My previous hamster

I have talked about in post, The talk of fur babies of the possibility we may have a hamster, as well as possibly guinea pigs if the room that I would like to give them. But a hamster may be more likely on the cards. Especially with the enthusiasm my mum shown, when she asked me would I have one again.

I thought I would share with you photos I have of my previous Syrian hamster, who I named Bubbles. These are only the photos I have of her, that are in my scrapbook album, which I have taken a photo of, to show. Apologies for grainy photos, but that was down to what ever camera I was using at the time.

My hamster who I named Bubbles. Her coat was white and golden brown, with slight darker brown colours.

Hamsters may only have a short life span compared to other pets, but the joy and love I had for this little thing was just the same as I have had for my other pets. If I was to be a hamster owner again, I would have another Syrian hamster.

The talk of fur babies

When my mum stopped over for the night over the Easter holidays, we were talking about one day when we would have a fur baby. This conversation was started by my mum in this ocassion and we have talked about fur babies before.

We would both like to have another cat, but it’s not going to happen now.
Mum is in no position to lift heavy bags of cat litter, let alone carrying a cat carrier.
I don’t want to carry cat litter either. Not even using a shopping trolley and my budget does not stretch to having groceries delivered to the home, where the cat litter could be added to that shopping list, as I once did some years ago.
I also don’t want to go about carrying a cat carrier no more either. I haven’t forgot how I struggled with the cat carrier in the final year of having Miley. And when Miley was ill, which meant several trips to the vets, which if it wasn’t for a friend supporting me in this, I would have struggled, because I wasn’t well. I don’t want to worry now about that area anyone.

So if there is room, I discussed possibly guinea pigs as a pet, which mum doesn’t mind. But mum wondered whether I would consider a hamster again. I certainly would consider a hamster again.

I said to mum which ever fur baby we have in the home, we would have as soon as we are settled in living together. I want us to settle first, before owning another pet. But it was nice to talk about it, as something for us both to look forward to.
