Joshua the magician performs a dissappearence act!

Hello fellow hamsters.

In case you have forgotten, it’s a-me, Joshua! The proud son of the Monty and Maza.

Yeah, I think a re-introduction was in order because I haven’t blogged for a while. I had a very adventurous month, that’s why.

Nick leaves me free to roam in his house almost every night. He is annoyed with my sleep pattern. It has changed a bit and I wake up a lot later than I used to. I used to wake up at 20:00. Lately, I do not leave my warm nest before 22:00. Ah, yes, I forgot. It’s getting a lot colder.

I spent a lot of time making a big warm nest every morning and then I go to sleep. When I wake up, I get out of my cage and start running all over the house. But usually I just go straight into my mother’s old cage and use her wheel. What can I say, I am a wheel-addict!

Some weeks ago, I made a disappearance act. I disappeared for one whole day. I never returned in my cage. Nick went nuts. He started looking for me all over the place, under the bed, behind the sofa. I had so much fun watching them from my hiding corner. He found me eventually. When he found me I was asleep and they woke me up. He found me by chance. Nick opened the kitchen’s lower cupboard, and there I was. Sleeping! He was a bit angry, but when he saw my huge food stockpile that I had gathered, he laughed. It was THAT big, that it was funny. Nick wandered how many days I must have been planning my ‘disappearance act’ and how many days I must have spent transferring all that food. I will never tell.

As an extra bonus for reading all this, here are some of my cute pictures.

Goodbye Maza

Hello, this is Joshua blogging.

I am afraid I got some sad news. Nick told me that mommy is not ill anymore and that she has gone to the Rainbow Bridge.

I got confused. This is where my father lives. So mommy will be together with Monty, my daddy! She will be happy because she was missing him so much. And there is a huuuuge hamster wheel there. So I asked them, why is it sad news? Nick hesitated a bit, and then said it's sad news because I will not see them for some time.

Which got me thinking... and I asked when will I see them when? This was hard for them to answer, so after a bit of thinking, they said that, according to statistics, I would meet them in 18 months. Or 2 years at best. Hmmm, strange.

Nick told me to write a few things about Maza, as a goodbye speech, so here it is.
Maza, my mother was a white haired syrian hamster that liked to eat a lot. She wasn't very active, and rarely used her hamster wheel, but loved playing in her hamsterball. She was quiet and liked making a huge nest from tissue paper. She also liked making a huge stockpile of food, seeds, corn, peanuts. But what she loved more (besides Monty) was her peanuts. She would crunch the peanut's shell for hours and that made her happy. Then she would store the peanuts and never eat them. She only bite them just for the taste. Nick rarely let her out of her cage unsupervised like they did with me (Joshua) and my father (Monty) because she would chew all the cables! She had twelve beautiful baby hamster with Monty, and one of those babies grew up to be ME! Maza was loved by everyone who met her.

Anyway, I am not that sad about mommy. I am going to miss not seeing her but she will be happy there. I am just going to miss her. On the other hand, I just inherited a furnished 2-floor house with a hamster-wheel too. 

Maza, the fat princess

Bye mommy! Me, Nick and all your human friends will miss you lots!

Your baby hamster, Joshua.

Anyway, got to go!

Winter is coming

Nick is reading his favorite book series, A Song of Ice and Fire. He also watches the TV-show (Game of Thrones) and I can't help but watch it too sometimes. It is very violent and I will never allow little hamster Joshua to watch it. In the show and in the books, there is a noble family that lives in the North where the winter is very harsh. They have to prepare for the harsh Winter all the time!

I have to prepare for the Winter too! I need to make a large stockpile of food, and also find warm bedding! Because as Ned Start says in every episode 'WINTER IS COMING'!

Maza Starkhamster

...but peanuts are coming too!
Winter may be coming...

Joshua was feeling adventurous that day

Joshua was feeling adventurous that day by plutonick2

Joshua spent most of the afternoon climbing any surface that could climb and exploring the area under the sofa.

Later, when Nick cleaned his cage, they found a Mentos stashed in his hide-out. Somehow, that Mentos was under the sofa, hidden, who knows for how long. Joshua unearthed it and stored it.

As for me, I spent most of the afternoon sleeping with the occasional break of running around in my favorite blue hamsterball.

Joshua has been grounded!

Sometimes, at night, I make a lot of noise. I bite the rails of my cage and I try to open the hatchdoor so I can get out. Usually, all it takes is some treats and then I become quiet again.

