Today (October 30) was suppose to be my little Kazu's birthday... unfortunately he passed away 10 days ago (as some of you may know). Today, we've also decided to add a new member to our family. I've decided to name her Keiko (aka Koko). I'll try to post a photo of her soon (right now she's extremely full of energy, being a young hamster and all) and just wants to keep running around in her exercise ball. So once she sits still enough for a photograph, a photo of her will be posted on my blog :)
Edit: Photo now posted. Brief moment of when she decided to take a 2 minute nap inside her exercise ball before discovering that I was taking her photo...
I miss my little Kazu, and wish we could celebrate his birthday today. But I'm hoping that Keiko will enjoy living in her new home with her new family :) I hope we'll have plenty of fun memories with her too. I also hope that Kazu (being her older brother and all, will watch over her ^^)
She strikingly looks a lot like Kazu (although she has a more orangey fur colour). I didn't notice this until I got home. But she's got a completely different personality :) She's also a lot younger than how Kazu was when I first got him. Keiko is also a lot more jumpy, and I can't quite hold her in my hands yet, as she'll just want to jump out and go explore some other place...lol
When my sister gets home, I'll introduce her to Keiko. I Keiko will bring a smile to her face, and replace sad memories with happy ones :)
