As a child I loved my pets, it all started with a couple of pet goldfish (we won at the fair) then we had two mice and from then I had several hamsters. They are such wonderful little creatures that after careful handling can be loving pets
These small furry bundles make me smile and are such wonderfully endearing creatures, so at the weekend we decided to brush off the old hamster cage and get a new one for the kids.
Now I can't really show you any pictures of her being held yet as she is still very timid, but over time she should come out of her shell and be a great friend for my two children.
But so far my two children (3 and 5) adore her and keep waiting for her to come out and have a snuffle about the cage, in fact it is safe to say they are besotted by Peppa, as she has been named by said 3 year old.
Pets are great for children, they not only become a friend but I think having something to care for will show them how things life is for me at times.
I hope to share more of our journey with Peppa and the children, to show how wonderful a pet a hamster can be.
But for now this is me linking up to Magic Moments over on the lovely The Olivers Madhouse blog.
