"I wish I had a hamster"
Six little words and a thought... never spoken or even imagined until today.
I'd want to give him right back!
But today, I have a finished Hamster Cozy and no model. I tried it on a TP tube, but... No. I went in search and came up with bookend -- a mouse holding the books up -- but he's a mouse. Mice are much smaller than hamsters, and he was drowning in the little sweater. I don't have many figurine-type things.
One day, at a price too low to resist, and because it might come in handy as a gift for a certain pig-lover, I bought this:
A wooden pig-shaped toothpick holder. I think. It could be used for serving hors d'oeuvres -- li'l porkies? -- but there aren't that many holes and it would require constant refilling.
Today, it works fabulously as a hamster sweater model.
