Default Adopting tomorrow

Hi all,

It's been so long!
Hope you are all keeping well 🙂

I haven't had a hamster in my life since my sweet Wonder sadly passed away back in march.

I saw a local posting about a young black male hamster up for adoption (an impulsive lockdown purchase that they now don't feel they can dedicate the time to) and I pick him up tomorrow.

He's currently called Spike (I'm thinking of renaming him though) and he's supposedly very shy (previous owner has not tamed him) so I might have a bit of a challenge on my hands but I can't wait to meet him ☺️

I'll be sure to update you soon.

Congrats on finding a ham to give a loving forever home to, look forward to seeing some photos & hearing about him once he comes home & settles in, I’ve always had a soft spot for black hams!

Congratulations! Looking forward to see photos of your new hamster and an introduction once you've decided on a name.

Thank you Cypher and Ria.

Can't wait to snap some photos once he's settled in.

I haven't really seen him properly yet but I can't imagine a ham that isn't cute ��

Great news. He is lucky to have found you x. Looking forward to meeting him and I am sure he will respond to you fairly soon. We adopted Moo when he was a year old - he was tame but a bit institutionalised! So not that keen on being handled for a while. It’s just confidence and bonding probably.

Looking forward to meeting him!

Thank you Serendipity ��

Just looked at sweet Moo's thread - he's a total cutie! ☺️
