This is Chunky, the Girl’s newest pet … the tiniest of tiny hamsters.
Hamster, mouse… how do they know?
Sir Chunky is staying with us temporarily until the Girl arranges suitable lodging at her place.
At least that’s what she SAID. There WAS that $20 pinned to his cage….
Anyway, so far I’m finding hamster/mice to be unsatisfying pets. They hide under their bedding and sleep all day, and emerge only in the dead of night for some midnight hamster-wheel spinning.
The cats are intrigued. Riveted, one might say.
We have him safely out of reach … we hope!
