My Sunday Photo – 15 January 2017

roborovski hamster

I know he’s been featured before but this little fella brings me so much pleasure. Each day he will sit on my hand and let me stroke him. Actually, the stroking is quite new, he used to sit on my hand but if I tried to stroke him he’d run off like lightening. Lately, however he will let me stroke him, even though he’s so tiny and I can only stroke him with one finger, or my thumb.

He’s over a year old now and he’s grown, I’ve not measured him but I’d say he was the size of my thumb, so about 6cm. His brother, who lives in another cage because he was pretty nasty and nearly killed Marty, is much bigger, I’d say at least 7cm. He’s the big bully brother. I love Doc too and he also sits on my hand but I never get a photo of him because he’s so fast. He grabs his food and is off hiding to stuff his cheeks. Marty is definitely the more sociable one.

However I’m feeling just a few minutes with my little pets make me feel much better.

    He really is a cutie! I've got guinea pigs and I know what you mean about just spending a little time with them and stroking them. I never thought I would be interested in pets, but I love my guinea pigs and just stroking them is a really relaxing thing to do – and watching them run around always makes me smile!

A little Note About Positive Reviews on Raisie Bay

A little Note About Positive Reviews on Raisie Bay

Some people only write reviews when things go wrong with products, which is good because it lets people know that there could be potential problems. I’ve also seen negative feedback with say things like, I had to return this item because the colour did not suit me…is this useful?

I write reviews on most items I buy because I like to give genuine feedback. If I have a genuine problem with a product I will write my review in the appropriate place.

I write reviews on my blog too, but they are mostly positive. Why? Because I only write reviews for the things I’ve loved. If I don’t love them I let the person who sent me them know with details why and then let them decided if they would rather me write a negative review or not write one at all. It’s always the latter.

This is my blog, my place and I’ll let you know about the things I love. If you want to find out what other people have hated about the product then you will need to look elsewhere.

My reviews may all be positive, but they are still genuine.
