Confessions and rants of a hamster owner
This is what pet owners do when they're bored. They become their pet's paparazzi. But it is extremely difficult to photograph hamsters because they can move faster than Lindsay Lohan on coke.
PP Boy looking like a mini-kitty here. *smirk* Booty-cleaning yoga pose. Surprisingly, this is his favourite eating position. He would stuff his cheeks full with food, then run into his house or sand bath container, lie on his back, and start snacking away. Yes, that's is. Roll around in your litter box more. As if you aren't smelly enough already. Heh.
Sometimes I really hate pet shops in Kuching because it is impossible to find good hamster stuff. I have no choice but to use pine shavings for PP Boy although I know that pine causes respiratory problems in small animals because there aren't any other alternatives like paper or corncob bedding.

I also want to get some toys for PP Boy, but in Kuching, the only hamster toy available is the wheel or hamster ball. Oh, and the hamster in the picture above is (the late) Fufu, the most famous hamster in Singapore. I think he's using paper-based bedding which does not cause skin allergy and breathing problems in hamsters. And he's got some Japan-imported timothy grass in his cage too. Lucky boy.
There are no hamster treat sticks in Kuching. :(
These are hamster vitamins. The only hamster vitamins I've seen around are those that are added to the drinking water and they turn the water dark green. Like moss. Eww.
Will someone please open a KL/Singapore quality pet shop in Kuching?
