No, I’m not pregnant!
But these are the new additions mashaAllah!
My husband and R are made about animals and have been bugging me (I am not an animal fan) to have a pet. We have fish but I just really do not like animals. We have a wonderful car boot sale that is not too far from us that I have found some fantastic home ed bargains at. Do check out where your local car boot sale is because you can buy some excellent stuff for like 50p or £1. For example, I bought a brand new GALT paper making kit for R for £1.50!!! Anyway, two weeks ago, we found a lady selling a hamsters cage with everything – grooming set, playing tubes, teeth grinder, playing tray, two sleeping huts, water feeder, exercise wheel and food pot all for….£5!! It was an absolute bargain. So, the next day hubby went on to gumtree and we bought two 3 week old Syrian hamsters for £5 each! All we then had to buy was the straw which was just over £1 and some food – again just over £1.
Z and R are thrilled to bits. They take them out of the cage all the time and as long as they close the door behind them and I’m not in the room I don’t mind. We told R that it is her responsibility to clean the cage weekly. And mashaAllah she did it. Their names are Sinan and Lala. I would recommend getting your kids a pet. Hamsters are easy, cheap and as long as you clean the cage weekly they don’t smell. If you buy them as babies then you won’t have a problem with biting as they get used to you.
I told R that if one of them runs off after her taking them out of the cage, THEY ARE GOING! Anyone who knows me, knows that I’ll be standing up on a table screaming lol
