Happiness is Seeing your hamster happy again

My son always adjusts quickly to a new house. He has no problems at all. In fact, he is enjoying it thoroughly. He enjoys moving into a new room, enjoys traveling the new route to school. But our beloved white pearly dwarf hamster, Remy, didn't share his excitement.

Remy was out of sort for days. He refused to walk into our hands, even into my husband's hand, which was his favorite. He also didn't want to walk into his food bowl like he usually does when we give him fresh dried food. My husband was kind of broken hearted for a while, worried. But he was also sure that Remy is just adjusting to the new environment. It is rather more noisy in our house with the sound of traffic nearby. Maybe that's why.

Anyway, today Remy was back to normal. He took to our hands more readily, chewing his food happily, and was looking contentedly sleepy at approriate times. We bought him a new maze for his habitrail ovo extension bowl. He explored the whole place calmly, and soon found a nice little nook for naps.

Come to think of it, he's already two years old. My son was praying that he would live long enough. This is one unusual hamster, folks. Simply irresistable in his mild manners and sweetness. It's so good to see him looking content and happy again.
