Apple fingers

Small wonder Baltasara would bite - we use apple scented hand soap in this house. I have now bought unscented hand soap and have used it for a few days. So far it works! :-)

A few photos of the little monster from last night:

Baltasara in slowmo

Baltasara bites. It's annoying, but she has only lived here for a week and I hope to stop her from biting by following google's advice to blow lightly in her face whenever she does it... It hasn't stopped her yet, but some day she should realize that I only bring food, I am not food.

Today I filmed her in slowmo just because I can. :-D

Socks. Nomnomnom!

Baltasara is a biter. She nips and bites and tests everything with her teeth. And she is completely crazy about my woollen socks!

Houses are for wimps

Baltasara moved into a brand new cage with no less than two different houses for her very own personal use, but she chooses the digging tower. Of course.

New home, new name!

Today Hamsterhiets Gaia moved in and I changed her name to Baltasara! Our new hamster was supposed to be called Baltasar II, named after trilltrall's childhood hamster, but she's a she. So Baltasara it is. :-)

She was born April 24. She's a purebred Black-Eyed Argente ("Sandy") Campbell's dwarf hamster.

New hamster!

Today I agreed with the breeder Hamsterhiet that I will pick up my new hamster this Thursday. She is Hamsterhiets Gaia Dragasdatter, on the right below (photo from Hamsterhiet):

This time we are going for a purebred Campbell's dwarf. :-) The new cage will be delivered tomorrow, so all will be ready for Gaia to move in on Thursday!

RIP Vingdragån

Tonight I found Vingdragån dead in his house. He seemed old these past few weeks, but not ill. He only lived to be 1 year and 5 months old, which is surprising. I was hoping he'd be around for at least two years.
