“Sure. That’s fine. I think he’s a hamster though.”

“What? A hamschtur? Oh no. He’s a kitty cat. Definwitely.”

“Eli… Right now you have 2 hamsters in your hand. Put one back with his friends. We will only take one home.”

“He a kitty cat. O’tay. I only haves 1 now.”

“Eli, you still have 2 hamsters in your hand. How many should you have?”


“Not 3. Just 1.”

“Oh. Tan I haves 3?”

“You may not. You may have 1. Put 2 hamsters back with their friends and save them for next time.”

“Wellllll…..O’tay. I sees you later ofther kitty cats. You stays wifths you fwriends. And I takes your 1 fwriend home to my new house to pwlay.”


EDIT: After the freaked out text message from my husband, I must add that this was a play, stuffed hamster and not a real one. It’s okay, Coach. I have not added to our menagerie 😉
