Hamlet has actually got another name - Jackson. From Bonnie. Last evening we heard her calling out to him, 'come here Jackson', putting out her hand hoping that he'd climb on it. Her daddy and I looked at each other and burst into laughter. We got to admit that Jackson sounds good.
Having a new pet feels a bit like having a new kid. You feel like buying all sorts of toys for him. The other day while we were contemplating on which cage to get, a couple came up to the shop assistant to ask about a hamster exercise ball.
A plastic transparent ball where you put in your hamster so he can run around in the house without you having to worry of losing him or get himself into trouble. It looks kind of cute, but if you were a hamster would you like to be put in a ball like that ? I'd feel claustrophobic for sure. Here is another version. Perhaps these even come complete with motorcycle covers. Cute and funny though but just don't know how the hamster feels.
Anyhow, Hamlet Jackson Furball hasn't come out from his hiding just yet. He kind of freaked out when we took him out and put him in a shoe box so that Bonnie could stroke him. I suppose he'll come out later tonight to do his evening exercise.
