This is my daughter Erica's hampster named "Furby". Furby loved to play in mazes that she would build from lego's and ride in the back of my son Patrick's model cars.
The picture is funny how he is riding in the back, it's like he was hitching a ride because his little legs were tired from running the wheel and getting nowhere!

Ooh, I like hampsters! Hi Furby!

I've thought off and on about getting one (or two...same sex) but I worry that being stared at for hours by 3 kitties might stress it out too much.

When I was little we had a guinea pig "Little Chap". Hampsters are cuter, though, I think. And LC was never very friendly.

Now see, no offense little Furby, but I like guinea pigs better. I had one named Chappie that was so sweet! He would squeal when the crisper drawer was opened in the frig. He new carrots would follow. We'd let him run around our den and he would rest on our chect. He loved pets (my word for being petted). I had plenty of sweet hampsters too. Remember, I guess they still might pkg. it like this way, but remember the boxed hampster food? You punch out the little square to pour it? One of my hampsters escaped one night while I was snoozing, and climbed in the box to fill her cheeks w/food. I'm sure you can guess what I found in the morning. A trapped in the box hampster. She couldn't get out because her cheeks were too full! Too funny.

Love your story. To bad you didn't get a picture of your hamster with her to full cheeks.

Hi Furby,

This is my daughter Erica's hampster. He was a funny little guy always getting into something. He is missed dearly, but we have great memories of him.

I just posted. I guess it didn't work. Anyway. Furby is so cute. He's going to put out the fire. Guess he's earning his keep around the house. (so to speak)

I love the friendly hamsters that you can play with, and this one's a real cutie! We used to have hamsters, but now we have kitties and turtles.

Go read comment #25 again @ TDK. Is that Rosie or the Imposter? It just didn't sound like Rosie to me. And why would she want to know where Rose is? Right?

Was that you?

Yeah, I thought it was weird too, especially since I haven't heard from Rosie in a while-she hasn't answered my emails, yet she was on TDK??? I think we have stalker-imposter.....

No offense to the furb-meister, but I prefer Gerbils. I guess they can tell I am a cat person or something, cause every hamster I've met is mean and bites me! On the other hand, jumpy as they are, gerbils are usually nicer.

Who said it would be torture because of their cats staring? I think thats what Gheeri does to the birdie-along with knocking the cage down.

The d@mn dog ate Gheeri's feather-pole-toy thing last nite. I am so angry. That was Gheeris fave toy (except the jingle-ball in the bathtub). Now it's garbage. :x

Hey Rita,

Furby was the sweetest hampster my daughter had (five of them). He never nipped and loved to be held. He would eat carrots and lettuce from your hand and never once got your finger instead. I know this is not the norm, but he was one that will always be remembered.

This is a great picture. You should blow it up and make it into a poster. If this comment is a repeat of one I just sent, just pass it off as my being a bubble head. I'm having a rough day today!

Anywho, Rita, I love that you're showing all different animals. Between you, Kat and TDK, I get such a wide variety. ( and not a whole lot of work done, I think it's an addiction)
