Ria, Coco, Serendipity.

Thank you for your kind comments, Poppy is a rather fast Hammy and getting pics of her with my phone is a bit of a trial.
Tonight the little devil decided to abseil down the back of the sofa/lounge wall, the problem is the sofa leans away from the wall so she fell/jumped the last 12-24inches down to the floor..!
I was in abit of a tizzy right then but no harm was done and she spent a good 10 mins exploring under the sofa until I could get her out. Luckily the lounge is Hamster proof with the door to the dining room closed.
After putting her back in her cage she promptly climbed the bars to the top and started chewing them until I let her out again the little monkey.. She has me twisted round her paws already..!

I can only get photos when food is involved really As they tend to sit still then! She sounds a very active little lady ha ha.

Dearest Poppy,

First of all, may I compliment you on your stunning photos and say how delighted I am to have someone as glamourous as you as a neighbour.

This is a quick culinary update before I retire to my nest and I take this opportunity to include a photo of me eating porridge. I do apologise that my face is in the porridge and not looking at Big Nose who said "cheese". Eh? Where is the cheese? Sniff sniff, there is no cheese.
I think I have tried most of the things you have been offered but not Kiche. I need to ask for that because it sounds very nice.
I am very fond of green beans and like the juicyness of grapes and tropical fruit but like you say they require a lot of washing afterwards.
Is there anything you don't like? I don't like tomatoes and strawberries. Maybe its the colour that puts me off because I find green foods more appetising.

I heard that you gave Big Paw a fright and found this very amusing. You need to keep these humans on their paws.

Must go now, my nest is waiting.
with kindest regards
yours Henry

Hi All,
Poppy update, weighed for the first time the other night and she is a steady 155g, this is great.
Poppy is also quite the ambitious hamster, climbing like a mad thing chewing bars etc, this gets more frantic after I put her back in her cage having had some roaming about the house, Poppy gets to free roam in the lounge which is hamster proof, though she does try to dig up the carpet by the door no idea why but she does.
I have also managed to get some more shots with my phone when she stays still long enough, she is one quite speedy little beastie.

These photos are amazing! I don't know how you do it. Hamsters are as difficult to photograph as young kids as neither of them sit still for more than a second and you get the lighting right at the same time. Poppy is extremely photogenic. She's almost smiling at the camera. So cute!

Ria,
I guess it helps with me being a bit of a photographer, just wait till I get her with my proper camera gear, I have held off so far as I don't want to spook her with the main flash.

So tonight I got Madam out of her cage, she was calmly on my arm and so I began stroking her along her back, she stayed put with her little tail arched almost vertical she seemed mesmerised as I stroked her from her head to tail, I stopped after 10 mins and she seemed to come out of her trance and wanted down to free roam about the lounge, so she had a good half hour free roaming, and when she was put back in her cage she promptly attacked the bars at the door as she wanted back out..!

My Dearest Henry,
I am pleased you found the time in your busy schedule to correspond again, I must say you do look the part eating your porridge what ever that is but you do seem to be enjoying it.
I do like your picture you are a very Handsome Man indeed.
Big Paw keeps giving me more new things to try, I do rather like pastry especially the one that comes around what Big Nose calls a Pork Pie, I have also had a new yumminess that makes your face not only sticky but turns it red too, this thing is called a Cherry they are very good indeed.
I agree that cheese is very nice too, I always make room for cheese....
I have also had some Broccoli which was ok, but nothing that special, I always love sweetcorn which is so good it makes me smile.
I am a little concerned as I have heard Big Nose saying that I am going to have my cage and house cleaned out, I am not impressed and will make my displeasure shown..!
Must go now as I have a fresh bowl of yummies being brought in, Nom, Nom, Nom.
Your Dearest Friend
Poppy

Tonight was Poppies first nest clean, I found that she pees in her nest, poo's there too..!
She had made quite a mess I had to throw out her wooden house as she had chewed holes in the bottom edges as well..!
Luckily I had kept the box it came in so that is her house now.
She wasn't happy about this either, she had quite the teenager strop about it, I think there may even have been a bit of sulking.
I let her out for a second free roam tonight and all she wanted to do was destroy the carpet in the corners of the lounge, when I put her back in her cage she proceeded to try to destroy that too.
I managed to grab a few shots with the proper camera the night before instead of the phone. Hope they come up to spec.

These photos are brilliant! Poppy all sweet and smiley but in that last pic she means business. She almost has a frown on as if she's weighing something up....
