Talking Meet Sock

Meet Sock! I adopted him yesterday. He's currently six weeks old and I think he's a campbell / winter white hybrid but I'm not too sure. He's been tamed a bit already and he doesn't mind me sticking my hand in the cage but then just ignores my hand, so I'm not going to bother him too much for now.

I'm keeping him in an Alaska cage, which still needs a few small things (my package has been delayed.. should get it tomorrow) but he's very fond of his wheel and made a hideout by burrowing so he doesn't seem to mind!

Here are some photos:

Little Sock update: he's a little more skittish than yesterday. When I put my hand in the cage with a treat he went to hide behind a house and just stared at my hand. When I put the treat down and closed the cage, it only took about a minute or so for him to unfreeze and come claim the treat.

He's still getting used to his environment because sudden sounds scare him, but you can definitely tell his breeder has already done some taming with him. Especially with Jupiter who I had to tame from level 0, with Sock it feels like I'm starting at level 2.

With more handling and talking gently to him and lots of treats he'll only get better!

He's really adorable. I have a huge soft spot for Winter White hybrids.

He is so cute it's really hard to not sit in front of his cage and watch him for hours on end. Right now I'm trying to give him his space so he can get adjusted but I can't wait till I can hold him

Sock is so cute! Lovely little hamster. Have you tried to tempt him with a dried mealworm? My dwarfs are always on the lookout for them.

I have! He'll try and get close but then changes his mind and backs away again. It's okay though, just needs time.
