For those of you who have met me, you probably know by now that our house is basically a zoo with five kids and two adults running it. Today, we extended our grand menagerie of the animal kingdom: my youngest sister got a hamster. Freddy, the golden hamster, aka Freddy the noisy little guy who squeaks his wheel all night. He’s rather adorable, though, so we let him live.
This brings the entire animal count (both past and present) to 43:
- 5 hamsters
- 12 crayfish
- 3 beta fish
- 17 hermit crabs
- 2 turtles
- 2 rabbits
- 1 dog
- Dicky, the bug mentioned in my first post
I believe about 5 of the above-mentioned critters are still with us.
