This was Nadia's last pets. 2 hamsters named chippy and hammy. They even had 7 baby hamsters...which of course died one after the other. The baby hamsters died becoz the male adult hamster ate it. I don't understand why he did it but maybe the new-born babies were defected or something. Also, in the end, even the parent hamsters, chippy and hammy, died. The adult hamsters made a hole in the cage and was always fond of going out and about in the middle of the night. The next morning either one of the hamsters was always missing. So, Nadia and her brothers had to go looking for these hamsters. Favourite hamsters' hang out was under the bed, behind the wardrobe or drawer chest, or even in the kitchen. It was such a hassle when the hamsters was not found. I've never bothered to help out with these muddles in my home. I've got too much of other things to do!!!
Hamsters, kittens, ducklings, fishes, rabbits, chickens, terrapin...and many-many more long list of animals in my household. Mostly, these creatures are Nadia's pets. Nadia is most persistent when she begs and pleads us to allow her to keep these animals as her pets.
ALhamdulillah, we've never had all of these pets at one single time. Usually, when one pet dies, our house is animal free for a while. But...not long after, due to Nadia's pleas and doe-eyed look, we'll start to have another animal. Thus, since our first pet, which I can't remember what it was, we've had almost 20 different sorts of pets.
I've always resolved not to listen to Nadia. Countless times, I've said no to her pleas to get a new pet. Yet, after hundreds of 'No' ....I usually end up saying one 'Yes'. How many times can a person say No??? Although I've often regretted it, sometimes, it is just easier to agree and go along with Nadia. Then, we'll start a new pet episode. SubhanAllah, it's been almost one month since the last hamster's death. I am really hoping and praying that I will not weaken and break down to Nadia's pleas yet once again.
Last Sunday, as we were out in Ipoh, Nadia has started her campaign to get herself another boy+girl hamsters. When both me & my hubby explained to her the dificulties in having these pets, she sulked throughout the entire trip. Finally, coz my hubby can't bear to see his children being sad & disappointed, we decided to get her a non-living pet....
