When Hamsters Attack!

I have a deep, dark secret that I want to confess to you: I love hamsters. I am especially fond of the teensy Russian dwarf hamsters, Phodopus sungorus, particularly their impossibly tiny fuzz-covered feet. So, I was surfing the web during the wee hours this morning instead of sleeping, as usual, and found the most delightful website.

When Hamsters Attack is more than simply a collection of news stories about hamsters committing crimes and a list of the Top Ten Most Wanted Hamsters, because it also includes an advice column written by Squiggles the hamster, a list of the top eleven ways to avoid hamster attacks, and it even includes some online hamster video games for you to enjoy! If you love hamsters, then this is the place for you, and if you don't love hamsters, then this site will change your attitude towards them forever.
