A Few Summer Friends
Our school's science teacher adopted two male hamsters and brought them to school for her class to observe. Amazingly they were both pregnant!! So almost every elementary class ended up with pets this spring. And being the easily persuaded mom that I am, we are one of the lucky families that will be taking care of a pet hamster this summer. Rocky is the kindergarten hamster who will be living with us for the next 12 weeks. Oh, lucky, lucky us!!!
Then look who else crawled into our lives and decided to join the pet party. Mr. Claws himself. After a little research we learned that Mr. Claws is a male Eastern Box Turtle who would rather not bake in a plastic tub all summer. So we released him back into the wilderness of our back yard, with the understanding that he is welcome to come visit us again.
