Bye bye babies.

We've given away the baby hamsters. The first went to a man who was going to surprise a five-year-old boy with it. The second went to a family with a two-year-old.

We had a debate at the last minute about whether to give away the baby or the mother, but we stuck with the original plan. The baby was really docile. We'd take it out of the cage, and it would walk slowly around, not in a hurry to get away. Its mother acts more like attempted escape.

At less than seven weeks old, the children seem nearly full grown. There's still a noticeable difference between mom and child, but it's hard to see without picking them up. The baby has longer fur, and all the fluff makes it look bigger.

I'm sad to see them go. It was fun watching them grow, and I feel like we raised them even though we really just watched.