Maza tries to jailbreak!

Young Joshua was a quiet hamster, but lately he is always making mischief. He is getting very noisy at nights!

He starts eating his peanuts at 01:00. Afterwards he runs in his wheel, making sure to run in such a way that creates the most noise possible. Then he goes up and down his tube, or start re-arranging his cage decoration or his food stockpile. But most often, he climbs on the rails and either bites them, or tries to break them with the force of his weight (which is futile, but funny).

But that is not all. I wish it was.

This morning Nick opened the top of Joshua's cage and started leaving food inside. Joshua was in the other corner of the floor and was observing him (his hand actually). Then he started approaching his hand is a shy way. Nick was very happy because Joshua is usually scared of him. So he continued leaving food in his cage. Then Joshua got even closer to his hand, and using his cowardly tactic, BIT him!

Needless to say, Nick is mad. I heard him say that he will not let him out of his cage ever again, because he is a spoiled hamster. Poor Joshua. I am sure he mistook his hand for a treat and just tried to have a bite! It is common, because us, hamster, have poor eyesight and generally are more dependent on smell. And Nick's hand definitely smelled like food!

Maza, the mother of a spoiled hamster.

Totonika, Monty and Joshua

Today I learned that Totonika Nova passed away.

Totonika is a friend of mine that I never actually met. But I visited her blog often and we talked through her guest book. She always brought a smile to my face, especially when my friend Monty passed away a month ago. The news made me sad, but I am confronted by the thought that Totonika and Monty, are going to be together in Rainbow Bridge. Perhaps Monty will show her the Rainbow Bridge Net Cafe and she will be able to mail her 'mum'.

Goodbye Totonika Nova, you will be remembered.

You can leave a message in Totonika's farewell page.

In other, more happy news, my son Joshua was very naughty tonight. He was biting his cage and making noises because he wanted to be let out. Nick couldn't sleep and moved his cage in another room. Of course that didn't help much. Joshua continued to make noise all through the night. I suspect the more he is left free to roam the house, the more he gets used to it. Also, he stopped biting, at least for now. But he is still getting scared easily and dislikes being petted.


This is a picture of Joshua. He is free to run around the house and he is extremely happy. I also think this is the first picture of Joshua that I uploaded to the blog. He is camera shy.

At last Joshua's brother found a home

Hello, this is Maza and I got more good news. After returning for Loutraki, we found a home for Joshua's little brother.

If you have been reading this blog you migh remember that I had 12 little hamsters. Nick tried to find a home for them. And they did for 10 of them, but 2 of them were unlucky and Nick decided to give them to a friendly local pet shop.

When Monty went to the Rainbow Bridge, Nick checked on the pet store to see if those two little hamsters had found a home. They were sad to find out that after 4 months, they were still there. He got Joshua back (one of the two hamsters), but the other one was left there alone. 

Well, finally Joshua's brother found a home! He spent one day with me and his brother and then he was given to Penelope where he will be loved. I am so relieved!

I have a couple of pictures of Joshua's little brother to share with you. Do not confuse him with Joshua, although he looks exactly like him. Joshua's brother was a lot more social than Joshua during that one day we spent with him.

I've been a bad bad bad hamster...

Hello, Maza here.

We just arrived to Loutraki. And I've been a bad bad bad hamster during the road trip :((((

Let me start from the beginning. Nick decided to go to his summer house in Loutraki and stay there for 10 days. Since Monty, my boyfriend, went to the Rainbow Bridge recently, Nick wanted to take us (me and Monty's son, Joshua) with them to cheer us up. Also 10 days are a lot of time to leave us alone.

Joshua hasn't been with us for more than a week and is not as comfortable as me,  around Nick. So, the plan was to put our two cages in the backseat of the car and have me and Joshua in our hamster-balls. And that's what we did. So far so good.

Nick was afraid that Joshua would get scared of being in his hamster ball all this time, so he started feeding him nuts and peanuts and lettuce so he would be occupied with something and not be grumpy. He felt bad about me, and started feeding me too.

It turned out that Joshua was not nervous at all, after finishing his meal he fell asleep in his hamster-ball. But it was me that started to get nervous. I had stored my food in my chick-pouches and I started to get impatient. I wanted to empty those pouches in my cage, but I was in my hamster-ball. Nick understood that I wanted to be in my cage, parked his car and he opened the hamster-ball and picked me up.

