IKEA & New stuff for my hamsters!!!


30/7/2010 Friday
I've been here many times already...but this is the first time I went leisurely there with my friends. We were five all together (Hafiz, Noraini, Alia, Wan and I). Well, it wasn't for leisure at all. We have a 15-to-20-page-assignment to complete (Retailing subject - minor code)...haha. Instead of visiting, we were shopping some IKEA stuff. The things captured our eyes and brought about the lost of money..haha. Yeah, because we needed to pay for the stuff taken! For sure! Huhu...

Azwan and Kak Alia are searching for mini plants. Then he bought two plants and two empty porcelain pots.

After that, we went to IKEA Mall, level 3. Guess what?! There is "Pet Lovers Center"!!!! It made me crazy! There were countless cute hamsters, gerbils, rabbits and my dream guinea pigs! Hahaha...I saw chinchillas as well...RM320 for one! Sorry that I couldn't capture any photos...we were not allowed to use cameras inside! There were also adorable puppies...pity ones! Huhu....

Surely, I bought something for my hamsters at home. I took 1 kg sand bathing (strawberry scented) - RM14.90, a bottle of multi-vitamin - RM5.80 and a bell-ball - RM1.50.

I went home in a very cheerful mood. I cleaned Gucci and Micci's cage straight away! They seemed really happy with their new strawberry scented bathing sand. I put several drops of vitamin according to the instruction stated on the bottle...don't worry! You know what? The next day (31/7/2010), I saw them mating. Hahaha...it's a good moment! They will possibly get pups soon. I read articles about hamsters (Micci and Gucci are Golden hamsters or Syrian Hamsters) on the internet.

<!--[if gte mso 9]> Normal 0 false false false EN-US X-NONE AR-SA MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 "Hamsters are seasonal breeders. Breeding season is from April to October in the northern hemisphere, with two to five litters of 1 to 13 young being born after a gestation period of 16 to 23 days. Gestation lasts 16 to 18 days for Syrian hamsters.

Golden hamster females are also very aggressive toward male hamsters and must be separated immediately after breeding in order to prevent an attack. Female hamsters are also particularly sensitive to disturbances while giving birth and may even eat her own young if she thinks they are in danger, although sometimes she is just carrying the pups in her cheek pouches.


It should also be noted that if a captive hamster is left for extended periods (3–4 weeks and more) with her litter, there is a high possibility that she will cannibalize the litter. It is therefore imperative that the litter be split up by the time the young can collect their own food and water." (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hamster)


Wow! I was really surprised! I am now eager to know what will happen in 16 days time! Don't worry, I'll update that later!
