Default ♥ Boopi the hammie

Hi guys!
Meet Boopi the hammie! ^o^ He's been with my for almost three weeks now, and it's been a rollercoaster ride for him! The first time I saw him, he was all snuggled up with his brothers. He was being squished against the glass wall, but he didn't care :P! That's when I thought.. this silly little hammie, I'm bringing him home!

I don't know the English word, but in the Netherlands we call it a "Garden Centre". It's where you can buy plants, garden and pet stuff. So the guy at the garden centre recommended a sort of cat litter for nesting, unfortunately I hadn't done my research then. After two days of bringing Boopi home, I decided to change it to Carefresh, but that made him really scared the sudden change. It was already hard enough for him the whole process of moving sorry Boopi!

Since he bit me, I got scared of handling him. I got sad and anxious that I would hurt him, that he's scared of me etc, that he wouldn't get used to me. He hissed a lot. Now two weeks later he still bites me lol. But I feel he's slowly starting to get used to me! He doesn't hiss anymore when i (spot) clean his cage, or pick his house up to clean. It's probably still gonna take a lot of time for him to really get close to me, but it'll be worth the wait! Thank you guys on this forum, it's been a real help reading up on tips and tricks. Couldn't have done it without you guys! ^^

Hello Boopi

He's adorable xiaojingi, it does sound like you two had a bit of a rough start together but we all tend to make mistakes in the beginning but our hams are usually very forgiving! I'm sure taming will progress steadily, it does take a little time & patience but the bond between you will grow.

Aww hi Boopi - great name choice by the way!

He's georgeous, seems you two got off on a slightly rough start but he'll become tame eventually I'm sure

Can't wait to hear more about him - that pic is beyond adorable
