New roommate!

Nana and Luna meet
I found out where the noises are coming from! Tonight Papa let me play outside my cage and I climbed his shelves to gnaw on his books like usual. But this time instead of books I found another cage like mine. I thought that perhaps Flan had come back, so I went to take a look. At first I didn't see anything interesting, but there was a cute smell. I think it's the same smell that I noticed on Papa's hands.

I was investigating around this cage when a small grey ball of fur moved and came to the corner where I was. It was a small girl. Papa told me that her name is Luna and introduced us. She sniffed me through the bars and I sniffed her. She's ALMOST as cute as I am. But it looks like she's shy, because she went back to hide inside her nest. I wanted to play with her, but Papa put me again in my cage.

Tomorrow I will climb here again and see if I can play with her!

Aw so your home is not haunted. You have a friend. I hope you can play with Luna soon!

finn on Thursday, June 15, 2006:

if luna is shy, maybe you can coax her out of her shell with treats. remember the sweet bread crumbs you found in the wastebasket when papa was not looking? -i bet luna would love those...

Thank you so much for this wonderful web site. I've never known any hamsters, so it's a treat to get to know yours this way.

Nana - try giving Luna some nice fresh pasta. Perhaps she'll try to trick you into giving her more. Or no, that's what you do to your papa, right?! :-)

why cant hamsters live together in the same cage?
like a couple!

Javi Lavandeira on Saturday, June 17, 2006:

Fate: syrian hamsters (like Nana, Luna or Kumanoko) are very territorial. They have to live alone or they will fight. A male can meet the female only when she's in heat. As an example of what may happen, one night that I thought that Flan was in heat I let her and Baru play together in the floor of the room. This is what happened:

So remember: syrian hamsters need individual cages.

Dwarf hamsters can live together in the same cage.

Take a look at these pages:

awwww. i completely missed this entry. that's good that you found out what the noises were Nana. and now you may have a future friend!! hehehe.

I'm so glad you have added another sweet baby to your brood. Both are adorable! Since they are so territorial - can they play together for lengths of time supervised? I know with dogs and cats the attitude can change in a heartbeat. A seemingly happy play session can, on occasion go south very quickly. Injury can happen before you even have a chance to intervene (though usually this aggression is only with visiting animals. I've never had it happen with critters who were raised together). Is it like that for Syrian Hamsters as well?
