My Virtual Pet

I have two cats and have been thinking about getting a Chihuahua dog.   I also have a virtual pet.   His name is Harold the hamster.   This little guy sits on my iGoogle homepage.   Sometimes I feed him and play with him.   Sometimes I don’t.   He doesn’t care.   Most of the time he sleeps.

He has one of those wheels that he spins on for exercise.   I guess it’s a hamster version of ellipticals. He likes it when I run my mouse over him.   He follows the mouse wherever it goes within his environment.   I can click and hamster food pellets appear for him to eat.   He even drinks from his water bottle.   Too cute!
