Default Show Off Your Winter Look!

Hi all,

My little hamster Henry has gone through a little transformation over the winter much to my surprise. He just wanted to show off the winter look he's currently rocking and we're hoping to see the other hammies' winter styles!

Before and after pictures included, apologies for blurring he is reluctant to pose

We were surprised when Humbug started to change colour too.
This is Humbug when we first got her


A few months later


and now! Guess she will change back as it gets warmer??

Thanks everyone I can't believe he's gone completely white but I'm hoping his markings Come back soon because they're what drew me to him It's near impossible for me to get a good picture of him because unless he's eating he won't stay in one spot

Humbug is so cute, and looks so tiny Tell me more about Humbug's personality, I love hearing about the quirks of other hamsters!

Thanks - she is very cheeky and was very small when we got her (possibly too young to have left her mum!)
However she has nearly doubled in size and eats more than Niggle my Syrian.
She is always on the move and asks to be picked up when we open her cage but is so fast its hard to keep hold of her.
She loves cleaning day as we swap her toys and she spends ages checking each new thing out.
She is very relaxed and nothing seems to worry her. Her only fault is that she likes to wee in her wheel!!!

I'm hoping Humbugs markings will come back too now spring is on its way. Hopefully Henry's will too....my husband says its like having two hamsters for the price of one!!!

She's adorable! She has a friend in Henry, he also likes to wee on his wheel but he mainly does it in what I originally planned to be a sand bath haha. Henry isn't a fan of cleaning day, he refuses to sleep in his bedding the first day and just wants to be out of the cage all the time bless him. I'd be pretty grumpy too if I'd just got everything the way I wanted it and someone came and moved it around ha.

Henry loves coming out of the cage but we've learnt that it needs to be on his terms or he gets too anxious and gets the runs bless him. He's a rescue hamster, the past owner only had him a week and tried to handle him straight away then returned him to the shop because apparently he was biting too much. It's been a long process taming him but we're getting there. He nibbles the door to come out and then gives my hand a little nibble when he's ready to go back. Hopefully as time goes on he'll trust us a bit more, I hope his markings come back and Humbug's too

Henry sounds like a little sweet heart too.
Its great that you are getting to know him and being so patient with him. What a shame his first owners weren't - he is lucky to have you. I'm sure he trusts you more each day.
I think Humbug likes being white, she blends in really well with her bedding!!!
If they do change back I wonder if it will be the same as before or a little different!!
