the truth as I know it
we currently have a hamster--charcoal. she's a delight and i love how she adores strawberries.
Ah, the great escapes are the best. So many adventure tales, scrabbling under the floorboards, sneaking food from the larder. (The hamster, not me. I am staking her out, sleepless, barely blinking, trying to trap her with flour and peanut butter. The hamster seems, somewhat alarmingly, to be rather more clever than that. But I win in the end.)
He enjoyed chewing through my ice skates' laces, which I usually only noticed at the rink, and had to go back home.I don't remember enjoying him that much, to be honest, hamsters just kind of are there.
I welcome any comment, so happy to hear from you.
