About my hamster...
I have a hamster named Coco and she is a short - haired Mink Banded female Syrian hamster. She's nine months old currently, turning ten months on the 19th of February. She's a delight to have. From the first day she came home, she kept trying to come on my hands. She's such a cutie and a social little hamster. She loves Yoggies (Strawberry Yogurt Drops). She looks like this:



I also have had another hamster named Cutie who passed away...
She was the cutest little thing. She was very friendly but had her ways. When she didn't want to be picked up, she nipped or nibbled. Nothing severe. She also loved Yoggies and Sweet Potato Yummies.



Feel free to share your hamsters! :D

I have one hamster named Oswald. He's a banded sable syrian I believe.
He's almost completely nocturnal. He stays in his burrow all day and only comes out after I've gone to sleep so I only see him on rare occasions.

Ah I don't own a hamster but I think they're adorable and I have read a little bit about them :) It bugs me that so many people don't treat them that well, or think they are just childrens pets.
I can't wait to see all the pictures :D

To MinatureHorse~ Oswald is so cute! :eek: :p

CoyotePro~ I can't agree with you more! Hamsters actually require A LOT of care and picking up. They need a cage ABOVE 360 square inches. Some may think that they only need a place to sleep and run; which they think is one of those teeny tiny cages... But actually, they need more than that! I recently upgraded Coco's cage to this huge 600 something square inch cage! She loves it so far :D
Coco's new cage----

She loves sleeping in that see through green part and has already brought so much bedding up there! She has a bendable bridge and much more! There's a potty dome there, though she doesn't really use it because I didn't add the litter that it comes with since it didn't have a label so I didn't know if it was safe or not, so I just didn't include it. It also comes with a litter scooper (like a mini cat one.)
I really love how she just is so much more active and she's a joy to hold and watch :)
Just a funny picture of Coco----

There she was like three or four months; now she's turning eleven months on March 19th. Does any one have any ideas for what I should do for her year birthday? :D

I've definitely seen that cage picture before. You must also be on hamster hideout!
Maybe get one of those small gourmet dog treats that resemble human cookies/cupcakes for a birthday present!
