6 bundles of fur

Did you think I was kidding when I told you about this?  

I almost wish I was, but no, it is true.  Our home has been increased by 6.  When researching dwarf hamster breeding I found that a litter size can range from 1 to 10.  Since we didn't even know the momma was pregnant I figured she would have one, maybe two babies, but she sure surprised us with 6!

It's been over 10 days now and they are starting to crawl around and look like little mini dwarf hamsters.  Sounds a bit ironic, mini-dwarfs.  They also make these cute little squeak noises.  

I have already told Taylor that we cannot keep 8 hamsters - that is just insane.  I may let him keep one, but the others have got to find good homes in about 3 weeks.  

Do I have any takers?  Just take a look at how darling they are.  I know you can't resist! 

(Seriously, email me if you're interested)

  1. Um, very cute. But do I want one? No. Oh, and if you ask my kids I'll have to do something rash. :)
