The Hamster is a He
The girls have a new hamster. It - or rather she (we'll come on to that later) - is a gift from our gallery-owner friend who teaches them drawing once a week and, as an aside, got them into hamsters. Liz went out and bought a duplex cage complete with slide, wheel and bedroom - the height of luxury. The hamster's name is Xiao Bao, or Little Treasure, but the girls call her Snowy. Actually, the girls call her him, since they think all hamsters are boys. Not that you can tell. In fact, we've hardly seen him. So far, he spends all his time in the bedroom, which proves he's a girl. So here's a photo of the cage sans Snowy.
