The Birds and the Bees
Oh lord. No, that isn't a pink bean you're seeing, it's a baby Roborovski Hamster. I suppose we rolled the dice by getting two of them. But hey, the internet said that they live longer when they are kept in pairs.
Mama and Papa had a bit of escapee drama over the weekend with Papa being awol for around 18 hours. Guess he couldn't stand being around the pregnant lady anymore?
I discovered the pink bean as I was looking in their little tv house and I realized there was something pink and wriggling... and it wasn't either of the two "girls". I am so laughing right now.
Oh, and time to move Papa to some new digs. It seems that Mama can get knocked up again right away. I guess our computer room is too warm, hubby is reading a site that says that robos tend to breed in early spring/summer following the year of their birth.
Great googly moogly.
