Another hamster went to the big wheel in the sky. Chewie-Chewbacca, we will miss how you gave no fucks about predator-prey relationships, has incredible upper body strength and a complete disregard for cranial trauma.

Our hamsters live longer on a diet of fortified breakfast cereal, veggie peelings and digestive biscuits.

She’s getting a lot less skittish to pick up and handle and I think she’s actually enjoying it. The only thing though is that she’s not yelling “Human! Feed me, Human!” while Katy is in the UK with Bean.
