A Tale Of Two Hamsters

Two hamsters, both alike in dignity....


Sisters you see, and currently not the best of sisters either. Holly has been establishing dominance over Heidi, by fighting and biting and generally being a bitch. Behold! The culprit....



See! Beneath that white furry innocent exterior lies the heart of a bitey nuisance, imprisoned in an impromptu cage made from a plastic box. She will have her own proper cage, fear not fair and gentle reader. But for now tis best to keep her away from her sister....



You can just see Heidi poking her dear little nose out of her bedding, but what is not obvious is the scratches on her nose and the bites on her side, for which we made an appointment at the vet to get her looked over. When Holly still resided there Heidi would not come out of the house, and took to wetting her bedding rather than face her sister on a midnight stroll over the woodchips and round the toilet roll tube.

And so this afternoon, a brand new cage is being bought, possibly with tubes and things so dear little Heidi can run around and live a happy life free of her meanie sister (we're buying her off, don' wan 'er t' dob us t' the rozzers). And Holly will get the old cage and be punished by coming to live with me and my man, heh heh heh.

And there ends our tale of two hamsters.

Or does it?.........................................................................
