Some interesting things are going on around hamster central. For one thing we are changing hosting providers with godaddy.com. The hosting is more affordable and thanks to the donators at Hamster Central we were able to afford it. We are waiting for the domain name to transfer to the new host and then we can begin the process of moving everything over. So for anyone visiting the website, you may encounter some down time in the next week while all the transferring takes place.

Some interesting topics have been posted of late in the HC site.. including this one PETA investigations conducted in two PetSmart Stores. discussion on site is under the text link. Pretty interesting work.. the article summary is as follows...

PETA undercover investigations conducted in two PetSmart stores in 2006 and 2007.

Away from public view and off-limits even to many of PetSmart's employees, PetSmart's back rooms hide away the immense suffering of the littlest companion animals.

At the PetSmart store in Manchester, Connecticut, a location that PetSmart boasts of as having an "exceptional pet care record," PETA's undercover investigation documented more than 100 animals—including hamsters, domestic rats, lizards, chinchillas, and birds—who lay hopelessly, just waiting to die, in the store's "Sick Room," deprived of desperately needed veterinary care and wasting away out of customers' sight

I certainly had some things to say about the issue! But moving along to something nicer... I took more pictures of Gwen today. I heard her up drinking from her water bottle and took some time to offer her a few treats. I had her with me on the sofa and she made this funny noise, reminded me allot of a guinea pig lol. I don't usually get to take her out much because she sleep all day and wakes up just as I'm off to bed! maybe she was just expressing a bit of concern, seeing as the cat was near by. Or perhaps she was just in the mood to go back to sleep, hehe.

In other hammy news.. some of you might recall the thread I started here ion HC called "Possibly the ultimate cage set up I've seen" If not, it was originally about a really nice looking hamster condo a person made from the New York Hamster House (NYHH). I talked to my father in-law about it and he has agreed to build it for me! Of course I need to come up with the cash to afford the project. But I'm super excited. I'm sure it will be a few months before I see this in progress. Guess Ill have to put extra cash into the hammy fund! Ill be working hard!
