I got a new house!

Wednesday, February 21, 2007 - Posted by Luna
When Nana left Papa gave me her wooden house. That house is fine when the weather is good because I can build a small nest inside. But now it is a bit cold and the small nest wasn't warm enough. I had to build a big nest outside of the house using lots of tissue paper. I chose the corner under my wheel. I think that my wheel got angry about that, because she didn't want to move anymore after I built my new nest under her. Maybe she's a bit grumpy.

Anyway, that problem is solved, because Papa gave me a new house. It is a big cardboard hamster house. Papa says that it can be used also as a shoe box. As if someone would want to waste such a nice house by putting shoes in it!

This is my new house!

When Papa brought the new house he put some wood shavings inside it and lots of tissue paper. I inspected it and it looked good. It needed more shavings, so I moved some of my bedding inside of the cardboard house. Then I built a very big nest in it.

And this is my new nest. It is very comfy.

Now I'm very happy with this new house. It's warm and dark inside. I keep some of my food in it too. Aren't you jealous?

Big food pellets

Luna eating food pellets
Yesterday Papa brought home a new kind of food pellets. They're like the normal pellets that come with my favourite food mix, but MUCH bigger. I could only fit four in my cheek pouches. I had lots of trouble trying to put the fifth one inside. I kept trying, and trying and still there wasn't any way I could put it there. But I wouldn't give up easily.

In the end I had to give up and hold it with my teeth while Papa brought me back to my cage.

Come on, Papa! Put me back in my cage! I can't hold it anymore!

Papa, I think it is play time already...

Papa, are you there? Look, I'm waiting...

Are you coming or what? I'm getting tired of hanging here.

Ok, that's better. Now leave me on the bed and you can go back to the computer.

Looks like today it's my birthday

Luna's birthday present
Tonight when Papa came home he told me that it is my first birthday today. I don't know what this birthday thing is, but it must be something good because Papa brought me a present. It was a strawberry. I had never eaten this thing before and I got very happy.

I decided to eat it in my nest, so I took the strawberry in my mouth and started walking on Papa's computer desk, but I couldn't find the way to my cage. Finally Papa took me and put me there. I went into my nest and started eating the strawberry.

Oscar got a strawberry too, but it was too big for him. He ate part of it in front of his nest.

I hope I will have more of these "birthday" things this week, because it looks like it is cool!

We are back!

Oscar inside Papa's camera bag
Hello everybody, we're back. We didn't write for a long time because Papa had to study for his exams, then he went to Spain and after that he was busy with his work.

Luna and I were getting upset because we have many things to tell you. I decided that I would try and learn to use Papa's camera so I could take photos myself. I went inside Papa's camera bag, but I couldn't find it there. I will try again some other time, because it was a fun place even when the camera wasn't there.

By the way, we ordered Papa to update the design of our website because it took him so long to post. Now you can click on our profiles on the right to read more about us. What do you think about the new version?
