Starting out.....  
Hey there and thanks for reading :-) I've not done one of these before and thought I'd give it a try. So please bear with me as I find my feet and any guidance you have is always appreciated. An introduction to my hamster experience follows, which I have taken from my profile on HC and amended a little.

When I was little my parents purchased for the family a hamster that we called Fluff. She was probably the best introduction possible to hamsters as she was fun to watch, inquisitive, content and beautiful. She never tried to nip and was happiest when out and about in an evening. With supervision she climbed the stairs and when tired would sleep in your lap, pocket or sleeve. Along came Pickle after that - completely different, very nippy and constantly escaping. Dad had to rescue her from behind the kitchen units once. Dopey (kept walking in to things - hence the name) was next folllowed by Aina and then Aina 2.

I had a long break from looking after hamsters and eventually when my situation allowed snuck a new one in to my life. So Conker arrived in September 05 and has been a joy to have. She likes a snuggle and smooth but doesn't like to sit still too much and would very much like to escape and investigate further a field. When we open her cage door for her to come out - she looks at us and then tries for the table :-) and possible adventure.

She makes us laugh and smile. She has had me in tears too as she has been unwell on and off for a number of months - although touch wood she seems to be a tad better now.

Our latest family member is Fuzee Fi. She came home from a hamster show in August 06 and has grown into a funny little thing. She's very distructive and really doesn't get a number of hamster related things - but then possibly that because she looks like she's decended from a polar bear :-P (she's not white but in certain light she appears to be and is often seen standing just like one).

So that's us arrived then. Now we will see how it goes.
