Default Meet Ghost-The Ghost Files

Hello Everyone,

After Pip's sudden and untimely demise, I spoke to her today , about getting a new Hamster Friend, I felt that she had no objection to this, and that she would approve and hopefully become a Guardian Hammy..

After a trip to our local Pets@Home here in Peterborough post work..

I looked at the Hammies they had on offer, there where several " Mini Pip's" which I discounted, there was one older ham with very unique colouring but still a Pip-a-like albeit much darker.

I came across what is now our latest Hamster Incumbent, she was the only one who was interested having being woken from a slumber, the others I looked at just seemed to want to cower and hide and had no get up and go.

I have called her "Ghost" we are assuming that Ghost is a "she" or a very immature male but I am thinking Girl...

So from being home and out of a tiny little cage at the shop to an Alaska cage she loves the space.
Already she can climb like a demon, up & down, she can circumnavigate the cage on the bars, and also monkey bars across the top even turning round mid cage...!
She does fall off a lot, but she has a very deep layer of substrate to land on.
When she found her sand bath/pit she went bananas with her frantic digging/bathing I swear I could see a smile....
She has also burrowed to the bottom of the cage and along some before coming up mid cage with a daft look on her face.

Ghost is very very pale cream banded so the very pale cream blends into the white and she has bright red eyes too, from a certain angle it does give her a demonic look.

I have added a picture it is only from my phone so once she is tamed properly I will unleash the full Rads-Photography.....

Ghost is absolutely gorgeous! Once she has settled in and you're able to start taming her you can out her in a glass container (that she can't climb straight out of!) And look at her from underneath it to try and determine her sex. I love her big eyes too!

Aww! Dear Ghost, you are such a little cutie and you are going to be so loved by your dad and us too.
Rads, I'm so happy you have a new hammy in your life, so looking forward to seeing her grow. Such a cheeky face.

What a little poppet! It was lucky for her that you popped in after work or who knows where she could have ended up. Now she's got a really caring hamdad. Looking forward to the pics.

Such a lovely little hammie! I’m happy that you have found another furry friend to share your life with, Rads. Ghost is a very nice colour. My first hamster was cream banded and as a baby his cream was so light it was almost white, but it darkened as he got older. Will be interesting to see if the same thing happens to little Ghost. Looking forward to following this thread

Hallo,
My name is Ghost well that is what my new Hooman tells me it is, I'll just let him think he knows my real name but I'm not going to let on as he can't speak Hamster.

Yesterday I was asleep in my tiny little cage in the place I was at, Hooman says it was a pet store, well I don't know about that, I wouldn't see much as my little cage was right by the floor so I got to see feets .

I am 6 weeks old says Hooman person in shop thingy, new Hooman makes funny noises at me so I come out from my corner under the water thingy to investigate, I sniffed at his paw it is so so big, it is bigger than all of me but wasn't scared, well just a little bit.
They went away for a while and then came back the shop Hooman scooped me up and put me in a box, after that there was noises, and funny smells and wooshing and bumps and all sorts of fings.
Then it went quiet and there was different smells and then my box was opened up and I was in a new big place, the biggest place ever it is giant and there is lots of food and this green stuff Hooman calls cookumber, not had that before it tasted nice and was cool to eat.

So now if peoples ask I say to them I am Ghost, I run and run and I climb, I monkey bar, I fall off sometimes but there is lots of soft stuff to land on.
I also run and run and run on my wheel Hooman says when I get bigger I can have Pip's wheel which is bigger and more fun well so he says.
I have a sand pit too, would believe it sand ,real sand so I can dig and scratch and roll about and everythink...
There are things for me to climb and run about on and go hide and go seeks, Hooman says when I am bigger and more friendly he will let me out and I can do exploring and stuff, so far I am exploring in my new home and digging and all that hamster stuff Hoomans know nothing about.
I am going to go sleeps now and bury myself in a corner with just my nose peeking out...

Oh what a little cutie. Love her name. I was actually going to call my dwarf Ghost but then didn't in the end. Love the name anyway.

Looking forward to some gorgeous pics of this little one.

Hello Ghost. My name is Quigley and I have never been to a pet shop but my mum tells me that is where she gets all my food and toys. I think you will be much happier living with your new hooman though. They can be a bit slow on the uptake, and the poor things have barely any fur, but they give you all sorts of yummy things. I also like running and climbing and digging in sand!!
