Hermione usurps Peaches: weekly photo challenge indulge

February 28, 2012

 While some of us are trying to cook dinner, Arlo is lying on the floor being licked by Peaches indulging her. Peaches is feeling a little put out because she is no longer the friendliest rodent in the house. That position is now occupied by Hermione, the new baby hamster. The recently late lamented hamster, Ellie, was pretty, but not very friendly. She only accepted people on her own terms and she growled. Often. Picking her up was not really an option unless you wanted to be bitten. Peaches doesn’t like to be picked up either, but she’s very amenable to being stroked. I’m not so sure I’d want the rabbit’s teeth quite so close to my face, especially when you see what she can do to a carrot  – or the cupboard door if it’s open – but then I’m not a ten year old boy.

If Arlo’s not being licked by a rabbit, then he’s cradling a hamster. Hermione is very happy to be picked up and shows every sign of being an amenable pet. Arlo is very keen to tame her properly, aware that the first few days are vital. Even Poppy who’s not terribly fond of Peaches has had her heart melted by Hermione (this enthusiasm will fade –  Poppy just likes babies).

So, no food for the indulge challenge: just pets.
