New Hamster!

51 hours into New Hamster Watch, and he is still alive.
We have named the little guy, Zipper, and call him Zippy.
He is fast, so it fits.
I am just glad he is still alive.
Since November I've killed 3 hamsters, a cat, and a mom.
Sucks to be me!
( or a friend of me, so think about that for a minute, I'll understand if you want to run away now.)
*Ha Ha Ha*

Zippy is a running fool! He loves the wheel!
I suggested we re-name him Forest, my child balks at this. We keep lloking at him, making sure he is still alive.
Zippy!
His name is Zippy!
And it fits him.
I am already attached to him.
He has sweet little beady black eyes, is so soft, and he lived! He survived the drive home!
Surviving the drive home has become a big deal for me. I love pets that live through the drive!
When he dies ( approximently 6 months from now) I'll be devastated.
This is why I don't want pets! It's bad enough when people die on me, but pets too?
L ike I need another tiny grave in my back yard!

But he is cute, the Zippy, I like him very much. He makes the KatieBug happy, and that is good enough for me.
He runs the wheel 6 ft from my desk, RUN ZIPPY!
Live!

I think he looks more like a Carl or a Ben. *shrug*
Maybe you should buy Neopets. When they die you just add a new battery.

i once had a really hateful hamster that bit me right in the meat between my thumb and index finger. I shook him off and accidentally threw him against the wall. I cried because my hand hurt, and then I cried because I had killed my hamster!

Yay Zippy! I am happy you got a new hamster, Buggy.

I am not allowed to have any small pets. DF fears I would forget to water them and stuff.

Poor Brian. Ouch!

I did that once too Brian, not quite as violently, but dropped one when it bit me very hard and wouldn't let go. She was already very sick and dropping her definately put that last nail in the coffin.
