Yesterday I noticed that Mario was experiencing a red nose and slightly swollen eyes. This is likely from the dust in his regular bedding. $27 at the pet-store later, I re-do his cage with a soft, dye-free, spoiled-hamster, deluxe sleeping corner of happiness.
What is Mario doing at the moment, you ask? He is moving the sharp wooden shavings into a large heap on top of the fluffy corner. SMH.
I also dropped way too much cash on a silent wheel. No more squeaking while students are trying to concentrate, at least. Worth it!
Ms. Palumbo needs a place for her random thoughts. She's putting them here!