I am so sorry... I don't know why. Perhaps I got scared. It was my first road-trip!!! Please understand me! I got so scared that I bit NICK!!! Sorry!!!

He got startled and dropped me on the floor, and I started running around. It took him a while but in the end he found me picked me up again, put me in my cage and everything was fine afterwards.

That's all. The moral of the story is that even a hamster that is good mannered and behaves, like me, can get scared in a car and bite someone without really thinking about it!

Monty's last wish

Hi, it's Maza again. And guess who is sitting next to me... JOSHUA!!! Monty's son.

I am so happy. I got little Joshua by my side, teaching him how this blog works so he can update it by himself one day. Joshua looks so much like his father, it's almost like Monty is next to me too. Monty, if you read this on RainbowBridge Netcafe, let me tell you your son has inherited your house, but also all your bad habits! He is an explorer, will not stand still for a second, and also does not eat all his food. Just like you.

Joshua has long hair, but not as long as Monty's. His fur is is the same color as Monty's but even more softer to the touch. More like mine. And Joshua is a lot fatter than Monty. Like me!

Nick ισ leaving for Loutraki for vacations and decided to take us along. We are going to spent 10 days there. I don't really like travels and I am also worried about Joshua. I am not sure if he is going to behave himself on the journey. It's one hour long by car and he hasn't traveled before. Neither have I.

I promise I will take some pictures of Joshua once we arrive at Loutraki. But until then, I found some old pictures of Monty. These are from the time he was working on his blog. Haha, he liked looking at himself.

So Long And Thanks For All the Sunflower Seeds.

Hello hamster-readers. This is Maza. I got an email from Monty some minutes ago! I am copy-pasting it below in its entirety. I am so excited by reading Monty's news. And I can't wait for Joshua!

From: Monty (
To: Maza the fat princess (
Subject: So long and thanks for the the sunflower seeds

Dear Maza,

I am sorry for my unexpected departure but it was not something I had planned. The last couple of days I was feeling ill. You may have noticed that I wasn't drinking enough water, I was walking rather sluggishly, and I wasn't grooming myself as much as I used to. Nick definitely noticed it. He tried to make me feel better, but my condition was more serious than he thought.

The last day I spent in my cage, next to you, was the worst. I was constipated and couldn't... *ahem*.. poop! Nick tried to make me drink water (with vitamins) from a syringe because I was dehydrated. He said that it would help my constipation problem as well. I was feeling so ill that I didn't want to drink water but he insisted. Later he tried to clean my 'bottom' and massage my belly with a warm towel.

When I was clean and had drunk my water, I felt very tired. Nick put me back in my cage. I curled in a corner and fell asleep. And that's when the weird things started happening.

I read in your previous post you wrote on MY blog (I am kidding, you are free to post anytime you wish), that the next morning I was lying there and I was not moving, and that Nick thought I had passed away! But that's not really what happened, is it? You did suspect something was amiss. Well, you were right.

The next morning, contrary to popular belief, I woke up, alright. But not in my cage! I woke up in a big grassy field. It was so beautiful and sunny. I normally don't like the sun, but this time it was fine. A large blue river was running through the field and a huge rainbow bridge was crossing it. Between me and the bridge were many kinds of animals, too many to count. And they were also separated in groups of varying sizes. I felt a strange desire to join one such group. And what a weird group it was.

For starters there were at least 2 dogs, 5 cats, 2 turtles, a duck, some canaries and one little parrot. Yes, you read that right, a parrot. When those animals saw me approaching, they greeted me. They were friendly, even the cats. I hate cats, you know that. The introduced themselves to me. Oh my god, you should listen to their names. Their names were so stupid and funny that I was barely able to keep a straight faced. The duck was called Pipinos (lol). The dogs were called Irma and Azor (I might be wrong on that last one). The cats were confusing. One of the was called Pinky (she was black though). The others were all called Loulis. There was Loulis the first, Loulis 2, Loulis 3 and 4. They were like some sort of a bad movie series. Loulis 1 colours' were white and brown. Loulis 2 and 3 where gray with streaks of white and black. Loulis 4 was totally black. I can't remember the parrot's name (he was creepy), nor the turtles's.

I was a bit confused and Pippinos the duck explained everything to me.

