Default New Rescue Hammies

After seeing poor/unsafe living conditions at a local pet store for their Dwarf hamsters, I couldn't leave these two behind in a hamster "Thunderdome" with 25ish others who were not separated according to gender and varying ages. The first one is Muppet (umbrous black?)who is working on using a water bottle and getting stronger/older. She is just a hair shy of weaned it seems and extremely small. Fraggle, the slightly older one with side stripes/black back stripe, was cage pacing when I was evaluating the group. She might have a neurological issue, or a severe stress response. I hope that they do well! Muppet seems to have put on a little weight already Thank you for letting me introduce them!

Very cute, love the names so much. I might have to add them to my names list even though they have nothing to do with the cosmos or would muppets in space count

They are lovely and very lucky that you took them home.

That petshop sounds awful. I'm surprised they are allowed to keep so many hamsters together.

Thank you so much! Muppet is getting stronger every day and with Fraggle I am leaning towards her having a neurological issue. She either paces or just sits for the most part. Sadly the animal welfare laws in my state are pretty poor. They are the only store in my city where I have seen such a large number of hamsters together. Very frustrating!
