Default A celebration of lockdown hamsters!

Hello everybody! I'm feeling quite sentimental and mushy this evening, I wanted to write this thread to celebrate and say thank you to our sweet furry friends for what they do for us, even though they 100% don't realise and probably don't care as long as they get food and playtime!

I live in the UK, specifically central London. We've been in lockdown since mid-December. My two housemates went north to stay with their families around 2 months ago (I spent my birthday by myself - that was a bit depressing!) I went to my parents house for about a week over Christmas, but other than that I've been living alone and working from home ever since.

Alone, apart from my adorable, mental, noisy, infuriating not-so-little Syrian lady Peggy. I think without another soul sharing my living space I would have lost my mind. Having another living creature to care for and talk to (we all do it, don't lie!) I feel has had a positive effect on me in ways I don't think I'll ever fully understand.

Here's a short video of Peggy having a Valentine's treat! happy valentine's from Peggy - YouTube

I think hamsters are perfect little pets, apart from occasionally waking us up in the middle of the night that is, but unfortunately they're never with us for as long as we would like. But little miss Peggy will always have a big place in my heart for keeping me sane through 2020, the year that most of us would probably rather forget.
