Of my sanity...(or lack thereof) meet Minnie and Molly...
Ever heard of a "Robo Hamster"? I hadn't. Not until my Little One called from PetSmart... "Mommmmm, they're SOoooOOOOoooo cute..."
Me..."I am NOT going to take care of yet another critter."
Her... "I know, I will take care of her, she is just sooooOOOOOOOoooooo cute."
Me... "I will NOT take care of it. I will not feed it. I will NOT water it. I will NOT change it."
Her... "I know, I will. They are sooOOOOooooo cute."
Me... "I am NOT going to take care of it."
Her... "I know, I will, they are just soooOOOOooooo cute."
You know what they really are? As an adult, they are only two inches big. They are social, IF they have been together since birth, otherwise, they can be mean, and they will attack.
Well, of course they can be, if you were only two inches as an adult, the world would be a big, scary place, you'd be mean too...just to put up a front.
On the up side, the dog OBVIOUSLY is not going to attack anything, so at least we'd have an attach hamster. A two inch big attack hamster...
They are also fast. Darned fast.
Again, you would be too if you were only two inches, you'd have to have some means of getting away from predators, especially if the mean act didn't work.
Minnie came to live with us first. She came to stay on Tuesday evening, after that "They're sooooOOOOoooo cute" phone call.
She really, REALLY missed her sister. They'd been together in the pet store, and I have to presume, since they got along well there, since birth.
She moped. She was sad. Did I mention that they are fast? So fast you really don't get the chance to snuggle and comfort and become their bestest new friend?
So, yesterday, the Little One and I went to PetSmart. Sure 'nough, the other little one was still there.
She was moping.
She looked sad.
Can we say "sucker"?
Molly was reunited with her sister last evening.
I am NOT going to take care of them though...
(Y'all feel free to start taking bets as to how long it will take...)
