Love the ham-chat! It's a funny, delightful world through their little eyes....

3am sounds perfect timing to spend with a hamster. Good for you to wind down after work and perfect for Poppy who will be wide awake and welcoming.
Henry is not keen on too much open space so i've tied upturned small cardboard fruit trays on the inside of the cage roof. That would also work to prevent a hamster from swinging off the roof. I also got degu shelves and they are great because they can go anywhere on a bar cage which would also prevent falls. I have also suspended a long ladder from roof to top half of side which would prevent falls. May work for Poppy instead of a bigger shelf. Henry doesn't climb unless he wants to reach foods he needs to make an effort to get to but he likes walking across and sitting on the shelves.

Good afternoon Messer's Newt and Nugget, it is a pleasure to make your acquaintance.

Master Newt you do seem to rather enjoy your food, personally I have only one hoard and that is in my cottage where I sleep and write on the Ham-net it is a wonderful thing this Ham-net so many Hams out there to talk to. Big Paw who looks after my needs is quite helpful and brings me nice things to eat or try at least, he says I give him " The Look" when something is not up to standard, or I don't like it, well you do have to keep your servants in their place don't you know.

Master Nugget, I am so sorry to hear that you have lumps, I have no inkling of what they may be as I am but a youngster and have very little experience so far, it is nice that you have a cosy hammock to relax in and have this baby food, I trust your Hooman carer waits on your every need as they should do, I like running in my wheel it is big and I can run for ages and not be disturbed as Big Paw has gone to what he calls work, and the other biped here looks in on me and makes cooing noises, what is that about? I can only assume the other one is a female and they are mates, who knows with these giant bipeds.

I must dash as I can hear Big Paw approaching and he makes unsavoury noises if he catches me on his lap top thingy.

TTFN
Mistress Poppy

G'Day All,

Just a quick up date, I'm sure Poppy has been on the lap top again, I keep finding paw prints on the keys and the screen...
Anyhoo, Poppy seems to returned to her version of Normality, when I got home this morning she was quite attentive, and she now seems to recognise the rattling of tins and packets and ran up to the door when I opened it straight onto my hand to have her carrot drops she so likes, these where pouched along with a munch stick, carried away to her hoard, she popped back out seconds later and ran straight out into my hands, I swear she would try jumping, may be with a little more courage she may even do that, it's funny how she runs out of the cage onto my hands then runs back and repeats several times as though it is a game.
Poppy is turning into quite the character who is full of fizz.

Good day Mistress Poppy,

I hope to find you well and enjoying life.

It appears that I have moved to Alaska so I do hope that this letter will reach you.

You may ask why I have moved to Alaska which is the very question I have asked myself.
I'll tell you what happened and maybe you, intelligent lady that you are, may be able to make some sense of it all because I am somewhat perplexed.

While I was nodding off I overheard a conversation between Big Nose and Whiskers and can vaguely remember Big Nose telling Whiskers that I, Henry Hamster, ought to move into a bigger home with large double gates in Alaska. I then fell asleep and had a nightmare. There was a commotion outside my bedroom and I heard removal paws moving my furniture around. When Big Nose lifted me out of my bed I realized that this was not a dream but really happening! I had a rude awakening and found myself sitting in the middle of the lunch box with the carrot house. I had to resort to yet another tedious tantrum to get the humans attention so tipped the carrot house over causing Whiskers to laugh. Whiskers laughed at me!!! I sulked.
Big Nose picked me up and I let her because I do not like to sit in the lunch box and she put me back down in my home.
My home was the same but different or different but the same, somewhat more spacious and there was a coconut shaped outhouse I had not seen before. I did the essential checks and established that my duvet had not been stolen and some tasty food had been plated up for me.
Apropos duvet. It is a term I have adopted from the human language and means bedding. I sometimes exercise on Big Nose's duvet and run circuits.
My dear Poppy, I am exhausted from thinking and eating so will have to say good bye for now. I need to relax on my wheel to gather my thoughts. Did you know they had coconuts in Alaska?
With kindest regards
Yours
Henry

My Dearest Henry,

it is so good to hear from you again, I wonder if we are neighbours as I live in Alaska too, though I do not have a coconut outhouse to shelter in, I shall have to discuss this arrangement with Big Paw, though I have been given a large tube to play in, what does he expect so I have ignored it until I am ready.
Big Paw is rather excellent I hate to admit this at bringing me delicious morsels of foods to try, I have had Kiche what ever that is but it was nice it had egg and something he calls pastry, it was very Nom-Nom. I have also had baby corn, who wants to eat babies? But I was assured that it wasn't a real baby so I tried that too and can heartily recommend it as well as a funny thing called a grape, it looks hard and roundish until you bite into it then there is juice which gets your whiskers wet, so even though this is an enjoyable food, be warned you will need a lot of washing and grooming afterwards.
I have ventured out of Alaska, a few times onto Big Paw's Paws and he has carried me around his nest and let me roam about what he calls a sofa it has many things to hide behind and is easy to climb, I even climbed on not so Big Paw (that's his female) and met one of their cubs who was nice and stroked me very gently.
Big Paw also took what he calls pictures and says he will show them to all who are interested.
I must go now as I can hear Big Paw coming back.

Hey Folks just a quick note though I expect Poppy has been on the Ham-Net again, she is doing well and is coming out more, though she does run about like a crazy mad thing, she also digs like a frantic thing in her sand box, I swear she is trying to get through to china though she does kick all her sand out all over the place...!
The Pics show Poppy out and about and the last one she is posing quite regally.

Oh wow, Poppy is absolutely gorgeous! I love her colouring and to get a hamster to pose like that AND to get a photo is quite something else.
