Default Please stay safe

Hi

So when I got home on Friday, Theodore came out of his hide to grab a meal worm treat from me. As he was chomping away I said to him .. "So little buddy, I'm not sure if you turn on the TV while am at work but if you do, you must be kind of concerned with all the news." "I don't want you to worry" I continued, "as you have three months of food in the kitchen (not to mention your own horde) and at least a month of meal worms in the fridge!"

"Ok Hamster Dad" he said as he looked up from his treat. "And I'll try to stay off the news for awhile when you're not here".

Seriously though - Theodore and I would like everyone in our Hamster Community to know that we hope you all can stay safe and well in these strange times.

And so it goes ...

Aww same to you. I thank god for my hammies, they help keep me sane normally as I am housebound with a chronic illness, and they are helping even more now. I like the fact that the hamsters and the birds I can watch from my window have no idea what is going on and just carry on as normal. My sister in law just dropped 2 bags of hamster food off for me this morning.

Just to cheer everyone up, Moo has stolen a teaspoon. I put one in his cage with a bit of rice on and it has disappeared. Our hammies at least do not understand what is going on.

Everyone else has all these cute little moments, meanwhile I have a dog who refused to let me just have one tiny section of the couch to myself - I guess nothing makes him understand what personal space is.

That did make me laugh Serendipity I wonder what he's done with it, added a new treasure to his hoard...

Thank you RJS and everyone else. Kind thoughts in extraordinary times.
Moo made me chuckle Serendipity. His idea of a hoard has expanded. Sometimes Maestro doesn’t just take his veggie treat from his special shell but the shell disappears and I have to hunt it down.
Stay safe and well everyone and the hammies too.

Thank RJS, you too.

Well I'm I'm the high risk group along with all my siblings. I went to Tesco and Aldi today to stockpile some essentials as I won't be able to get out as if we all get it (me and my siblings) we're all f****d.

No bloody painkillers ANYWHERE which is great considering my joints are funky and dislocate all the time. There was none of my soap I use and ive only found one that doesn't react on my skin.

I'm gluten and dairy intolerant and that was a task trying to get any of the things I can eat/drink. No veggies anywhere or meats so for meals I'm screwed.

So the virus may not get me but because of inconsiderate a**holes I'll probably starve to death instead. So whoever finds my body, be warned I probably wasn't able to shower for a while and smell like a wow wow.

As for bog roll. I'll just wipe my a** on the grass like a demented dog with worms. Just someone come and help get me up though, yeh?

Also those of you who have neighbors or relatives that are at high risk, please check that they are ok and have everything that they need during these times.

Thank you, and sorry for the rant.

That was a very sweet post RJS. I can just imagine the conversation you had with Theodore.

The world seems to have gone to the edge of some sort of precipice the last few days. Last night in South Africa, as in many other countries around the world, we were told that there is an almost total indefinite travel ban. Today there is a mood of serious unease everywhere, people constantly sanitizing hands, stifling coughs and worrying about what is going to happen.

Being in the airline industry and having almost no passengers to fly as of tomorrow my roster for the next month at least has been cancelled so I will be at home until further notice, hoping the company can weather this period.

Uncertain times indeed.
