We have a New Family Member

Say hello to Benjamin Franklin, Ben for short. He is a Siberian Dwarf Hamster we adopted at our local Petco from a local shelter. He is enjoying life at our home and gets fed very well and a whole lot of love from both the princess and Miss Sunshine. Miss Sunshine does keep trying to set him free but we find him since he know how good he has it and has a favorite hiding spot already in the girls room.

Tina, the tortoise, finds Ben rather amusing. We have let her sit next to his shelter and watch him run around. They both share some of the same taste in foods (lettuce, hay, etc) and they both like to dig but that is about where the similarities end.

Now to just get Miss Sunshine to stop asking for a parrot ;-)

Aw, he's cute. I never had a gerbil or hamster or anything like that - can you believe? Doesn't just about everyone??

I'll post up about Autism Awareness month as soon as I have time to post again :o Long crazy work time at the moment, but I swore I'd take a bit of time to get some blogs at least READ!
