Welcome Orion

We have a name for the new hamster: Orion.

You see, he has these three spots on his back: two small ones close together, and a larger one a little ways away, all along the same line. So we were thinking of calling him "Umlaut" (for the two spots) or "Ellipsis" (for all three). Then on the way home from work yesterday, I came up with "Orion" from the constellation, and that did it.

So our new guy is officially Orion, a stellar hamster who is destined to be a mighty hunter.

If he holds still long enough, I will try to post a picture of his three spots.
