Default Hello

Hello everyone,

We recently welcomed a hamster in to the family as we gave our son one last week. Chip is a beautiful little Syrian with grey head and hind quarters and a white band about her middle. She is quiet little thing, not like some of the characters I have read about here, perhaps she biding her time and working us out. We adopted her from the local pets at home store and will do our best to give her as good a life as we can.

As a complete hamster novices it has been a steep learning curve for us all and I should have done more research before we brought her home. I made the mistake of believing everything the salesperson said but the excellent advice on this forum is setting me straight.

Will

Hi and welcome to the HC family. Congrats on giving Chip her loving, forever home with your family. Your son will have so much for with her, I'm sure. I look forward to getting to know all about Chip and seeing pics when she settles in more and you have the opportunity.

If you ever have any questions, always feel free to ask away. We all are here to help one another out because we all care for one another and each other's hammies.

Eros says Hi and is thrilled to have another wonderful ham to join the HC hamily.

Thank you all for the warm welcome.

Happily Chip seems to be settling in well. I will try to take a few photos of her over the weekend.

Cheers
