I was at a classic car show at the NEC at the weekend, and there was a stall there selling these: -

They were brill. Meant to buy one and set it loose throughout the halls, but sadly forgot all about it 'til now. They were cheaper there too!

Does your hamster eat like a horse?
The horses just don't gossip anymore

im tempted to buy one of those hamster balls as a consolation present for my ex seeing as i got custody of max, ha!

my chinchilla, artie, is making the move up to live with me in less than a week! he's lived with my parents for the past 4 years while i was away at uni and i've missed his furry little face off. this is going to be a best thing ever.

Less cute, but still kind of cool, I saw The Biggest Rat In The World on my way to work this morning. It was eating pizza...

The Japanese Dormouse (Glirulus japonicus) is a species of rodent in the Gliridae family. It is monotypic within the genus Glirulus. It is endemic to Japan. Its natural habitat is temperate forests. In Japanese it is called Yamane. Among dormice, it has the special ability of running at great speed upside down, suspended from branches. Its main food is nectar or pollen, although nursing females will eat small insects. (Head and body length is 65-80 mm and tail length is 40-55 mm. Weight is 14-40 grams)

Seriously, I saw a documentary about these guys (animal planet FTW!!!)... I fell in love, over and over again.
They're fast as lightning, tiny, cute, a bunch of little wonders really.
Oh, and they are sleepyheads. They hibernate up to seven months.
I've been thinking about starting a fanclub actually.

You see why there is love from my side right?

Cap ou pas cap?
