IRL - In real life, referring to Jasper's first show and when I met the handsome Sweep

! I enjoyed the show, too. I loved looking at all the guinea pigs and hamsters.

I bet you were excited when your dad said you could have a hamster. I still get excited now about any new arrivals and getting to know them.
Had you already decided that you wanted to get your hamster from Tuftyfluff when you were told or did you find her afterwards?
I love researching hamsters.
OMG YESSS! I have wanted a hamster for about 4-5 years and but only started my proper research a few years ago. I used to blast ErinsAnimals videos on full volume in an attempt to make my wishes known, lol
. I begged for soooooooooooo long for a hamster, and chose a name (Larry-Jasper) THREE years ago lol. My mum always said no, becasue it is impratical, but I think she likes him. My dad said yes (eventually) but the cage had to be the perfect size, so I made the IKEA Billy.
I found Tuftyfluff in 2014 through her website. I just googled 'hamster breeder (my local town)' and looked through all the results. The latest post, where people request hamsters is the best! Lots of people are more interested in 'hampsters' though
I wanted to be able to show my first hamster, so I had my heart set on a Tuftyfluff, although I plan to rescue/hamnap my next hamster. Tuftyfluff is my closest breeder (I could probably walk to her house (sounds very creepy
) but I'm too lazy lol) and she also gave me a vet recommendation for Jasper, so I won't use the one that I do for Oreo (where I volunteer). Jasper has never needed the vet though. Tuftyfluff lives very near to one of my best friend's.
Oh look I've rambled on and on. Sorry not sorry
