Cali's First Birthday

So today was Cali's (yep, the hamster-the Californian Golden Girl) first birthday. Well, actually it was sometime about 3 weeks ago, but who's counting really? Apparently the girls. They were mortified to learn that we hadn't thrown a party on the special day. So we decided a late party would do. As silly as this little ritual seems, I now think everyone should throw parties for their pets, because its just too darn funny.


She showed us what Cali's cheeks would look like by the end of the party.

Make a wish little hamster...

Her little cake was made of a piece of bread with a layer of cream cheese and topped with a carrot. Tasty.

"I wonder if I can fit da whol' ting in my mouf."

"I'm stuffed."

The girls and I made this house for her. It fits inside her cage. The girls wet cheerios with a little dab of milk and stuck them to the outside - along with carrot and apple pieces.


Cali fell right to sleep afterwards. I think she almost had as much fun as the girls did.

  4. Well, I'm another CuteOverload incomer ^^.

    Very good idea that is the cake and the house thing. Certainly the house, with the pieces of cereals stuck with a bit of milk. That's a good way of entertaining the hamster, as in nature they find their food and in house they receive it, so a big part of their daily routine is taken away. Really good idea, and could be developed. ^^

  22. Oh, what an awesome outpouring. I'm embarrassed that it has taken me so long to respond! Thanks all! She is featured in the 2010 Cute Overload calendar, so if you liked this be sure to go pick one up! Unfortunately, Cali passed away this year after a happy hamster life but you can see our newest addition to the family on my October post.
