Default Happy Gotcha Day Ozzy!

It's a year ago today i had a confrontation with a manager of a well known petshop because they insisted on selling dwarf hamsters in pairs only after the first lockdown. They had too many and operated a Lucky Dip system by putting a cardboard box in the tank and whoever walked in first was taken out. The customer was asked to wait by the till which i refused to do.

Our diabetic dwarf had departed to the rainbow bridge only a couple of days before and his habitat was sitting there empty so i decided to take a dwarf home.

As it turned out, Ozzy is naturally a loner and likes nothing more than his own company. He doesn't like out of cage time so i let him decide how he wants to live his life.

That's him yesterday morning.
Like Edwina's, his coat became a lot lighter and they look quite similar now aside from their size, Ozzy is bigger.

Thank you all!

Ozzy has always been a peculiar hamster. He doesn't do treats. Nibble sticks, millet sprays, shrimp cookie, monkey nut, you name it, i tried it but he mostly ignores them.

All the other hamsters love to try something new or a treat but Ozzy eats his dwarf mix, all his fresh veg, linseeds when he's in the mood and that's about it. He's always been like that so its impossible to spoil him. The only thing that disappears is a whimzee so i gave him a new one.

I've never really figured out what makes him tick but have stopped worrying about it. I used to worry that he's missing out on something.
