I caved to the pleas of my critters for critters of their OWN.
Meet the new pets. Tic on your left, Tac on your right. Roborovski Hamsters. Dwarves. Seriously cute. Seriously fast. And from what we hear, not nearly as stinky as their cousins.
The kids are BEYOND excited. It is a little terrifying for the hamsters, with all the poking fingers and screeching voices, especially because they are nocturnal and the kids wanted to play first thing this morning. Hopefully everyone will adjust. I do know this, any pets in the family, are in actuality Mom's responsibility, wish me luck. ;)
