Default Meet Cupcake

I found a winter white up for adoption in my area, and just couldn't go any longer without a little hammy in my life. I'd like you all to meet Cupcake! She's small and sweet, hence the name.

Her set up is almost identical to how I had late little Pearl's bin, but with extra nesting boxes and some tunnels under the substrate. She's absolutely loving the sand bath, and prefers the space under it for her home burrow.

She seems to have been well taken care of, and is already pretty confident. I've seen her looking for me a few times in the corner, and she's already taking treats when held out of my fingers. Plus trying to climb up my arm sometimes

I think I'm going to upgrade to a Detolf when I can for her sometime late next month, I'd love to give her more room than the 675 square inch bin.

Day 2 fun!

I am so happy for you! Cupcake is adorable. I laughed when she went under the bedding and came out the other side of her cage. The name Cupcake is perfect for her.

She's cute! Congratulations to Cupcake. I'm so glad that you gave another little hamster a loving home.

Those little brown ones are full of character and energy. Small hamsters with huge personalities. Love it the way she rolls in her sandbath.

You found yourself a lovely little companion there. Looking forward to see and hear more from Cupcake.

Thank you so much guys! Cupcake is right along track, hopped into my hand a little bit today and munched two sunflower seeds. She finally tested it with a forceful nibble, and no bites at all!

Really happy with how quickly she's settling in, all the tips I've gotten on here with Pearl have helped out make this a good start for Cupcake 3 days in. It's great to see her out and about during prime hamster hours.

I was able to get her to hop on a second time before bed, here's some footage. It came out a bit dark, but she's a sweetie: Hand Time!

Cupcake is a complete sweetheart! We've had a few great interactions after I came home from work today. I swear, a little bit of Pearl is in her. She does seem more adventurous and eager to play, but I did accidentally spook her once by moving my arm over her. I know better, made it up with a sunflower seed though

After work together time!

It is really lovely Cupcake is not scared of your hand. I wonder if in her previous home she was handled.

She definitely has, never had a single bite from her the whole time! One testing nibble, and the hand wasn't an enemy since.

I did just come home, and I think she's upset I handed back her gifted seeds last night. She flipped the ladder pretty good, and it's been sitting next to a new treat ball puzzle I made.

Now the Ria has explained, I know to never reject her gifts again. I'll make sure to gently take a seed, and no givebacks! I love the little ham so much, she's a total sweetie.
