What was I thinking???? oh they are cute and fun and furry…. They are mainacs… I set out tuesday night like any good mom going to suprise her kiddos in the morning. I get to the store pick out the perfect cage. I got and get all the chew toys and treats and food. I go and sit in the isle of the rats looking for the hamsters oh shit there is a snake in that cage walking by…lord help me to not pass out look at the size of that rat. That has had to come from NYC.. I swear I have seen them on the street that big… ok maybe some exaggeration but they were big and they were scarry. Finally made it to the hamsters. I find a really cute brown and white one. They told me it was a male and he was stressed from just arriving. Give it a few hours and he should be ok.
I come home get hubs to set up the cage. I open his box and try stroking him. Shit he bit me. Little bastard is having trouble already. Ok cage set. We sit and watch and oh and ah over him. Time for bed hamster is tucked in….
I hear the foot steps in the morning. Wait for some squeals of delight. I hear mom tricked us. What. I hear the foot steps running up the stairs like a heard of elephants. Damn they jumped the bed and that hurt. Um mom I really like the cage but was there sumfin in there ? Thing 1 ask. Me yes there was… is it gone? Obviously annoyed he said yes. I look a hubs who is dying of that cold we all have had and get out of bed. I come down and said he must just be in his fluff. Horror strikes my face as I now realized it is empty…Me I do what any good wife and mother does I scream at the top of my lungs that there is a rat loose in my house and my husband better come find it.Ok down comes Paul all pissy becasue he cant sleep in. Deal with it. We search. We put the kids on the bus. Tell them we will find him.
We eventually find him in the laundry room by the heater. Must have been cold. I inspect the cage and see he has escaped from a whole that wasnt blocked. Paul puts a spongebob sticker to cover it. Note to self Get to pet store asap.
He bit Paul and Later in the day both kids. Pack him up off to the store we go. So now were are home from the pet store with the spotted cow… very cute little guy. Oh and the he was not he, he was a pregnat she the reason she was so bitchy and ready to bite everything and one. Now the spotted cow who looks like the super cow commercial is very pleasant and loves to be pet.. we are happy… here are the pics brown and white bitchy one.
