Default Cactus' Thread

It's been awhile since I've been on, and a lot has happened. So, first off, I got a hamster again! His name is Cactus and he's a long-haired Syrian. I also have a new cage for him, except it's a 30-gallon aquarium with a mesh lid. Since there was a lot of unused space higher up in the tank, I added in a large dollhouse-type thing. He really enjoys clambering around on it and hiding food in the bottom level. I started using hamster sand in a small ceramic dish, and he likes to dig and roll in it, except he keeps getting tons of bedding in it (probably because the bedding sticks to his fur)! But anyway, here are some pictures:



Cactus sitting in his food bowl when I first got him


Another photo of him sitting in his food bowl




Cactus putting his little paws against the glass (so cute )



Cactus enjoying the outdoors- in safety, of course


Cactus is still pretty young (maybe eight months?). He is very curious about anything and everything, so I have to keep him out of trouble! He really enjoys hiding the dog biscuits I give him and storing them away to chew on in the early hours of the morning. He wasn't quick to open up; it took maybe a month and a half for him to be comfortable when I picked him up. But now he'll crawl all over and look for food when I pick him up! He is a really great hamster, and there will be plenty of great memories in our future!

Cactus is so gorgeous and so fluffy. These pictures are so cute, I really like the first picture of him in his bowl and the picture with his foot on the glass.

It's been awhile since I've posted on here. Thank you all for the wonderful comments! Not much has happened, but I thought I'd like to introduce you guys all to my new Youtube channel. I decided to start making videos relating to hamsters. The channel is called "Basket Hamsters" and you can access it here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCvU...-dmx--gnYcUDOg

Now, the first video was just one I had made a long time ago and posted somewhere else, so I just posted it up on my channel. Here it is: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q6oeWqU40VU


This is the second and most recent video. It is basically just Cactus's cage tour. It is here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4Uvx8Ut2fPU


Sorry if this post was a little bit of a self-promo. But the videos will feature hamster information and cute hamster clips that I've taken of Cactus, so if anyone is interested in that, I would definitely appreciate it if you checked out the channel and/or videos!

Just some pictures I took of Cactus today for a "Christmas photoshoot". I may use one of these in the Souffle's special Christmas card contest, but I'm not sure yet. I did have a sketch prepared to turn into a card, but these pictures are too cute! Anyway:


Cactus wandering around a tabletop


Cactus inspecting some Christmas decorations


And finally, Cactus looking up at the camera