This, he said, was a place called Rainbow Bridge. And all those animals I saw were pets, waiting for their 'special friend' from back 'home'. Until their special friend arrives, the pets enjoy the scenery, run around, eat their favorite meals, socialize and play. But some times, a pet would stop playing and stand still, as if something just clicked and made sense. Then he would turn around and would see his special friend in the distance. That pet would run towards his special friend and they would be reunited again at last. And they would cross the Rainbow Bridge together. There is some confusion as to which special friend a pet will follow when it had more than one special friend, but lets not delve into plot-holes.

It's very common for pets in Rainbow Bridge to socialize with other pets that had a common special friend. And all the pets in this group knew Nick. I was more special because I brought more recent news from Nick! By the way, OMG NICK, you weren't very talented in giving names to cats, were you? You named four cats Loulis?

Quite recently the management of Rainbow Bridge built an Internet Cafe. This is where I am writing this email from. Unfortunately this place is very busy. New pets arrive here all the time and everyone wants to sent an email back 'home'. As a newcomer, I have priority, but I doubt I will be able to sent another email anytime soon. I definitely will not be able to update the blog, so I leave that responsibility to you.

Anyway, let's move on to more serious stuff. I never had time to make a proper testament. Fact is I was not expecting to be moving on so quickly. So, all of my edible possessions, including but not limited to my hoard of peanuts, sunflower seeds and the frozen broccoli which I didn't manage to devour, I leave to you, Maza the fat princess. Please don't eat those all in one sitting!

My manor and all the furniture, the tubes, the bedding, both my hamster-balls, my two water-bottles and my favorite hamster-wheel, the curtains and everything shall be inherited by ... my son JOSHUA!!!!

(surprised? don't be!)

So, yeah, I found out about him. Maza, do you remember when you gave birth to 12 little hammies? Nick certainly does. They tried to find homes for all our babies and they almost did. Except for Joshua. They couldn't find a home for him, so as a last resort they gave him to a pet shop owner. Joshua was so cute that they believed someone would adopt him soon. Unfortunately, I have been told by an undisclosed person (well, pet in fact), that poor Joshua is still in that pet shop, homeless and motherless. My last wish is for him to move back home so he can be with his mother and Nick. I have been told he is well mannered and handsome. In fact he looks just like me and you, Maza. He has my long-haired fur and color, and your facial features and .. erm... shape!

Ok, now I am rumbling, and... wait, what is that? A GIANT HAMSTER-WHEEL??? Oh the joy! I have to go and run on that wheel. I can't resist.

I got to go Maza. I miss you all. Don't feel sad for me, it's wonderful here.

So long and thanks for all the sunflower seeds,

Monty the hamster

Monty! Where did you go?

Hi, this is Maza and I am afraid I have some rather bad news to share.

I woke up this morning and Monty's cage was empty!

During my sleep I heard Nick talking to someone about what happened to Monty. He was so sad. Monty was sick the last couple of days. Last night they tried to give him water through a syringe. The vet would return from his vacations today and Nick was going to visit him with Monty, but I guess they were late.

Nick said that Monty passed away this night, but I know better. Monty went to the Rainbow Bridge, waiting for us so we can all cross it together. But until then I feel so lonely....

Goodbye Monty,
Me, Nick and everyone that met you will never forget you. Visit us in a dream soon.

Your fat princess,

Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.
When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge. There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together. There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.

All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor. Those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by. The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind. 

They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent. His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster. 

You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart. 

Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together....

Monty is sick.

Hi, I am Maza. I am Monty's girlfriend!

Monty can't update his blog right now because he has been sick the past couple of days.

Right after our little visitor left (I mean Iggy) Monty started not feeling very well. I don't know what's wrong with him but I am worried! Nick is at his office right now, but I heard him talking to a vet and arranging an appointment for Monty.

Monty looks very miserable. He is sluggish, which makes me very sad to look at him. He used to be so active before. His fur is not groomed as much as he used to. I remember him having a rich and bright fur, but now it's untidy. He sleeps all night. At least he still has his appetite but I think he isn't drinking as much water.

We are not even sure if he is actually sick. Could it be a heat stroke? It's true that it's hot right now, here in Greece, but Nick was leaving the A/C on all the time. Perhaps he caught a cold? Certainly it can't be from old age. Monty is not even 10 months old yet.

