Naked Mole Rat :(

Sorry I haven't posted in a while. I've been busy. So an update: Speedy now looks like a naked mole rat on the back half of his body. I'm so sad! He lost a little bit of his cuteness. His favorite food is pumpkin seeds or blueberries or strawberries or cheese or just about anything you give him access to.  Even if he's a little more ugly, that ok with me. I still love the little Speedy guy!

Show and Tell

Hi everyone! So, on Thursday, Speedy took a little trip to my school for sharing. My teacher told everyone that we had a special guest. Of course, I knew who it was. Everyone started guessing that it was the guidence counselor, and my teacher said that was who it is. So at 10:30 Speedy arrived in my classroom. I took about 40 questions, and the kids were allowed to come up and take a close look at Speedy. He totally showed off (all his cuteness!). He groomed himself and ran on his wheel for about 2 seconds (but that was enough). Everyone thought that he was about the cutest thing ever! Total highlight of the day. THe only problem was my teacher rand the chime to quiet everyone down and I think Speedy tried to comit suicide he launched himself off of his second floor and tried to burrow away from the noise! Well, thanks for reading!


Hi everyone! Todays post is about food (if you get hungry when people talk about food just get something to eat now). So lately, Speedy has been very excited when we bring him his food. We feed him a tablespoon of food a day from little measuring spoon. The other day when I was feeding him, he tried to climb the spoon to see what was in it, but when I poured it into his dish he ran away. This morning when I fed hin he tried to climb the spoon again, but he didn't run away from the noise. I guess he learned (really really quickly) that the noise means food. If humans could learn like that, then we would be geniuses by the time we could walk. Honestly, I think certain people who make the same mistake over again, could really use the extra help. Thanks for reading!

Let's Move!

Hi everyone! Sorry I didn't post on Monday. I tried to make time, but I had a lot of homework to do. So anyway, this post is about some serious exercising. Take a look at these!

      A while back, someone asked about a giant hamster ball and Tokyo, I'm still trying to post that video. Thanks for reading! See you guys next week!

Hi everyone! I recently discovered Speedy's love of TV. I found this out because one night, he was running in his ball while we were watching TV. Then the highlight of the show came on and Speedy stopped running, turned and stared at the TV. I guess he felt my family's eyes on him because he started running again. Later, he did the exact same thing. It was hilarious! I mean, I don't know of any other hamster who loves TV. So here is a list of Speedy's other hobbies.

  • sleeping                 
  • running
  • ripping
  • gathering
  • hoarding
  • sleeping
  • weaving        
  • eating
  • playing
  • running away from people
  • sleeping 
  • digging       
These are some of Speedy's hobbies. Let me know if you have any suggestions! I'm trying to post on Mondays, so that's when you should check!  Thanks for reading!!

What Does Speedy Dream About?

Hi everyone! When ever I see Speedy sleeping, I wonder what he is dreaming about. I can tell he's dreaming when his rear end bounces up and down and goes in and out when he breathes. These are some of the things I think Speedy might dream about.

  • Sunflower Land - where all the trees are sunflowers and everything is made of sunflower seeds
  • Corn pops - lollipops made of corn
  • Strawberry/Carrot Cupcakes - cupcakes made of strawberries and carrots
  • pellets
  • blackberries
  • fruit salad
  • running
  • sleeping
  • cotton fluff
   His dreams could easily fit into The Night Before Christmas like this. And visions of sunflowers danced in his head. It could totally work. What do you think Speedy dreams about? Tell me in your comments! Thanks for reading!
