Default Meet Cosmo

Here is my new hamster. Sadly my boy Captain has passed away. . He was only 5 months old, his mother had to be PTS due to a lump found after acting erratically and having a messy bottom. All of his siblings passed away also. Dad is still going strong at work, even though he is coming up 4 now and starting to look it. I was so sad he was only looking poorly for two days, Saturday night in November and Monday he passed away while I was at work. He bloated very quickly, but he was still eating and drinking and I booked a vet appointment but it wasn't till the Thursday, he stopped drinking the Sunday night.

I picked up Cosmo on the 11th December, not sure if he is actually a boy put the spacing is longer than a girls, he was having a tantrum when they were checking and they were not entirely show what side the girls were on, and what side the boys were on. He is a long hair Syrian. I think they separated him to early as he is still scared of being picked up and bites. Not sure of his ages but I am guessing he is between 6-8 weeks. He used to run off as soon as we walked in the room but he doesn't now. It is going to take a while to tame him, not sure they did any handling, but I love him anyway without the bites. I'm just glad I got him out of that pet shop, they made it seem like they were very well handled and used to people but they were kept in probably 50cm long cages together. Images (8).zip

Cosmo is very cute - errr I mean handsome . Very good runner. Maybe he can be in the ham-lympics? In the video he looks quite young, maybe 5 to 6 weeks?

It's not the first time a pet shop has too young hamsters. My local Pets at Home's Russians all look about 3 weeks old! They also told my friend (I was there) that the hamster she got was 10 weeks old and it was fine to keep them together at that age!!! She knows better. Thankfully, her Syrian is well looked after and totally spoiled in her Hamster Heaven cage .

Anyway, congrats on the new fluff . Jasper waves hello, too.

The little fiend has chewed his pedometer on his wheel so it only displays the time on the clock, not how far he has run . Captain didn't manage to chew it either, I seem to have a chewing biting machine.
I gave him a hazelnut today, which he loved.
