Over on Mr. Lady’s blog she wrote about her kids getting a hamster. I love pets. We have 2 cats, and a dog.
My sons, though, have never had pets. Their mother didn’t like animals. So imagine my surprise when the youngest one, aged 18 calls me to tell me that he is getting a hamster.
I don’t see anything good coming out of this.
This is the child who has a hard enough time keeping track of himself, much less another sentient being. I am envisioning the withered corpse of a rodent in a cage in my sons room.
Not a pretty sight.
