Just the hamsters
okay so our readers were commenting that we have too many pics of Puffy, and there should be more pics of all the other 7 piggies. ALSO, our 4 hammies also feel pretty photographically neglected, so we're going to dedicate this section to our pretty girly hammies only
Here is little Fuffy enjoying her hammy house! She loves it!! I suspended her little house so she actually climbs up the bars and then hops right in . If I just put it on the ground, they like to tunnel underneath and turn it upside down, which looks very messy....
Fuffy especially likes how her hammy house has ears, just like herself!
Our dear Maisy went through a rough patch earlier on when she had a skin fungal infection. It was nothing severe, but she did have several bald patches on her belly and underarms. At first I was hoping she'd get better on her own, but with the hot/humid weather here, it only deteriorates.....
A visit to the vet cost $570 dollars......she was subscribed an anti-itch spray and hydroxyzine/atarax solution fed twice a day.....now she's all lookin' and feelin' betta!!
Should I add that the vet also told me she is "significantly overweight" . She had folds of skin under her arms.. Dr. Tiger put her on a Mazuri diet, and instructed she fed 3 different types of veggies everyday. So there she's having her lettuce, and here her carrot!
Remember when Goldy had a severe skin infection when we first got her? she was so terribly thin...look how healthy she is now! She even has matching green wheels and a green cuddle house
here is poor Goldy when she was sick, over a year ago. I didn't save the pics of her when she looked her worse, it was just too awful. Here's a back view of her back then, with her fur all thin and matted. Her hair was constantly greasy, which tells me it's a fungal infection, and that can get pretty nasty....that was my first expensive vet trip...
This is Goldy over a year ago as well, when she is all recovered from her sickness and eating her greens
Look how healthy she is now! Not to mention FAT
She loves her carrots, keeps her teeth trim
Oh, and for old time's sake, remember back then when Maisy and Fuffy used to live together? I love this photo, this is the first ever photo I took of our hamsters....see how sweet and tiny they were back then? They're both sleeping on the wheel, Fuffy makes a very cozy cushion pillow!!:D
Sadly, they had a falling out a few weeks later, since hamsters are afterall....solitary animals. But Fuffy hasn't broken her habit of snoozing on the wheel! Maybe she's dreaming of when she and Maisy used to be friends.....
and I even caught Snowy dozing on the wheel just yesterday, aww..
anyway, here they were, living together peacefully.
Fuffy does her morning stretching on the wooden monkey bars
oops, Maisy fell over!
Here they are, in another cage. Fuffy is in the back lol.
This is Maisy demonstrating how enthusiastic hamsters get when given a paper box with treats enclosed
So enthusiastic that sometimes they get themselves stuck during the process...
Here is our sweet sisters in the toilet together...
oh, and Fuffy is very agile athlete! She does monkey bars across the ceiling of her cage!
Look at those little hammy feeties!
I actually don't even know who this is, I THINK it is Creamy. She's sticking her nose through the air hole because she smells something!!!
Here ya go.
This is how fat and flabby out Creamy is...
Anyway, that's all the hamster pics I have right now, I'll take some more pics of their current housing. Our 4 hamsters live in 4 individual cages right now, they have a pretty good life. Sometimes I worry that they get lonely, but they don't seem to need a friend, they kind of lash out at eachother rather than snuggle up.
Jiffy continues to break Shirley's heart:
Previously, we see that Shirley tries to flirt with Jiffy:
But he already has someone else in mind!
This is Shirley about to sing "Sad movies make me cry" *SNIFF SNIFF*. To make matters worse, see what else she needs to witness
So Shirley runs towards Jiffy
smells hisbum....what a piggy-bum-smelling-train
"Ma! Jiffy doesn't like me!"
So grumpy Shirley retreats back inside her hidey house. And now look what's happening right on her doorstep! *gasp*
Oh dear dear dear, look at that beautiful face with that bushy white scarf....heartbroken! Just broken!
"Go away, Snoopy, you....BOYFRIEND STEALER!"..
Oh god...now they've taken up Shirley's house!
"and you! don't you daretake another step near me! You think you can just go do something like that right in front of me, and still have the stinkin' face to court moi?! I'll BITE ya!"
"what did I do wrong?"
