Meet Cinnamon Roll, my baby hamster


Hello, my loves! Today, I want to introduce you all to someone very, very special - my little Syrian hamster, named Cinnamon Roll. We got him just over a week ago (it was an early birthday present from my partner), and I love him so much that I just couldn't wait to share with you the happy news! Cinnamon Roll is currently about 10 weeks old, and it is the cutest, fluffiest bundle of joy that I've ever seen!

A sneak peek of the current cage. :) 

Me and my boyfriend always wanted to keep a pet, and a little Syrian hamster seemed like a perfect addition to our family. We wanted to give him the most amazing home possible, so we invested in a large Living World Green Eco Habitat tank, which is 95cm wide and 49cm high, giving him lots of room to run around and explore. We also bought him lots of toys, places to hide, an exercise wheel (which I recently upgraded as the initial one ended up being too small!), food and treats. It's still work in progress, and I would like to eventually give the cage more of a theme (I'm thinking maybe a woodland or rainforest theme), but I think it's a good start. Let me know if you would like to see a more detailed hamster cage tour!



The minute I laid my eyes on this little hamster, I knew he was the one I wanted to get! He was all curled up in the corner, shy and super adorable. We've been getting to know him over the past week, but it's still early days. For now, we're just giving him space and letting him adjust to the new environment (as much as I'd love to just go ahead and give him a proper cuddle!).

So far, Cinnamon Roll seems to be adjusting very well to its new home. He's super curious and loves to explore his cage, which is so heart-warming to watch! He's still a little shy and quite easily startled, which of course is completely expected. He's made a nest and moved his toys inside one of the wooden houses, which seem to be his favourite spot to hide and rest. I've read up quite a lot on taming hamsters, and whilst they're naturally quite curious and friendly, we're being patient and taking things slow. I have yet to handle him properly, but it's okay as we just want him to fully adjust to his new home!



I hope you enjoyed this post, and please let me know if you'd like to see more updates from Cinnamon Roll's life! I am thinking of creating an Instagram page for him, and perhaps preparing some homemade hamster treats - let me know if you'd like to see a post on that! :)

What pets do you have? Please, tell me all about them! :)
