Yeah, it was a bit sad when we had a few left. We found an albino hamster that was lost like 2 weeks before we found him again. He was missing a finger and part of his ear. He was one of the last hamsters we had.
When I joined I had about 40 hamsters and by my birthday of 2009. Hamsterdam had collapsed and fallen apart, and every citizen died. I had a dog for about two weeks (she was a good dog, but we just couldn't handle her), and I lost her in July, and then in August, after my bro and mom got home from my mom's family reunion in Virginia, she brought another dog named Buddy, and he's the only pet we've had since.
Once I did have a rabbit, and I nurtured some squirrels after her mom abandoned the two.
Well, I have to read a book suggested by my teacher for my book report, called Surviving the Applewhites. I'm reading Gathering Blue and Messenger because I really liked the Giver. And I'm reading Quidditch Through the Ages, and Deathly Hallows (up until chapter 24) in celebration of the movie. I'm reading all seven before Part 2 next year though.
