Anyway, Thomas has been pestering for his own pet for a while now. He really wanted a puppy but was happy to have a hamster, until he saw a beareded dragon at the pet shop and decided that was what he wanted. Thankfully, with a bit of gentle persuasion we managed to get him back on track for a hamster.
Mark's job was to make the cage, which wasn't quite as easy as we'd been told it would be. But it looks pretty spectactular doesn't it. Hamster accommodation has obviously improved since we had Hannah/Harry.
Meanwhile Ginny had a roll around the floor in her ball. Then we all had a little cuddle. Before putting her to bed.
Thomas has fed her, filled her water bottle, and made her bed. He's also managed to spill the entire bag of hamster food on the floor. And Breathe!!
No doubt I shall become surrogate mother within a week or two. But secretly, I don't mind. She's a cute little thing and I'm glad we've got her.
