The hamster

The hamster, haply no guinea pig
An expression figurative
In labs where rats were once selected
The hamster could get vivisected

    sad thought here, Jon. I'm against all animal testing but it seems even worse when carried out on 'cuties'

    I've never had a hamster as a pet. But they are cute.
