Just wanted to say - I got hamsters! I'd been thinking about a getting a pet for a little while but I was limited in my options because of being in a flat. However I decided last week that I wanted hamsters - more precisely dwarf hamsters. I contacted the local hamster breeder, made arrangements with her, and bought all the necessary equipment.
Today, Rob and I went to the breeder's house to choose my hamsters. I chose two males. They are Winter White Russian hamsters and I chose a pair that had one white and one dark coloured hamsters.
They are called Zeus and Odin. Zeus (the white hamster) is a bit more active than Odin and likes running on the wheel.
I'm looking forward to them getting used to me and learning more about them.
