adorable fluffies are the baby pictures for our two brother
hamsters, Joey (left) and Biscuit (right). Joey has banded charcoal
colouring, while Biscuit is a banded honey blonde. They have a whole
section of my website
for their very own which has tons of pictures and tidbits about their lives.
My husband gave me all my hamster stuff last year as Christmas gifts,
and then we went out to pick these guys out. They were still living with
their other brothers (and probably cousins and strangers as well) in the
"dollar bin" at our local PetSmart. They had just about reached snake
food age, but we did not want them to be sacrificed, and so chose them
instead of the younger ones. They were about two months old then. Their
first night they spent together snuggling in one cage, but brotherly
disagreements being what they are, we decided it would be in their best
interest to make them solitary bachelors. They have not minded since.
They live a happy life and enjoy our playing with them and having photo
sessions. They make me happy, and all my husband needs to do is give me
a hamster to make me smile. It works for him as well, as he very much
enjoys having a hamster sleep in his pocket while he does homework. Just
to watch them live their happy hammie lives, exploring the house in
their balls, inspecting our new cat, or snuggling in our arms as they
take the tiniest breaths and yawn before settling in, makes them worth
having as part of our family.
