Good news and bad news


Sure enough - I was right again.  HH (hooker-hamster) had another set of babies today.  What am I going to do?!?!?  This is ridiculous.  I am living in hamster hell.


I have some good news to report.  Remember this post?  And then this one.  Oh yeah, one more.

Well, I am happy to report that we are half way into adopting out these critters.  There are only 3 more that need to find new homes.  When they reached 4 weeks of age we separated the females from the males to the best of our knowledge, and I feel 95% sure we got it right.  

So now I bet you're wondering what the bad news is, right?  

Well, that other 5% makes me feel like we didn't do the separating soon enough.  

It appears that Momma-Sniffer may be "with rodent," as in expecting, aka pregnant.  Who knew we bought a hooker-hamster?  Seriously!  

Be on the lookout for birth announcement #2 in the near future and an eviction notice if this continues.



  1. That is hilarious! It's a full time job being rodent birth control!

  2. OMG, I am dying!!! You need to take that ho to Planned Hamsterhood and get her on some birth control. dang.

  3. What!!! That is all I could say when I read the beginning of your post!!! I can't even believe it! Well, I guess I can!!! Seriously, I think you need separate cages and rooms for those two!!!!!! Maybe I missed this in a previous posting, but how do you tell the males and females apart, if you don't mind me asking... do they have male and female parts?? Sorry!!! I must have slept through that animal anatomy class!!! ~Laura

  4. Hee hee hee. I'm still not taking any, but I love the idea of hamster hell!
