Enough said, I don’t need to say anything, the actions tell a thousand stories! This is our little old man Ginger Biscuit the 3rd (also know as Cookie.
Cookie is our rescue Syrian hamster. We got him in October 2019 and we were told he was roughly 6 months old. We are starting to see him slowing down, and noticing signs of old age, however he is still quick off the go to get to food or one of his favourite whimzee treats. We even found a hole in the back of his house where he had chewed himself a back door!
We will all be devestated when this beautiful old man leaves us to cross the rainbow bridge as he is so gentle, he even sits on the kids knees and lets them handle him, and kids are not always gentle.
This is Miss Izzi one of our beautiful cats. Izzi is a long haired British house cat, and she sheds like crazy. She also doesn’t know how to pad without retracting her claws, so I get scratched to pieces while she has cuddles. Today I didn’t use the blanket over me, so I look like a white and brown fluff ball!
Izzi and Yoda (her brother, I will include a photo of him later) were taken away from their mum too early. Because of this they didn’t learn to pad with their claws retracted, so we become a human pin cushion when they pad us. They also didn’t learn to groom themselves properly. We quite regularly have to shave big clumps of hair from her side, back, tummy and bum, which she doesn’t like, but it’s a necessity as they get really big and really tight.
Both cats are roughly 9 years old, and as of now they are both doing really well. Sure, life would be easier without them (sometimes they pee on furniture/the floor etc) but we love them just the way they are!
Just for good measure, here is Ginger Biscuit the first, aka Cookie, our Syrian hamster
Meet Ginger Biscuit the 3rd (also know as Cookie) our crazy Syrian Hamster. We have had Cookie since September 2019, and we believe he was roughly 6 months old when we adopted him as a rescue.
When we got him he was really tame, but we did have to work with him for a fair while before he would let us hold him. Being held isn’t his favourite past time, he would much rather try and escape, but he is happy to let the kids hold and stroke him.
His favourite foods are Whimzees dog toothbrushes, cheese, grapes and blueberries. It appears however, he may also have a love for chicken tikka masala and rice.
Hope you enjoyed meeting our littlest member of the family!
