Then yesterday Thomas got round to taking apart her old cage and washing it out. Of course, this is so she can go on holiday to auntie Linda's house if we should ever win enough on the lotto to drag the seven of us away to the sun.
Amaia, on the other hand, had got it into her head though that it was because we needed it... for another baby hamster. Hmmm... Not only had she decided this completely independently, but she'd also imagined this one would be a baby boy hamster who would be called Humphrey and would one day become Rosie's boyfriend! There seems to be quite a lot of assumption involved!
So her little face dropped somewhat when she bounced in and asked if today was the day we were picking up Humphrey and we all looked blank!
Nice try, Amaia!
