There was a bit of a breakthrough with Croûton after I got her a piece of bamboo root. I knew from Happy Hamsters that hamsters like (and need) really cluttered enclosures but it's only over time that I've figured out how to fit more stuff into it. I also had to upgrade her wooden house … Continue reading Croûton Breakthrough

This Is What Fascism Looks Like
Our government is demonstrating the early/mid stages of a totalitarian government. That disability benefit which took me years to get, alongside failing those dehumanising Personal Independent Payment assessments, keeping me in poverty and helpless (and most importantly hopeless) but for the financial help of family members? Well, with the government's budget announcement today that benefit … Continue reading This Is What Fascism Looks Like
She Let Me Stroke Her 😭
Croûton let me stroke her a bit! —on three occasions now. I did in the end have to buy some metal moulding strips and glue them to the chewable edges around the bottom of the enclosure to stop her chewing, which made her depressed again for a day, but it's solved the problem! I think … Continue reading She Let Me Stroke Her 😭

My Hamster Hates Me 😢
Croûton had some teething issues during the first 10 days after adopting her…she started chewing part of the base of the wooden enclosure, which I knew was a possibility beforehand but she was fine for most of the first week. After a few days I emailed Happy Hamsters about it, and also realised that her … Continue reading My Hamster Hates Me 😢
In This Economy
Every week I question "Why am I paying £120 again for 50 minutes with the psychologist?". But then I remember that's just the price of empathy, since when I tried seeing cheaper therapists they weren't up to the mark. That's just what it costs to get to speak to someone with equal or greater levels … Continue reading In This Economy
Democracy And Resilience
All I can think when looking at images from the Turkey/Syria earthquake is how sad it is the combination of populous countries lacking self-determination with the location where they're situated. Turkey had the funds to be more resilient to earthquakes but lack the self-determination so the money and opportunity is squandered through corruption. Haiti has … Continue reading Democracy And Resilience
La Grande Crouton!
My previous hamster 25 years ago was a male golden Syrian hamster named Stephen. Crouton is a female and she's massive 😅. She's a giant fluffy potato. 100% chonky and showing no signs of being 2 years old! She's been exploring everywhere and building an underground fortress. https://vimeo.com/796209610 https://vimeo.com/796142719 https://vimeo.com/796142573 🌪
Ready For Crouton!
I got the multi-chamber hide in time! It's replaced the platform I initially had. I might shorten it and add it back later. I've now scattered food and forage around the enclosure :), hidden some monkey nuts and given her a fresh carrot :D. She'll be here in less than 6 hours! Multi-chamber hide with … Continue reading Ready For Crouton!
