The girls each have a hamster, and each hamster resides in a separate cage. These cages are separated by cardboard so that, unless there is a crack I am unaware of (ala Pyramus and Thisbie), the two are never close enough to become acquainted with the neighbouring hamster.
Yesterday Rainbow came running into the room to announce they had taken the two hamsters out onto the lawn and they “loooooooove each other.”
No good can come of this. I’m just saying.
