Pocket pets

The CDC has announced that "pocket pets", e.g. the hamster that shares this study, are potential carriers of salmonella. This is bad news for the hamster owner, who is morally opposed to hand washing. The CDC would approve of the effect that hamster has had on the cat -- the very elderly cat has succeeded in jumping onto the hamster cag. This feline study suggests that with the proper motivation, even the very infirm can be helped to exercise. The hamster, of course, is terrified, which can't be good for its cardiovascular health, but you can't have everything.