We were afraid Monty might have been dehydrated. We gave him frozen broccoli and he ate some of it. He seemed to like it. Then Nick gave me frozen broccoli to me too. I loved it, it was like vegetable ice-cream! But let's not talk about me. Nick put Monty in his old cage, with fresh aspen shavings for bedding, because he wanted to be sure it was not the new Carefresh bedding in his cage that was making him sick. He even checked for wet tail symptoms, but her findings were not conclusive.

Anyway, Nick got worried, because Vets that specialize in Hamsters are quite rare in Greece, but I see that Nick found one and his office is not very far. Ah, right now he is calling him. I am eavesdropping right now... she (the vet) is on vacation but she sounds very helpful. She says that we needs to give him yogurt because it has antibiotics. I like yogurt. We also need to put some vitamin drops in his water bottle. And turn off the A/C. The vet was very helpful, she seemed like a nice person. If Monty is not better by Thursday, then they are going to pay the vet a visit.

I pray to the saint of Hamsters for Monty to get well soon!

 Maza the hamster.

Hello, this is Monty!

It's very hot here in Athens! It's unbearable. 

Due to the heat, me and Maza sleep in the open. That is, inside our cage, but not inside our little houses. Nick saw that, and now he leaves the air-conditioning on 24/7! The first time he did that though, it was TOO COLD, and we went inside our houses and insulated ourselves with tissue paper like we did in the winter!

But what is more important is that we got one of our boys, Iggy, with us!!! Nick's friends went for vacations, so they sent Indy here for us to take care for a month. He is very happy to see us, and so are we. Me and Maza gave Nick some hamster-euros and Nick ordered a Nintendo DS (hacked). We gave it to Indy as a present. I tried to find a rom version of Pokemon Fire-Red (Iggy's favorite game). I had some trouble configuring DS acekard to ran a GBA rom, but in the end I made it! This is a picture of installing the Pokemon GBA rom on a Nintendo DS (using EZ Flash 3-in-1).

Me, hacking the NDS so Indy can play what all the cool hamsters are playing

Indy liked his NDS.  Too much in fact. Then, I noticed that he was sleeping a lot.. hmmm, teenagers these days...

This is Iggy, our son. He sleeps a lot.

Like the concerned father I am, when he was out playing in his hamsterball, I had a chance to spy in his room. I was sneaky. I didn't want Indy discovering me. Nor Maza, she would say I was a silly-dad, an overprotective one. I didn't want Nick afinding out either, because he would take photos of me and laugh with their friends. Well, I failed the last one. Nick took pictures of me after all. I will post them here first! This way I will have the last laugh. Or the first? D-oh! You can see Maza on the right, observing me and making fun of me. Grrr. 

Anyway, here is my gallery (you can even call it a graphical guide) on how to invade other hamster's cages. Observe my agility and my climbing skills.

What is he hiding in here??? I knew it! Junk Food!

Vertical climbing

Horizontal climbing

Anyway, I found disturbing evidence in Indy's cage. I found food. A lot of food. JUNK FOOD! Sleeping and eating this much junk food cannot be healthy. I sneaked into his cage and waiting until Nick left. I didn't like him taking pictures. This was top-secret stuff. I waited and waited, and when the coast was cleared I confiscated all the junk food. My plan was to move all this food into my cage and destroy it (by digesting it). I stuffed as much junk food as I could in my cheeks. I started making my stealthy escape and then BAM, Nick got into the room with his damned camera. BUSTED.Then I tried to leave his room and deposit all this unhealthy food in my cage. But I didn't want anyone to find out. Unfortunately Nick did! He even took some photos of me because he thought I was funny. Stupid Nick, I will have my revenge soon.

Caught in the act of confiscating high-calorie food!

I am embarrassed. My cheeks are turning red.

Afterwards was time for exercise. I instructed Iggy to enter his hamsterball and start running.

 But all this running around made ME hungry, so I decided I needed a break from watching Iggy. Next stop, Quakers!

I am in trouble!

I managed to escape from my cage three times in a row. But now Nick is watching me carefully. They even put me in a maximum security cage with cctv (webcam actually) so they can observe every movement I make.

Here is how it went down.

3 days ago.

I managed to lift the top of my cage, got out and started walking up and down the corridor. Nick saw me, but he wasn't alarmed. He does let me out on his own as well, but before he goes to sleep, he picks me up and puts me back in my cage. NOT THIS TIME HAHAHAHA.

This time I brought some food on me and hid myself. He thought I was hidden under some furniture in his bedroom, so he sealed off the rest of the house until the next evening. He knows that I would wake up eventually and would start patrolling the house.

