say hi to chunky



Chunky the hamster, originally uploaded by kellypuffs.

This is Chunky, the Girl’s newest pet … the tiniest of tiny hamsters.

Hamster, mouse… how do they know?

Sir Chunky is staying with us temporarily until the Girl arranges suitable lodging at her place.

At least that’s what she SAID. There WAS that $20 pinned to his cage….

Anyway, so far I’m finding hamster/mice to be unsatisfying pets. They hide under their bedding and sleep all day, and emerge only in the dead of night for some midnight hamster-wheel spinning.

The cats are intrigued. Riveted, one might say.

We have him safely out of reach … we hope!

  1. 1. Given the size… How was the name “chunky” arrived at?
    2. “They hide under their bedding and sleep all day, and emerge only in the dead of night for some midnight hamster-wheel spinning.” – sound like anyone you know??

  2. 1. You’d have to ask the Girl. I was not consulted in that dept. Several excellent options spring to mind immediately: Cat Chow, Nibbles, Amuse-bouche…. the list goes on…..
    2. I guess I would make for an unsatisfactory pet as well. 🙂

  3. Wasn’t that the name of the murderous toy in the horror movie?

    …I could see it. He probably has a heart of pure menace.

    dbk, actually thinks “amuse-bouche” is brilliant
