You're stuck in rush-hour traffic... When... out of the corner of your eye... you're being passed by a hamster in it's playball...

(A happy ending in Carlisle)

I am heartened to know that a good Samaritan saved the little nipper.

That is the most precious story I've heard in years. Just visualize the little guy , unable to stop. Bless that man who thought to rescue him. The poor little fella.

I'd love to hear the hampster's side of the story.

Me too!

I heard recently on a science show about the brain that even teeny brains have similar emotional structures to ours.

Ohhh poor little Treacle!!! He was so lucky that that man saw him.

And lucky that the person who found him wasn't someone who would think it funny to kick his playball into traffic or something equally as sick.

Wild story. At least the drivers can take comfort in the fact that:
They didn't make treacle of Treacle.
They were sane and not seeing things.

Never underestimate the intelligence of any creature! Except for certain Wall Street traders, but that's beside the point.

If you EVER get a chance to see this nature doc, called "Spiders from Mars," it is a treat:

If, for arachnophobic reasons, you can't watch it, listen to it from the other room. These little beings have brains the size of grains of salt, and incredible problem solving ability. Unlike some politicians, but that's beside the point.
