semester and now only eats the sunflower seeds in his food mix. And
that he hisses like a little monster. And when he's really happy
(a.k.a. when he's eating), he makes really cute happy squeaks.
I also didn't know just how fat a hamster could get, and how far Reggie
was willing to go to get food. Because he eats. Everything. And if I
