Hamster Emails 

Thursday, January 19, 2006

Recently friends have sent me a spate of hamster emails.

Today Pugshot from Chicago sent me a lovely story about a hamster and a snake who are best friends.
Gohan and Aochan make strange bedfellows: one's a 3.5-inch dwarf hamster; the other is a four-foot rat snake. Zookeepers at Tokyo's Mutsugoro Okoku zoo presented the hamster — whose name means "meal" in Japanese — to Aochan as a tasty morsel in October, after the snake refused to eat frozen mice.
Aochan refused to eat the hamster, hurriedly developing a taste for frozen mice and even allowing his new girlfriend to take naps on his back.

Update: The Mugwhump pointed out a much clearer photo of the hamster-snake duo.

of Alabama sends a hamster colouring page by a young NY illustrator. Print him out, colour him and add some hamster dialogue.

Imogene Pix of Portland, the original Mental Office Girl, found me some hamster couture links via Craftster. I think Crenguţă deserves an evil-doing cape.

Small Animal Rescue Society of BC
meanwhile wants me to foster one or two vicious teddy bear hamsters. The Vancouver SPCA is unloading all their hamsters onto this society, consisting of members who care for the animals in their homes until an adoptive family can be found. While Sylvia reassured me that I can tame the hamsters (I am a hamster whisperer, they believe), most of the hamsters are young skittish ones who simply are afraid of the looming human giants. Hamsters make good hipster pets; they are perfect for apartments, clean, need attention only once a day (water, food, walkies) and are fiercely independent. Definitely not a children's pet, unless you have gentle, responsible children that understand a hamster is more of a look but don't touch kind of pet. Like piranhas. That's what you've got to tell your young'uns. Have a look at the hamsters and consider adopting one of the cuties.

Matt sends a hamster masturbatory story. We're convinced Crenguţă, um, handles her own self-pleasure too.

Thank you all, for keeping me in mind for all your hamster news!

My apologies if I have forgotten anyone.

Update: Lee reminded me that Cute Overload! has been in hamster heaven: K. Akagami's hamster tongue shot and delicate corn munching shot and a Baruchito update.
