Hamsters In The House

As you already know, for Christmas, Z and I got two Chinese dwarf hamsters. They have been a lot of fun so far, and Z and I play with them everyday.

From the start, Z has been the most confident handler, while I tend to pet them as they roam around in their play pen. Z carries them around and even lets them crawl on his shirt. I guess I was more affected by their first day home, when I attempted to pick up Cinnamon and she ran under the couch...Twice! Finally, though, I can successfully hold them without getting nervous.

One of the most fascinating things about Cinnamon and Turbo is their obsession with the two wheels in their habitats. They spend almost all of their time running, climbing, or sleeping in either the big wheel or small wheel. Daddy keeps saying that we should find a way to convert their energy so we can use it to power our house!

We used to have to close our doors at night because the wheels make so much noise when Cinnamon and Turbo are running, but now that we keep the habitats in the kitchen, it doesn't bother us any more.

In conclusion, I have to say that hamsters are a lot more fun to have around the house than I expected...And they are super cute!
