Our new family addition

Our new family addition

There was alot of excitement in our home yesterday. A friend, Roz, was bringing us a new pet, a hamster! Joshua of course didn’t know what a hamster was, but Matthew does and he was besides himself! When we got her, she was hiding under some tissue paper in her little hamster house, and Matthew couldn’t see her so he was being a bit grumpy.

Eventually I managed to coax her out and she is just the cutest little thing! She is a grey and white coloured dwarf hamster, and has such a gorgeous little nature on her. We named her “Remi”, after the main rat character in the movie Ratatouille.

Matthew and Joshua each had a chance to hold Remi a few times. The boys were jumping out of their skin with glee! It was so cute watching them. 🙂 I had to put her back in her cage and Matthew threw a huge tantrum because I didn’t allow him to put her in the cage. Good grief, so I promised him I’d teach him how to put her back in the cage without hurting her little body.

Remi is such a sweetie, when you call her she pokes her little nose through the cage bars and sniffs a bit, looks you up and down and sideways, and scurries off to her little hideaway. I love her!
