Nine seems to be the magic number this week. Here are the nine hamster pups, all grown up (sort of) and ready to be adopted!
In the spirit of their mum Agatha (after Agatha Christie, of course), their names are all mystery-inspired.
From left to right, top to bottom, here we have: Ellery, Precious, JB Fletcher, Nancy Drew, Miss Marple, Murdoch, Miss Lemon, Mycroft and PD James.
They’ve pretty much made it through the standard chewing-on-fingers stage and are fairly easy to handle at this point. They’ve been very difficult to sex so far; I think they’ve been a little slow to develop because it’s a big litter. Right now only Murdoch and Mycroft look like males, which seems like a suspiciously skewed ratio. Once I’m confident on who’s what (hopefully within the next few days!), they’ll be set up in proper bonded pairs.
So who wants two adorable hammies?

;’c signal boost, this is very important! This man’s loved one is ill, he should not have to lose her because of it!
Anyone who could be a potential donor is urged to call the Medical University of South Carolina at 1-800-277-8687.
Larry Swilling has been on a months-long quest: He’s searching for a kidney for his wife.
The 78-year-old, who has been looking for a compatible kidney donor for 76-year-old Jimmie Sue since last September, has caught the attention of the Web.
But almost a year later, and despite lots of good will and plenty of offers from around the globe, he still doesn’t have a match.
It all started when Jimmie Sue Swilling, who was born with one instead of a pair of these vital organs, began to experience kidney failure.
Larry Swilling, who has been married to his wife for 57 years, told CBS News last year that his wife is “my heart,” and that he could not accept the two- to three-year-long waiting list from deceased donors.
Neither Larry nor other family members are a suitable match, which depends on blood and tissue compatibility, among other things.
There is no waiting list for someone who offers to donate a kidney to a specific person as long as the kidney is compatible.
Larry Swilling began a quest to find a donor, wearing a sandwich board with the simple plea “Need kidney 4 wife.” He walked hundreds of miles on his solo search for help.
After CBS News aired the story last December, hundreds of calls came in to the Medical University of South Carolina in Charleston.
"I’ve had calls from miles around. I’ve had calls from Egypt, Sweden, all over," Swilling told the New York Daily News. But a year later, none has resulted in a kidney.
Unfortunately, just wanting to donate a kidney is not enough. “We have some donors who have a history of high blood pressure or diabetes and that rules them out,” Sara Parker, exchange coordinator for living donors and a nurse in MUSC’s transplant center, told Fox News.
Still, Larry Swilling is not giving up. For now, his wife undergoes dialysis while she waits. And hopes. For Larry Swilling, there is no other option. “She’s my everything. … She’s my life,” he said.
please guys, I’m begging you, spread this around, nobody deserves to lose their loved one…. ;’c maybe we can help them!

Our Pet of the Week: Lucy was a stray that was living in a family’s garage. They were caring for her and loved her very much, but were unable to keep her so they contacted us to help find Lucy a forever home. Lucy is a very sweet cat. She is gentle and loving and is good with children. We think she would do best in a home as a one and only kitty, as she does not seem to do well with other cats. We are not sure how she would be around dogs. Lucy is a three year old Tortie. You can meet her at PetSmart in Traverse City. o
Polly is such a sweetheart! She is a very pretty girl who is so gentle and so loving. She was found as a stray and came to AC PAW from animal control. Polly is four years old and she is a golden brown tiger cat with short hair. She would be a wonderful addition to any family. Stop by and meet Polly at PetSmart!
