An entry for The Book of the Blindingly Obvious

"If, when you reach into the cage, your hamster falls on its back and starts shaking, it doesn't trust you yet."

    At the vet, my hamster jumps several feet into the air while screaming as loudly as I suspect a hamster could possible scream -- her mouth wide open and her teeth bared -- before falling on her back and bouncing around like popcorn.

    I wonder if that means she doesn't trust my vet yet. ;)

  2. Thanks so much for that story, Dana--I can see it so vividly, especially the part about your hamster bouncing around like popcorn!

    I laughed so hard--poor vet!
