I got a calico hamster!

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
I'm so happy!
I got a calico Syrian hamster today! I have been interested in calicos and torties for a long long time, always wanted one but before now have never seen one in person or found any available in this state... I picked out the friendliest one I could find, and brought her home. Now I just have to figure out how to get my kitten Church to leave the cage alone. He's never seen a hamster before, I haven't owned any in a few years... I guess if he gets too close to the cage he will get a nip on the nose or paw and learn to leave it alone--worked with my last cat and previous hamsters, anyway.

Here is my new pretty little girl (not named yet):

Technically they call her color Black Tortoiseshell with White, but many people call the ones with white calico instead.

I might name her Satsuki.

Awww, she's cute!

I used to have hamsters when I was growing up, I swear I had about 5 of them throughout my life, except mine would always escape

I would really love to have another one someday!

I read years ago that the pattern existed but have never seen one either. Very neat. Good luck on cat security.

Who knows, if I ever have the space to have a room I could keep just a hamster or two in I might even be tempted if I saw one like that.

I haven't decided yet on her name. I kinda like Callie, but I also like the names Satsuki or Rin.
