The Akemann household is becoming a critter paradise. First a fish, then a cat, and now a hamster. The fish got our feet wet, the cat warmed our laps, but what was the hamster going to add? I wasn't convinced, but after three months of discussion with my almost-9-year-old I obliged. Now we have Fozzy Bear running the wheel each night.
When our good friends came over to meet Mr. Bear, the pieces fell into place. Fozzy became a live challenge for creative play when they used the recycling box to make a Hamster Maze. The options were endless, the giggles were incessant, and the hamster was far more interesting than the Zhu Zhu Pet middleman. Cute little guy.
