I hope everyone is doing ok and life is treating you well?
Thought it about time I stuck my head to say hi, seeing as it's been a few months since I was last in here. I still have Clara and Eliza, my two little girls, they are the only mice I have now and they are about 14 months old. I also have my Skinny Pig (his name is actually Bubbles but he's soooo fat he has definitely earned the nickname ;) ) and until recently, just one hamster, Davey, left. Anyway one day last week I was in the garage queuing to pay for my diesel when a woman swept in and stood behind me in the queue whilst talking very loudly on her phone about how she just had to get rid of the hamster. She was off to the petshop with it but if they couldn't take it so-n-so had said to just leave it outside otherwise. I couldn't risk that happening, knowing that would mean certain death for it so I stopped her and said if she had a hamster she didn't want I would have it. She had the little mite in the car with her and could not hand it over fast enough when I offered to take it...
My friends have all been joking about how only I could go to the garage for diesel and come home with a hamster but hey ho. She's a dear little thing. We called her Sammi the Hammy. The woman had only had her for two weeks but she couldn't stand small furry things and her daughter was scared of it and didnt like it being anywhere near her (whoever it was in that family thought it was a good idea to get a hamster needs their head examining!) She's a little chinese hamster and very pretty. I'll post a photo up later. At the moment she is still in the cage she came in, a Ferplast Paula, but once I get around to rearranging some furniture there is an 70cm cage sat empty in the loft she can have. The foster rabbits Bertie and Biggles, moved out just before Christmas. I took on an emergency foster dog who took rather a liking to the rabbits so my friend, who I had been looking after the rabbits for (since April 2015!) finally managed to make room at her place for them.
In other news I am back to being a four dog household again after losing five between May 2015 and Feb 2016. At the end of January last year we added Bobby, a sprocker puppy to the house, my partners dog Sky, a sprollie, arrived in March and about 3 weeks ago we welcomed an 8 month old springer (all the way from Northern Ireland) whom we called Riley into the house. I still have my dear old lady Kaz, another springer who is now 17 and still going strong :x All the ratties have now crossed the Bridge and I lost Molly, my elderly ham a few months back and just before that Stitch sadly passed away too. I posted it on here already but Katy's other hamster, Meeko, also crossed the Bridge earlier in April of last year as well. She's taken quite a shine to Sammi though, which I am pleased about.
Oh, and at Christmas I also got engaged. So yes, been quite a lot going on here one way or another.
Now... what have I missed???
The Pink Paw Gang are back in town! 2 mice, 2 hamsters, 1 guinea pig, 2 springer spaniels, 1 sprollie and 1 sprocker. Is this what you call a multicultural house :)
