Smile I will be bringing a new friend home soon!

I just submitted an application for the hamster I mentioned in my last post and I am very excited! She's a syrian hamster (I think...the one photo of her only shows her head, but she definitely has a syrian type face) and according to the owner who surrendered her, she's two years old. Her name is Bertha, which I probably won't change because I think it's befitting an old lady like her

I've got my 800 square inch DIY all ready and I really hope she likes it -- it's a good old cage, but I haven't gotten to use it yet since my first hamster, Egg, decided it was way too small for her so she moved into an upgrade pretty quickly.

The shelter emphasized that they consider multiple applications for each animal, but I'm hopeful -- she's been there for more than two weeks now, which is longer than all the other hamsters I've seen come and go on Petfinder the last couple months. I really hope I'm able to give her a great however-much-longer she has. Wish me luck!

I got the call early this morning -- I'll be bringing her home tomorrow! I am very excited to meet her and see what she thinks of her new home. I just need to finish stapling the last of the mesh to the lid and secure it on and we'll be all ready for her

I do think it's funny that I am now 0-2 when it comes to adopting the sort of hamster I originally wanted. Before I adopted Egg, a female hybrid dwarf, I wanted a male syrian. This time, I was absolutely adamant that I wanted a male dwarf and I've ended up with a female syrian!

yippee, so happy for you.

I can so relate, I was meant to get a baby hamster from an accidental litter from the rescue and I ended up with a 2 year old female syrian Then i was going to get a male syrian, and I ended up with a female syrian. The heart wants what the heart wants I think these things work out for a reason.

Absolutely -- I have a big soft spot for syrians and I'm sure I won't have any issues loving her! I just wanted a hamster that would (in general -- it's never a sure thing, of course) have the best chance of being happy in an 800 square inch cage since we are likely moving house this year and I didn't want to have to make another cage that I would have to move. But I think her advanced age will be a point in the cage's favor. Either way, I'll do whatever I can to make her happy even if it inconveniences me a little
