I loved Bella more than she knew. She fought so hard this last month. Unfortunately Bella passed away yesterday.

I am so sad and alone now.

I need attention too!

Hello! This is Joshua writing again.

So, yes, Bella is still taking medication, she is steadily getting better yada-yada-yada. Ok? Time to talk about ME and MY adventures now!

Nick has been neglecting me. He cleans my cage regularly, he feeds me everyday, and at night he leaves my cage-door open as he used to do. But that's all. No time for games with little Joshua. No sir. He is always checking on Bella, he gives her food, he gives her medicine. Bella this, and Bella that. Just Bella. 

This made me mad! I am sure you understand! 

So what I did was this. One night, when he left my cage empty, I run to the kitchen and hid in my hiding spot, inside a cupboard. I slept there thinking how fitting was my punishment. Whey Nick would wake up, he wouldn't find me in my cage. Because he knows that every time I return there to sleep, he wouldn't worry. And he would forget about Bella and think about me! 

Of course I had forgotten that this was a 'known' hiding spot of mine, and he easily found me next morning, while I was sleeping. He casually woke me up and put me back into my cage.

This made me mad! I am sure you understand!

Time to find a new hiding place, I thought. And so, I spent the next few days searching for one. And boy, did I find the perfect hiding place. Under their bed! Ha! They would never suspect it. They are going to spent ALL their free time worrying and searching for me, and I am going to be under their bed! How ironic! You see, their bed is kind of weird. Under the mattress, is full of little drawers. In order to search beneath the bed, they have to remove the drawers first. It is rather inconvenient for them.

Once Nick opened my cage, I run out, and went into his computer room. This is where he keeps a bag of peanuts. I started stockpiling. I used to put three of those peanuts in my mouth (it hurts, but it's doable), and transported them under the bed, behind one of those drawers. When I run, the peanuts that were in my mouth did a funny noise, like someone rolling the dice, but Nick didn't notice. He was occupied with a silly game called Mass Effect or something.

Once I had a decent stockpile of peanuts and tissue paper, I closed my eyes, and waited. I was drunk with the sweet taste of revenge. And then I got a bit hungry. Well, the peanuts were there so I started eating. The noise of opening the peanuts was greater than I thought, and Nick started to investigate the origin of the noise. DAMN! It wasn't long before he removed the drawer and found me. I remained hidden just in case he missed me, but no... he was relentless in his search! He found me, put me back in my cage, and confiscated my stockpile! He even took pictures so he can laugh at me with his friends.

Hiding, praying he will not notice me.
Ah, crap. He is still there. What..? He took a picture as well???

This made me mad! I am sure you understand.

I wanted to get even. I wanted to get even more than anything. I HAD to get even. I thought about eating. I would eat EVERYTHING. This would drive Nick broke, or so I thought. However, it hurt me more than it hurt them, because I did more poop than usual and my cage started to smell. Also I started getting fat. No, this wasn't the solution. I kept thinking of a plan. I didn't forget about the injustice that had been done to me. Not for a minute. I found out that I think better when I run on my wheel. In the night. When Nick sleeps. Plus, this makes noise, and since he keeps my cage in his bedroom. it HAS to irritate him. So I spent all night running... thinking!

But I couldn't think of a good revenge-plan. And then, it happened. Nick, while sleeping, dropped his pillow next to my cage. Very near. I could almost touch it. This was my moment. This was the moment of truth. Justice would be server and my ill-treatment would be avenged. So next morning, they found this.

I won something, I won something!

Hello everybody, I am Joshua the Hamster and I am very happy!

Today, I won an award. From two people! It's an award for my blog. I didn't know people were reading my stories. Turns out they do! And they also nominated me!

I don't know how this 'award' works, but I will have to follow the guidelines just because it sounds fun. So here we go!

The Versatile Blogger Award

I got this award from Squeeze and Onion, who nominated me in their blogs. Thank you!
I wish my mom, Maza, and my dad Monty, were here to see this. It was my dad, Monty that started this blog. He would be so proud. I am sure that he will read this from the net-cafe that he frequents in Rainbow Bridge! I can't wait for Bella to get well so I can tell her the good news. She is going to be so happy! 

Hm, I guess I got to thank the humans too. It's their internet I am using after all, so thank you Nick and Ira.

Ok, so the rules of this award are as follows:
  •  In a post on your blog, nominate 15 fellow bloggers for The Versatile Blogger Award.
  •  In the same post, add the Versatile Blogger Award.
  •  In the same post, thank the blogger who nominated you in a post with a link back to their blog.
  •  In the same post, share 7 completely random pieces of information about yourself.
  •  In the same post, include this set of rules.
  •  Inform each nominated blogger of their nomination by posting a comment on each of their blogs.
7 random things about myself...hmm...
  • I like sunflower seeds and peanuts
  • I like hiding in the kitchen, inside a cupboard, or under the bed, inside a drawer. And I hate it when Nick and Ira find out where I am hiding
  • Humanspeak/English is my second language. I am not very good at it...
  • I love running on my wheel
  • I hate being alone, so I usually hang around in the room where the humans are. That's usually the pc-room, or the television-room
  • I'm like exploring
  • I am secretly in love with Bella

I am supposed to nominate 15 blogs.. Oh god. I rarely use the internets, because Nick is usually on the computer. When the computer is free (ie when Nick is at work) I barely have time to blog, let alone visit other blogs. I will try my best to nominate as many blogs as possible.

I guess I need to read more blogs! Which I will do once I finish my next blog entry. It's about... ME! And my adventures!!!

Joshua, the nominated hamster!
