Everybodeeee, say hello to Pitong and Kiss Kiss!! 😀
Yes, that’s right, we now have two super cute hamsters to join the household (much to the aghast of my mom and mom-in-law).
The husband couldn’t contain his excitement yesterday after we dropped by a friend’s house, and they had hamsters. Therefore, we went to a shop in PJ Old Town to purchase the cage and food and bedding but unfortunately, they did not have much choice of hamsters. So off we went to One Utama, only to find out that the huge pet shop had closed down for quite some time.
All set on getting the hamsters, we drove to Ikano Power Centre and lo and behold, hamsters piled by the dozens!! Hahahahah!! Unfortunately, these dwarf hamsters are quite known to be a feisty breed. They tend to bite and you have to reeeeaaally look through the bunch to find the ones that do not bite.
Disebabkan suami terchenta nak sangat hamster tapi takut dengan hamster yang gigit, bini dia nih pun nekad la cari hamster yang TAK gigit untuk dia. I put my hand into the pile of hamsters and within seconds I had cute but crazy furry balls biting all over my hand. A bloody (literally) 10 minutes later, I found the perfect two hamsters which did not bite. ALHAMDULILLAH!! lol!!
Susah ok nak cari yang tak gigit! I did my research on the internet and apparently, if you manage to find dwarf hamsters that don’t bite, their offspring will be as gentle as they are too. Thank God for that. Oh yes, the ones I picked out are a couple, a male and a female. Hence, we foresee a brood of hamsters in the future. You can keep an eye out for that, I don’t plan on keeping them.
The husband had already picked out a name, as I mentioned in an earlier post, so the male is called Pitong. Don’t ask. I was given the sweet honour of picking out a name for the girl hamster so I named her Kiss Kiss.
The pictures above aren’t very clear, I’ll put up better ones later on when I’ve perfected the skill of capturing moving objects on still camera. Heheheh.. I’m not much of a photog.
Oh, and how are my two cats reacting to the new additions? Well, Lady hates the hamsters. Actually, I think she’s scared of them. I brought her to their cage and she clung on to me for dear life and started hissing like mad. Romeo on the other hand seem to find them absolutely amusing. Yesterday night, he sat and watched them for a whole hour. This morning, when I brought out the hamster cage, he continued his watch.
Here’s hoping that all goes well with the future of hamster-ful days! LOL!
