So today was supposed to be a usual day for us, we were heading out to do my weekly food shop and as we head to the store where we shop we have to go past a charity shop. As we were passing the charity shop my Mum spotted a hamster cage with all accessories. My kids had been pestering me for a hamster for the longest time but I always put it off because I was unable to get the right kind of cage I wanted. Today we found that cage and snapped it up like a shot and then after we had done our weekly shop we headed out to get the food and other things for the cage before getting the hamster and bringing it home. It was a little stressed at first due to being moved but spent a good hour at least running around the cage, pulling it's bedding into the little house it has before falling asleep and has slept ever since.
I remember when I was a kid me and my brothers had a hamster and it used to be so fascinating watching it eat storing all it's food in it's pouches and moving things around in it's cage. Watching it in it's hamster wheel was just as fasincating as well. So far our hamster hasn't been in it's wheel but we expect it to be a little more active tomorrow after sleeping much of today.
