A Hamsters Hero

I avoid the news like the plague! Its always so depressing with wars and murders and URGH!
But I stumbled upon a wonderful news article from last year which restored my faith in humanity!

Firefighters give oxygen to hamsters trapped in trailer home blaze

Any headline with the word hamster in it tends to grab my attention but this had got me smiling more so!

When a mobile home was ablaze in Washington, firemen wasted no time in getting to the scene.

Hamsters in the NewsBut even though they made light work of bringing the fire under control, there was another challenge ahead of the brigade: rescuing and saving a family of hamsters.

The crew, from the Lacey Fire Department, relied on ‘pet emergency pocket guides’ to bring the injured rodents back to life – and even used oxygen and first aid to treat the pets.

Hamster being SAVED by a firefighter!

According to KOMO, five rodents – Oreo, Madonna and three unnamed baby hamsters – were recovered. Unfortunately, one of the pets died in the aftermath.

Thankfully, no humans were in the trailer at the time. It is believed the fire was caused by a faulty clothes dryer.

The fire department later tweeted: ‘Yes. Our crews are trained and specially equipped to care for animals that have been rescued from a house fire.’

And if that does warm your heart then I don’t know what will! What a glorious fire service Washington have. I hope I’d have such a caring emergency service team if I ever need!
Round of applause for the animals lovers of the world 🙂

National Hamster Day

Yeah, I bet you didn’t know that this was an actual thing!! ;D

May 10th is official national hamster day!

Not the most widely known celebration but its right up with St. Patrick’s day I swear 😉

National hamster dayNow unless you have a hamster yourself or just have an uncontrollable addiction to cuteness, then this day might not mean very much to you, but for me THIS IS HUGE!!! 😀

And seeing as there is barely any awareness of this incredibly important day, I struggled to find any sort of info on Google for it, I thought it was only fair to make a big fuss over it here!

This national day has gone UNNOTICED for too long!

Here is HamsterDiaries SCREAMING bout it from the rooftops!!! 😀
Pick up your adorable pet, whether they’re a hamster or not, and give them a massive squeeze!
Tell them you love them to bits!
Stroke the ticklish bit at the back of their neck or rub their bellys to show them your appreciation!

This is what this day is all about 🙂 Love and cuddles for hamsters, guinea pigs, rats, mice, gerbils, dogs, cats, bunnys and all other manner of creature big or small!! 😀

Don’t forget to follow via email, all critters welcome, like and share and SHOW YOUR SUPPORT!! 😀
Also feel free to re-blog, spread the national hamster day love and warmth!!!

Top 10 Weirdest Web Searches

I thought I would dedicate this post to all those people out there suffering with Monday Morning Blues. 
These are genuine internet search terms that have people have quite honestly typed into their computers and come across my blog as a result.
Brace yourselves ladies and gentlemen 😛

“My hamster peed in my bed, how can I discipline him?”
If only this tortured hamster owner had commented or asked me! I could have easily told him that 3 minutes on the naughty step without any cuddles or attention is the way to discipline this furry fiend. Sit down with your hamster after this time and ask for an apology! If the hamster refuses to say sorry, leave them on the naughty step for a further 3 minutes. Its the only way these hamster learn anonymous worrier! If all else fails, take treats off the menu! That hamster will eventually crack under the pressure and peeing in the bed will be a distant memory for you both!

“do hamsters love?”
Now this is rather deep and philosophical for my little blogging brain. And perhaps for every other human being. I mean if by love you mean spontaneously crap on your sofa, nibble the cage bars loudly until the early hours of the morning and wee on your nice clean new top when you’re running late for something, then yes – hamsters lovely deeply and more meaningfully than any other mammal on the planet! But if you’re expecting a single red rose and a soppy note on your pillow one morning then I hate to say it but don’t keep your hopes up! They’re just not the romantic type; they’re more of the ‘treat ’em mean, keep ’em keen‘ variety.

“is there such thing as a non smelly hamster”
I could dedicate an entire post for this very question but I will shorten down the message just for this curious web-searcher: Non-smelly hamsters are a mythical creature along with minotaur’s and unicorns. They are not a big as unicorns, its true, but they are in the same realm of Narnia as these majestic beings, just hiding in the shadows. The closest us mortal humans can get to such a rare beast is to clean your poor pets cage out more often!! They only smell if you don’t clean their living space regularly! Oh and if they are a girl hammy on heat then they pong something nasty and there is no amount of cage-scrubbing that will rid you of that odour. Sorry.

“how to milk a hamster”
Firstly, strap your hamster into a pet-safe harness and put your protective goggles and gloves on – safety first kids!! Secondly, locate the hamster’s udder using a magnifying glass and tweezers. Thirdly, are you SERIOUS?!?! Put the hamster down and take a step back. In fact take more than one step back!
Leave the room/neighbourhood.

“is my male hamster fat or pregnant?”
Did you skip biology classes? Get back to school!! Damn!

“hamster porn”
Ooooh an old favourite here at Hamster Diaries. It pops up (s’cuse the pun) every day now. Even with a post titled ‘No Porn Here’, them randy hamster-porn-addicts think its a trick and click to view the post, just incase I’m hiding any saucy pictures! I’ll also mention there was a disturbing ‘hamster up the bum’ search… there are just no intelligent words to comment on that with. Moving on!

“hamster breast milk for sale anywhere”
Are you the same guy who was asking me how to milk your hamster?!?! If yes, please refer to point number 7 for further information. If not and you are a completely different person, have you tried the milk isle at your local supermarket?? I hear Tesco are really widening their range…

“how do I say ‘thank you’ in hamster language”
Great question my friend. When I treat my three hamsters to a new toy or a scrummy new treat, they all seem to thank me by peeing in my pockets or on the sofa. As hamsters don’t have sofa’s, the next best thing is their exercise wheel or gnawed on tunnel. Gently nudge their face with your claws (use a nail file to sharpen them bad boys up, really get into character with this) and reverse into position over your hamsters favourite object. Just when they look at you with a face of thanks, pee on their prized possessions. They will immediately feel the love and affection you hold for them.
Or you could just say ‘squeak, squeaky, squeakity, squeak.’ Essentially they are the same thing.

“can I breast feed my hamster”
No madam, no you can not! NEXT!

“Can you test a hamsters pregnancy with a human pregnancy test?”
Wow. Just wow! I wish there were words for this beautiful statement. Okay let me start off by saying top marks for imagination. Tip top marks there. I would also like to point out the differences between hamsters and humans; they’re different species. I’d imagine this would cause a problem when it comes to using a human pregnancy test (emphasis on the ‘human’ bit of that sentence). Also I’d like to see anyone try to get a hamster to pee on cue over a pregnancy test stick… All thats left after that search term is this highly appropriate meme:

I hope this has cheered up your Monday Blues!

I would like to emphasise that all of these search terms are 100% genuine from my WordPress ‘Search Engine Term’ section of my stat’s page over the entire time I’ve had this blog. I have tidied up the grammar of certain search terms (e.g. capitalised the i’s) for this post and also corrected the spelling of ‘hampsters’ in two of them.

Apart from that, I really couldn’t make this up! Gob-smacked doesn’t even come close! I hope you have enjoyed this! 😀
