We only found out (after devastating results), that MrGee should never have touched this baby hamster!
Let me back track ....... 3 weeks ago WizzKids Teddy Bear Hamsters gave birth to three lil' ones. The next day we could only find two....... we blamed it on a miss count! A week later the boys found the mother dragging around the upper half of a baby hamster. We seperated the male and female and put the baby with his mom.
Then we took this picture ......... MrGee is trying to act sad that we only have one hammy left!
Now the devastating news........... the boys found this lil' one today with his head eaten off! They were mortified!
We rushed off to the pet shop with the assumption that they must have sold us a couple of psycho rodents! The assistant explained that we are not meant to touch the young hamsters until they are totally weaned. If the mother smells an unusual smell on them she WILL eat them! Oh-dear............ we live an' learn!
BTW....... our Date was truly memorable. We went to a restaurant that was our favourite place to dine 10 years ago. We reminisced and enjoyed the most delicious french cuisine. Sorry no pics..... but that would be an invasion of our privacy Katie!!! hehe