But I was smart. I was hidden in the living room, inside the sub-woofer. Too bad I was sealed off the PC room. That's where my cage was. That was also were my water supply was located. I got thirsty. I will not make the same mistake again.

The next morning they found me. Or so they think. In fact I let myself be found, because I was thirsty.
I.. am thirsty... Need. Water...

2 days ago.

I managed to lift the top of my cage again and started walking up and down the corridor. I was very lucky because Maza was there too. I started climbing on her. Nick saw me again and was furious at me. He started yelling about 12 more hamsters in one month's time. I have no clue what he was talking about. The put me back in my cage.

1 day ago

This time, they left me roaming around the house. I hid. They thought I was hidden inside the sub-woofer, but I wasn't there. Nick was afraid I might get hungry. He left some cheese on the bedroom floor, thinking I would come out, pick it up, and he would spot me. But I waited until he fell asleep.

Next morning, when he woke up, the cheese was missing. He didn't like that I tricked him and was angry. He started moving furniture around. I let myself be found again. I also adopted a sad face. I am a good actor. Nick put me in my cage again.

Then he realized that I was escaping from my cage because the PC room was very hot, so he moved the cage into his bedroom that is air-conditioned.

I won!
I just found my new hiding spot.

She can't stop!

Maza, for the love of hamstergod, STOP EATING!!!

Did you reach Australia through that hole? Any buried treasure? Can you breathe? Hello..? Oh my god I think she is stuck. BRING THE JAWS OF LIFE!


Thursday, 30 June 2011

Humans love me too much some times.

Yeah, I know you love me guys, but come on! You are suffocating me. Jeez! Holding me all the time is annoying. Especially when I got food in my mouth. So, stop doing it! My evil eye is on you!!!

Even more reminiscences

Hello Hamsters!

Nick is playing games on his PS3 so I managed to sneak into his room. I am using his computer now, heheh.

Ok, last time I told you about how I got to know Maza better. And how we played together. Well, after a while she became snobbish again. I don't know if it had something to do with my 'acrobat' tricks, but I think Nick blamed me for Maza's snobish attitude.

She wouldn't talk to me, she wanted to be left alone and sleep all the time. I wanted to play together with her, but she wouldn't leave her cage. And she was always eating. She even started to get fat!!! Nick and Ira were giving her tissue paper so she could make a big nest. Why did they encourage her snobbish behavior?

Three weeks later, Maza gave birth to twelve small hamsters. Can you believe it? Twelve!!!

Nick awas happy at first, and they even said that I was the father. Nonsense! How could I be the father??? I didn't do anything naughty! But then Nick became worried. There were too many baby hamsters. Including me and Maza, we were 14 hamsters and only 2 cages! We had to get more cages, and later we would have to find people to adopt the babies. 

Here are some pictures of the babies. Hm, they do look a little like me...

We let Maza take care of the small hamsters until they were old enough. Maza was stressed. She thought there was very little food in her cage and every time Ira gave her food, she always took it. She had filled her house with sunflower beads, peanuts and corn, but she would always pick up more food. I felt a little bad, because Maza took the whole burden of raising the babies, and I couldn't help her at all. Poor Maza, her babies exhausted her. They were always milking her, and she couldn't rest, not even for a minute. There was a time where Maza collapsed in the middle of her cage. Nick was scared. He thought that she died. But she was just exhausted and sleeping.

This is a video of Maza trying to escape her cage because all those baby hamsters drove her nuts!!!

When the baby hamsters grew up and they could eat on their own, Nick had no choice but to buy two more cages. He put the male hamsters in one cage, and the females in another. It was funny because they made a mistake. One boy hamster pretended to be a girl, because he wanted to be with the girls. Exactly what a rogue like me would do. Clever boy. I guess I am the father after all!

The little hamsters grew up very fast. Some were white like Maza, some where golden like me. And some had white and golden patches. They were very funny. Some hamsters are going to be long-haired and some are going to be short-haired, but it will take a while for their fur to grow. Nick found homes for all of them, and gave them away. I am afraid I am not going to see them again. This made me sad but Nick promised me that the owners will sent pictures of my kids! And he occasionally tells me stories of their adventures.

Also Maza is getting fat again... but I didn't do anything. I promise!!!

Got to go. Maza is calling me because she feels lonely.

Monty, the fatherly figure.
