my journal of hamster babies

Day 1 - November 24

The babies are already growing. I tell the story of their birth to the third-grade class that I work with. They are excited and have many questions.

One day old—note the black spots where their eyes will develop.

After I come home, I check on the babies. They have grown slightly, but look about the same. Pikachu is happy to receive food treats and baby formula from a dropper. During the night, she must have spent a long time stuffing wood chips into one of the tunnels leading upstairs. She wants to keep her babies safe.
