pure madness

July 2, 2007

God forgive me for I have sinned. Remember my gay, fat hamsters? Well, as it turned out, they are neither gay nor fat. Evidently, one of them is a female *gasp*; and she just gave birth to four tiniest, pinkiest and quite gross-looking-fur-less baby hamsters! That definitely put her weight gain in a whole different perspective. I went crazy when I saw the little hamsters I even called my dad at work, congratulating him on his new-born grand-pets.

My exhilaration was uncontained. So I was terribly devastated when I learnt that the newborns did not make it pass the next day. Apparently these creatures need really thorough care to survive, which we clearly did not provide for, so all four of them died. It was the saddest thing. I was so looking forward to buying bigger cages and see the little ones running around but that doesn’t look like it’s going to happen anytime soon. Mimi seems to be suffering from a somewhat withdrawal syndrome. She doesn’t eat as much anymore. Neither does she run around as much. She keeps to herself most times, all cuddled up by the corner she used to nurse her little babies. I hope she gets over this soon and get working on the next set of babies. Little hamsters are just so freaking adorable.

On another entire madness episode; I caught up with my favourite crazy people last Saturday. Some people are just so exuberant it’s infectious. Who needs a good conversation with them around; mockery, sarcasm and crap remain the order of the day.
