I’ve had my stuffed hamster since I was about 12 years old(over 20 years). It has always been a conversation piece in our home when people came to visit. I had placed “Oatmeal” the stuffed hamster at the front door to take to work. We had gone out for the night, and when we came home our dog Narf decided that he thought Oatmeal looked like a good meal. There was both laughter and tears when discovered. Narf may be 15 years old, but he’s still got it!
