Thank you Ria & Coco Coco she is definitely quite a handful I have to be on my toes constantly when she is out free roaming, she is a a bit of a Suicide hamster, I had her on the coffee table hoping to grab a shot or two, I thought she would be ok but no she jumped off...! She has no sense of fear..!
Grabbed a few shots of her from tonight's free roam session.

I weighed Poppy tonight and she is 168g..! She is on her way to being a big girl.
Tonight she was super mischievous as well, she also did that weird thing when I stroke her back and she goes all dopey and mesmerised until I stop then about 30 seconds elapses till she comes out of it.
One thing I noticed tonight was on her right flank where a males scent gland would be is a strange raised lumpy area which doesn't bother her at all, it is as though she has had some damage to a rib and it is scar tissue. It is quite odd asthis is the first time I have felt it on her. If any one has any idea please let me know.

I was going to say she has grown! Great photos. I know that look on photo 2! It's kind of when they get confident and "I'm on guard" type thing - don't mess with me. And then as you say, go all dopey! Glad she will sit for stroking.

I don't know about the lumpy thing. Just the one side? Souffle might know. Do you have a photo or is it more a feel thing?

Good Evening,
I am Mistress Poppy and I thought I would have a few words with you all.
My Hooman Carer "Big Paw" has been less than compliant with my needs and requests, he keeps on insisting on trying me with different foods, I commend him for this but I want sweetcorn and peas, though I do like these things he calls cherries, though they make a mess of ones fur, and make ones face a strange colour, the blueberries are ok too, though I don't know why he likes strawberries so much they are not of interest to me, I like the banana he gives me in the mornings when he has his morning food.
I am not impressed by his black flashy picture box thingy, it makes me jump with the bright flash it gives off, he says I look pretty and cute, I say I look devilishly gorgeous and I need to remind him of that.
He is good and lets me out of my confinement where I can run around his burrow he calls it a house, but who cares, I try to hide from him just to keep him on his toes, he calls out for me but clearly can not hear me laughing as I hide and sneak about.
Suggestions for keeping Big Paw in check are welcomed from all, in the mean time I shall retire to ones nest with pouches full of sweetcorn and other goodies.

Oh, Mistress Poppy, you do make me laugh! Oops, I don't mean that to offend anybody, especially a smart hamster who knows her mind and knows the score as well as you do.... Hang onto your personality and convictions, and trust that eventually Big Paw will see that your preferences are the most important thing. He'll probably keep trying new foods on you -- he really is just looking to see what makes you happy -- but maybe, just maybe he'll make sure to ALWAYS include at least one of your favorites. And for the awful black flashing thingy, I'm afraid that might not go away anytime soon.... But try to see the bright side (no pun intended) -- he gets to show you off to other hoomans who are interested in hamsters, too. You get to be the star of the show on the ham-net! That isn't an entirely bad thing, don't you think...?
Good luck with it all, and don't let go of the courage of your convictions. That's what hamsters are known for!

Aww! Just been catching up with Mistress Poppy's thread, over 3 weeks of photos to Aww over, she's coming along beautifully Rads, her antics and expressions so made me laugh. I loved every pic especially the one of her on top of the Cds, does she have a favourite band? So pleased to read that she has experienced The Master Harvey Roast Dinner lol! I love her colouring.
P. S. Mistress Poppy you are so devilishly gorgeous, you ooze so much gorgeousness, that your thread should be renamed The Devilishly Mistress Poppy.

Thanks TL
I love the idea of Poppy being "The Devilishly Mistress Poppy" especially as how she zooms around the lounge on her free roaming sessions I have a couple of videos of the crazy Poppy zooming around that I need to put on You Tube and publish the links.

When she gets put back in her cage she pulls it apart and starts bar chewing so I will let her out again.
She is also with out any fear, Poppy jumps and falls at times and has landed on her head, her back, yet nothing phases her, not even trying to climb the curtains.

She really is a beautiful girl ham Rads. The lump is likely the scent gland. It is not just males who have the hip scent glands and females have them too though they are often less prominent. She probably has one on the other side too. It could also be a healed old wound - maybe a little tiff when she was younger? Keep an eye on it though and just much sure it doesn't get larger or she starts biting at it or anything.

Hi Souffle,
Thanks, I am pretty sure it is a scent gland as she does have a small dent in her fur on both sides.
When the gland was prominent and lumpy I think she may have been in heat especially the way she was behaving when I was stroking her, she was frozen to the spot, and her tail was arched up to the vertical, when I stopped stroking she took a full minute to become de-mesmerised..
Poppy is quite beautiful and as crazy as Forrest if not more, a Diva like Pip and at times a Jumpy wally like Ghost.
She has no fear, which worries me as she has thrown her self from the back of the sofa onto a side table, from the coffee table to the floor etc I just hope she doesn't hurt her self as she lands on her back, on her head, even faceplanted the carpet..! That is with me trying to stop her aswell..!
