Smile (Almost) 1 year on the forum!

I don't know if this is a little weird to post or anything, but tomorrow I will have been on the forum 1 year. That means that exactly one year ago, my dad told me I could get a hamster (already named Larry-Jasper lol).

I really just want to thank everyone on the forum who has helped me to learn about hamsters, and I am still learning, so just a MASSIVE thank you to everyone. Without HC, I don't think I would know nearly as much as I do .

I really love HC and feel like I have met (digitally and IRL) some amazing people. It's so cool to have such a welcoming and educational place on the internet for hamster banter. I am yet to convince my friends IRL with hamsters to join here so they are just missing out lol .

Colossal sized thank you and here's to another great year of hamster education (raises hamster water bottle in appreciation )!

You are a great member here too chesca and contribute a lot. Meeting and communicating on HC is great for us and our hamsters! You are never too old to learn as I have found out here! Loved meeting you and pinkneon at the show and naturally Larry-Jasper and Sweep!

There's always something to learn if you're willing to do so and what we do learn can help us better understand how we can meet the needs of each hamster we own.

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?

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

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

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 .
