The Couple That Eat & Sleep Together

It has been a hell of 2 weeks coming since the relocation of the Hamsty. In the beginning, the hamsters were grumpy when they were downgraded to smaller cages (plus being deported) and then gloomy upon the realisation that this would be their fates (being abandoned). Skippy was super panicky as she is not used to travel. Scratch was the worst as he was being transported in a tin can (not enough tanks) and his face showed 'suicidal'. Scar on the other hand looked sad for the thought that he would go to a new owner again.

Fret not as the big hamster (Owner) also followed them to stay at the new location. So far, the disgruntled hammies have been protesting to the two owners every night because 1. Crampy space. 2. No wheels (except for Scar because the owner forgot to pack 4 more wheels).

However not all bad things happened. There are still good experiences deriving from this saga. Like how Skippy made herself comfortable in her new cage by creating a cozy bedroom with a curtain, and Scar defensively protecting his wheel (he refused to take turns to share the wheel with fellow hammies). The best part of this was the couple Herbie and Earl Grey. Back home as they were living in a mansion-like house, both of them never eat or sleep together since they each have their hideouts and food bowls. Now forced to a one-bedroom apartment, they have no choice but to eat and sleep together. I guess love blooms for them over this period. They are so loving together now.

Like the saying goes, the couple that eat and sleep together, stays together. =D

Sad to say, EG might not last that long now. He is past the 2.5yrs mark and is getting frail.

Our current hse is under upgrading and hence the reno.

I miss these little furballs now. They are still at co-owner's hse. Can't wait to get them back home.

After reading the post it is easy to understand that the dynamics of a human life are not so different from those of hamsters.
Fight, become individualized and sleep together.
