: 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.

: -dtg.

: McSpotlight: For the record, yes, the Golden Hamster (Mesocricetus Auratus) is spelt without a 'p' in...

Weather out of laziness dear. Don't you mean whether.
Before you publicly correct other people's spelling and grammar, make sure your own house is in order. Anyway, I think it looks better with a pin it.
