Default Meet Merilil

I had a very special arrival yesterday
Meet Meri, she's only about 5 weeks, teeny tiny (maybe smaller than a robo!) so delicate, beautiful & just perfect!
My first dom spot female too.
It's very soon after Míri going to the bridge & usually takes me much longer to get another ham but I've been so lost without her, I was thinking about it the weekend before last & suddenly a really vibrant rainbow appeared so I took that as a sign that it was ok.

She's a very brave little lady, spent hours exploring every inch of her new cage & having a go in her wheel, it doesn't move much but she got the hang of it bless her, this morning she took some seeds from my fingers, I hadn't even realised she was up & about but she ran over to me, gave my fingers a good sniff first then happily took a pumpkin seed, well three actually because it was so adorable I had to give her more!
I'm waiting for a her to settle a little more before trying to take photos but here she is when she arrived.

I did post photos of her cage in the cages thread but I'll put one here too.

She's so cute, and sounds like a great companion to have already. I love how colourful your cage set up is.

Cypher, this is wonderful news. I am so pleased that you found just the little lady you wanted after the rainbow sign. She is beautiful in that photo and her lovely markings show well.
Another awesome cage set up and I spy a hallowe’en fuzzbutt snooze cube and hammock for her among all the other items for a happy hammie home.
Welcome little Meri, and I look forward to following you settling in to your new home.

What a beautiful ham, Cypher! I'm glad you felt able to offer her a new home. She has certainly landed on her paws, as your cage layout looks wonderful. I'm sure she will love her new palace.

Thanks everyone

Well spotted Coco! I always find it hard to resist a fuzzbutt halloween but I also thought it would always be October in the cage now & a memory of my little Míri.

Meri was a no show last night, I kept hearing her digging in her house then it all went quiet again, maybe she was still sleeping off the excitement!
When I put her in the cage I really wondered if she would be able to reach into her sand baths but she obviously made it & that's where I found her this morning, surrounded by a lovely mess, I do love a ham mess lol!

She had a wary moment then came running over to see me again & needless to say got very spoilt with some treats, I can't get over how brave she is.
Even after treats she still had room for breakfast before going back to bed.
