the care, cultivation, and breeding of crops and animals.
Alright, when you go to buy hamsters for your kids and the pet store offers one free for each cage you get they might be wrong. We got 2 cages and what we thought were 2 hamsters. The cages were assembled at the store and two hamsters that we picked from the four available were dropped into the two cages. The sales lady mentioned that they thought a couple of the hamsters might be pregnant that they had but weren’t for sure about it. She gave us tips about caring for them such as they need a quiet place to nest with the babies and not to touch the babies until they were at least 3 weeks old or the mother might eat them(HUH?!).
So we loaded our newest little animals into the car and headed home. The first night we played with them by putting them in the floor rolly balls and had fun watching them explore the house. Then yesterday we started our hamster training by putting a towel in the bottom of the bathtub and letting them roam one at a time. On this second day home we decided to let them explore in the rolly ball things again. Fluffy went right in its ball and had a ball! LOL BoomBoom Chewless on the other hand wasn’t as excited and had seemed to have built a very fluffy nest out of the bedding stuff in her cage. So I tried to put the rolly ball in the cage for her right in front of her and she wouldn’t budge. Then I took the lid for the ball and tried to skooch her in. Still she wouldn’t budge. Then she halfway climbed into the ball and lo-and-behold there were babies under her!!!!!!!!!!!!!! HUH?!
Yep, baby hamsters. Most people are able to bring a pet home and that’s that. Nope that’s not how it’s done around here! LOL
