Meet the new roomies.
Rocio brought four hamsters home yesterday evening. Four brothers. Two dark, two light — otherwise indistinguishable. So. The dark hamsters are now both Miguel and the light ones are both Carlos (in honor of fellow ITPer Charles who gave Rocio moral support, apparently, on the hamster issue). Now they live on the desk in our living room. They’re just a month old.
They have three modes:
So that’s about it. This evening I had them out for a while (one at a time) to play with while I watched a bit of television. They charge around, up and down arms, along the backs of chairs, around tables and desks. Fairly well-behaved, too, despite the occasional urination accident. The Carloses seem a bit more mellow, the Miguels a bit more spastic (although a Carlos bit me today — on accident, I think).
