Cannibalistic Hamster

My step-daughter’s mom is leaving town for a week and asked if we could take care of  V’s pet hamster.

I must say, I’m not really fond of the vermin. I L-O-V-E animals , absolutely adore them. But when my kids were younger, they had pet hamsters too. Djungarian hamsters to be more specific.I think they were about 5-6 of them. We didn’t know at the time, but we had a female and a male hamster, and well, I don’t need to tell you the specifics of what had happened, but we ended up with a bunch of hamsters.

Anyway, one day, I realized that we were missing one. I frantically looked around the house to see if it had escaped, checked the cage, checked under the furniture, in all of the rooms, but it was never found again. A few days later, the same thing happened. I asked the kids if they took the hamsters out to play and lost them (My friend had once lost his hamster while playing in the couch with it and that hamster too, was never found again. The hamster went into a hole of the coach and never came out, yuck) But the kids almost in tears and had said that they didn’t.

In the end hamsters kept on disappearing until only one was left, covered in blood. Only then did I know that we were the unfortunate owners of a cannibal hamster. Ta-Da-Daaa!

I wouldn’t go near that thing anymore, I was traumatised. So I gave it away telling the new owners to definitely never buy him a friend !I don’t think that I ever told them why. Then, I told the kids that he too  had disappeared, bad mama! But they know the truth now. Like the time I replaced one of my son’s fish when it died. “ Euh,Mom, why does my fish has more freckles on it’s back”…I can’t remember what I had said, but knowing me, it was probably a load of baloney. Oepsie!

Now having this hamster stay with us for the week is making me uneasy. It took me some time before I would go near it and now that I have, he looks kind of cute. Not in a “I’m going to hold you in my hands so you can eat me cute” just cute in a fluff ball kind of way. Yet, I can’t help it ,I’m still holding a grudge on the entire hamster species. While I’m writing this post, it’s looking at me with his black googly eyes…eating.

BTW, did you know that according to Uncyclopedia, these rodents are communists? Building an army? Click on the link if you don’t believe me.

Oh well, I guess it will only be for the week. If our cat Snowflake doesn’t make the hamster …“disappear” that is.  Moehahahaha!

Do pets go to heaven?

My beloved cat Snowball passed away yesterday in my arms after two days of pain after having had a C-section to deliver her two dead kittens. I didn’t know that I could weep like I did yesterday for a creature, but it broke my heart loosing her. There are no words to explain how I feel and I feel like nobody understands me…

I don’t know if animals go to heaven, but I do sure hope so and I prayed that she would.

Ecclesiastes 3:18-21““As for humans, God tests them so that they may see that they are like the animals.  Surely the fate of human beings is like that of the animals; the same fate awaits them both: As one dies, so dies the other. All have the same breath (literally “spirit“); humans have no advantage over animals. Everything is meaningless. All go to the same place; all come from dust, and to dust all return. Who knows if the human spirit rises upward and if the spirit of the animal goes down into the earth?”

Snowball…I’ll miss her pretty blue eyes looking up at me.
