Vingdragon making an appearance

He's still not the most sociable hamster ever, but I do manage to lure him out occasionally.


A little outing tonight, with a piece of bread for a snack.

A little outing in the sand box

Vingdragån finally got the point with the box of sand tonight. He was out & about as his cage was getting cleaned.

Evening snack

A few photos of Vingdragån's fur from last night. He's 5.5 months old now.

Tired hamster won't say hi

My parents stopped by yesterday and wanted to meet Vingdragån. It was 6.30pm, so really, he could have done them the favour of waking up. But he didn't! He didn't show his little face until 10pm yesterday, and even then he didn't exactly look wide awake :-D

4 months old

Vingdragon turned 4 months old yesterday and got some snacks to celebrate. He didn't like it though and just left pieces everywhere. :-D

I had to cut tangles out of his fur again yesterday, so he doesn't have the longest "skirt" right now.

Ikea to the rescue

My husband went to Ikea yesterday and bought plastic place mats for Vingdragån. 12 of them! Yes, a hamster needs plastic place mats - they make for great walls in an indoor enclosure for them! Hubby bought these: http://www.ikea.com/gb/en/catalog/products/80311244/

And Vingdragån had his first outing there last night. It's been hot the last few days with temps at +30 C, so I also finally got around to providing him with a sand bath. He was confused at first, but started digging in the sand eventually.

Easy to build with a little bit of tape and provides lots of room that the hamster can't escape from! I can leave him alone in there. :-)



And very very easy to store when not in use!!


A little video of Vingdragån's first encounter with sand:

Hamster not doing the expected

So, Vingdragån enjoys his occasional dried mealworm. I often hold the box by the cage door and he helps himself right out of the box.

Today he was ambling around on his roof, and I thought it would be a cute video to put the box of mealworms right there and let him have a go at it:
