Default Meet Scarf

Last week ago I got another hamster!!!
There is so much of what has happened before getting my new hammy, so I'm sorry if this is going to be long.
I've been owning hamsters since I was 12. My first hamster Luna was a Syrian hamster and a year later I got another one named Johnny(they were kept in seperate cages).After they passed away(Johnny was 1 year and 2 months old and Luna was 2 years and 7 months old when she passed) I got 2 robos(Peanut and Hazel) , but after 6 months they got into a fight so I seperated them. Peanut passed last year and a few months later I got Cookie. This year during winter I moved and my room is so much bigger then it was in my previous home. Both Hazel and Cookie lived in tanks that had 465 sq in. A month later Hazel passed away.
Later Cookie got her new cage and I was left with a lot of space and 2 tanks.
Of course I started to think about getting another hamster.
My idea was to connect the 2 tanks and create 1 big tank(I didn't do it myself, I had someone doing it for me). I really wanted a Syrian hamster because I haven't owned one in 2-3 years. In my area there aren't any good breeders or shelters where you can adopt a hamster,so I was checking adds on the internet for 2 months but I had no luck. My only option left was pet store. I came to the best one I could find and my mom and I asked a lady if they had any Syrian hamsters for sale. The lady came to the cage and there were 2 Syrian hamsters. One was long haired and was white and grey and the other one was also a long haired but it was brown and white and that one reminded me of Johnny and Luna so much and I picked that one. So the lady got the box and started putting the hamster in the box and then the other shop worker came to us and asked us did we reserve those hamsters and told the lady she can't sell them. I was surprised but there is nothing you can do. I asked if they had any more Syrian hamsters and they said yes. I came to the cage and there were 2 hamsters one was a grey and white hamster(don't know the exact coloring) and another dark brown one and I picked that one.
So when I came home my mom looked at my new hamster and said "it looks like she has a white scarf around it" and that's why I named it Scarf.
I'm guessing it is a girl. She is really friendly and gets excited when she sees my hand and you can also pet her. She is not scared at all and wants to explore everything but she was a little bit careful at first. When I first put my hand in the cage after 3 days of bringing her home she came to investigate
She loves pumpkin seeds and she loves running on her wheel or taking naps in it.
I'm really excited to be a mom to this little girl.
Here are some photos (there aren't many because I didn't want to disturb her to much).

Ahh, Scarf is lovely. I love her little "spectacles " around her eyes. It's so nice that she was excited about your hand coming near her. Sounds like the pet shop gave her plenty of attention.
Looking forward to hearing more about her.

Congrats on getting your adorable Scarf - great name, btw. I enjoyed hearing how she came into your life and how you and your mum chose her very special name. What a lovely story. I love her coloring and her cute expression. She does look like she has spectacles and a scarf, lol. Scarf sounds so sweet, and I'm so happy that taming is going so well. I look forward to seeing more pics and hearing about your newest hammy whenever you have a chance and she settles in more. Have fun!
