Hamsters – The Big Surprise

These are the babies about 2 days after they were born. The bigger baby is actually Pipsqueak, hoping to get some more attention from his mom, Pepper, who is the adult hamster you see in the corner.

As I told you in the last post, I have a big surprise for you guys. And that surprise is . . . babies! I woke up at 3 am on Wednesday morning, May sixth to a squeaking noise from the hamster cage. I assumed Salt and Pepper had just got into a little scuffle, so I went back to sleep. I woke up at my normal time at 6:30 and went over to check on the hamsters. I saw a little pink thing up against the glass that pepper was sitting on. At first I didn’t know what it was, but then I saw another little head poking out from under Pepper. I went and got my mother and showed her the hamsters. “Hey, Mom, guess what happened!”
“What, Ruby?”
“Pepper had her babies!”
Then my big sister Carmelita came in, asking what had happened. I told her, and we tried to count them. We could only count 2 or 3. I had known Pepper was pregnant since I got her, but I hadn’t known she would have her babies so soon! I returned home as fast as I could from school and immediately rushed to the hamster cage.Pepper was finally off her children, and now I could count five! I couldn’t believe I was so lucky to have 5 more hamsters, and they were still so young!
