A few days ago I bought Jacob the Syrian Hamster one of those clear, plastic balls he could run around in. He took to it right away. I call it The Cruiser. K T Cat just came into the bedroom where Jacob is cruisin' in The Cruiser and she doesn't know what to make of it at all. Here was a yummy rodent protected by a massive, plastic sphere rushing this way and that across the floor. She backed off, but watched with huge, saucer eyes.
If I had a decent video camera, I'd get it on YouTube to share. As it is, I'll have to play with my digital camera that has a low quality, 30-second movie capability tomorrow night and see what I can do.
The Cruiser is way cool.
Update: I took a video of The Cruiser and uploaded it to YouTube. You can see it here.
