

Hey everyone (:

So yesterday me and my boyfriend where doing a trip around all our local pet stores to get chinchilla sand, saw dust and food etc just general supplies for Gizmo and Gimli! The last place we went was Pets at Home and of course they had the adoption centre there so we had a look at all the guinea pigs, rabbits and hamsters.

Then we came across a beautiful little Robo called Snowy, she's 13/14 weeks old but had been in adoption since late February. She'd been picked on by her house mates and was taken in with wounds on her belly and left in the care of the vets in the store. Luckily she's had a full recovery and a check up before she was given to us and she's fine now. We just couldn't leave her we felt an instant attachment (: She's abit skittish but she seems to be settling in just great!

I haven't taken any pictures yet as I want to let her settle in before I bother her,
I was wondering if anyone has any experience on adopted hamsters? As I want to make sure I give her the best life possible without her being scared and I want her to trust me and eventually become tame.

I will upload some pictures soon!

Thanks alot in advance (:

Awww Congrats. She sounds lovely

I do have experience with adoption hams 5 infact. Two of which are Robo's .
Just treat them as you would a baby ham. No rush. Lots of patience and she'll get there.

Looking forward to some pics. What colour is she? I really want a white one day and with her being called snowy i was assuming she is?

Thanks a lot (: I'll just do with her what I did with my other two and hopefully she's settle in just fine, she seems happy enough tho!

How did all your adopted hammys get on? Did they all become quite tame and not mind being handled?

Funnily enough she's not actually white, bite I've seen some white ones and they're gorgeous! She was already named Snowy by her previous owner, maybe she was a lot lighter when she was younger? Who knows! She's beautiful tho and I will be uploading some pictures soon (: thanks for the help!

It is alot haha. I can't resist them. Makes me so sad them all unloved and unwanted. You know its bad when all the staff start to recognise you

Aside from my shy chinese girl i am always getting comments on here how jammy i am as they have all turned out to be confident and extremely friendly.

The fun thing about adopted hamsters is the possibility they were well-handled and are already friendly. I am fortunate that that was my case. My boys (Syrians though) were well handled so they adjusted quickly and were very outgoing. Hopefully yours will adjust quickly!
