the petting zoo grows…

Posted in lovey, pets, video games, weekend at 8:48 pm by riseyp

i got two russian dwarf hamsters yesterday and have been enjoying their company very much ever since.

their names are Winkle and Abalone, and they are black and grey, respectively. Winkle is a cute little boy who loves to run on his wheel and is quite tame. Abalone is a really pretty pearly color, bigger, a female, and neither tame nor very nice to her cagemate.

of course the cats are very interested in the new arrivals!

i wrote this email to J today in response to his report from the blurb Tahoe Cabin..

Hi lovey,

Thank you for your note and letting me know how your day went so I don’t worry about you too much.

I had a nice and pretty uneventful day, consisting of a drive through Alameda looking at pretty houses with my mother, followed by coffee at Starbucks, then an hour or two of Viva Pinata (which is cute but the tutorial portion interrupts you too much to explain things whether you want them explained or not), topped off with a nice long nap. This was interspersed with looking at the lil guys and feeding them bits and pieces of things the internets say they might like. The food items they’ve enjoyed most so far are little nibbles off my organic brown rice snax, with whole raw pumpkin seeds coming in at a close second.

The kitties had a brief-ish Outdoor Adventure, while I watered the backyard. They aren’t as obsessive about the lil guys today, it seems.

I need to go to the pet store now for a better wheel. Oh, and the little grey girl hamster, Abalone, was the active one in the middle of the night and for part of the morning, while little black-with-white-paws-and-tummy Winkle has been very quiet so far today in comparison. So it looks like they are turn-takers when it comes to bouts of frenzied-but-delicate activity.

Love you honey bunny boo,
M
