up to my elbows in hamsters

Post by scaredymouse on Sat 17 Jun 2017, 1:20 am

I'm 3 hamsters richer than i was last week.  I got Chip from the Pipsqueakery, the little guy from Florida.  Then i fostered some hams for a week and one of them stole my heart.  And well, i couldn't very well let him leave with it!  So, i kept him.  And then a little robo with a bad eye was surrendered to me.  

sooooooo, i have a lot of hams.  Also, i already said i would take a baby Chinese ham in a couple weeks.  I think I'm over capacity!

Yes, we definitely need pictures when you have a spare moment! lol

I was meeting a baby guinea pig at the shelter, and they also had a bunch of baby hamsters! They were being so cute, my husband practically had to carry me out of there to get me away from them. Giggling

In addition to the bad-eye Robo, what breeds are the other two?

Alright, here we go!  

The little robo is adorable, bad eye and all.  He's not responding to medication, so we're off to the vet on Monday... presumably to have the eye removed.  Gross!!!!

The little black Syrian is Sugarbear.  He's the little guy that stole my heart.  He's the best.

The other ham is Chip from Florida.  He's a scared baby and he screams a lot but he's going to be okay.  He's doing better already.


My Chippie <3










Sugarbear <3








Nobody taught this poor robo how to make a proper nest.  He sleeps right in the middle of the tank uncovered!

They are all so sweet looking! I love the two syrians, they look so tame and happy. And aw, the poor robo, does he have a name? How did someone surrender him to you, are you like actually listed as a rescue? If so, that's cool! I tried putting ads in Craigslist once saying I would accept any female mice (I'm not allowed to adopt/buy anymore males because they are smelly Sad) but no one responded except one person who was too far.

I'm not listed anywhere, but word of mouth got out I guess. Now whenever anyone I know sees a really needy ham or mouse, they contact me and ask if I can help. I usually can. It makes it easy for me. I kinda figure that if they find their way to me, then it's meant to be. The mother of the girl who brought me this robo, was going to just toss it is a field to get rid of it. Poor little robo.

It's funny, I was told the robo was a female and she had a name when I got her. But um, she is actually a HE. So, I haven't really picked a name yet... But I'm thinking Captain Jack, Mike Wazowski, or Peepers. You know, because of the eye! Or maybe Otis. He's so darn cute. I hope the vet can help him, his eye is baaaaad. And eyes freak me out. It's my nightmare that it will just pop out. Blech!

Love "Mike Wazowski"! Monsters, Inc is one of my all-time favorite animated films Heart

Awwwwwww, they are all soooooooo cute!!! I feel so bad for the little robo. I'm so glad he made his way to you! Do you know what originally happened to his eye? I am disgusted that the woman was going to throw him in a field - how inhumane!!!

What a cute bunch of lucksters! But ee, eye troubles are scary. We got my kitty in to have her enucleation surgery just before it ruptured. (And then again when it was time to let her go.) Fingers crossed for your little guy! Good vibes

I like Mike Wazowski. And Otis! Pardon

Well, the robo has a name, its Gunther.  And he went to the vet today and as i suspected, needs to have his little eye removed.  Probably on Thursday, when the boss lady vet can do it.  She's worth the wait, she did my hamster Lucy's eye surgery a few years back. The eye is just so small, it's such a delicate surgery.
