Hamsters coming of age.

The babies are doing well in their own cage, living without the mother who killed their sibling. Since they're "all grown up," we're more comfortable handling them. They're skittish, hard to keep a hold of, but they're really cute. I love it when they get on the exercise wheel together! It only moves when they cooperate.

We can take Baby out and play with her again too. Now that she's not pregnant, she's more docile and comfortable with us. I really enjoy holding her.

In both cages there's now more food than the weight of the hamsters. I saw one of the babies sleeping in a box of food much larger than it was, and I tried to imagine that. I picture myself sleeping in a hot tub full of cheeseburgers.
