A Quick Update

Our apologies for being M.I.A. for so long. The Bear and I have been busy with work, home, and family issues. Things seem to be settling down, so hopefully this will mean regular posts in the near future.
The boys are doing well, as are their new "sisters" -- our hamsters Amora and Pandora. They are from Phin and Bobby's shelter.
Pandora (photographed on the left) was supposed to be a foster, but she was just too adorable to let go. She was surrendered by a student, and was named due to the fact she was trouble that came in a box labeled "Something Greek."

Both seemed to have suffered from a bit of neglect. Poor Amora (photographed below) had sores on her feet. Originally named Olympia, we renamed her Amora because of a heart-shaped pattern on her backside; amor in Spanish is love.

We'll be picking up a foster hammy this Saturday, and are still discussing whether or not to foster a piggy. Hopefully we'll be able to. In any case, there's plenty of pictures to come.

The shelter has been busy busy busy. Two of the three hamsters that recently came in gave birth and twelve guinea pigs arrived from Jersey City. So if you know anyone interested in adopting a hammy or guinea pig, drop a line or contact the North Jersey Guinea Pig and Hamster Rescue.
