i'm not sure where this arguement concerning hamsters is coming from, and i'm assuming that you're talking about the little fuzzy creatures
that are sold in pet stores, BUT the correct spelling of hamster does not include a 'p'.
sorry, mcspotlight, but i really found this to be bothersome, and didn't feel right lettting this go un-noticed.
and before i go, not all children who own hamsters mis-treat them. some kids take good care of thier pets.
and on the other hand, many adults take very poor care of their pets, weather out of ignorance or laziness.
McSpotlight: For the record, yes, the Golden Hamster (Mesocricetus Auratus) is spelt without a 'p' in...
