Julie’s youngest daughter Lucy was being a bit of a handful this weekend. Lucy is in the middle of one of those cantankerous phases where she is set on challenging the rules.
One of the rules is that her hamster, Snowball, has to stay in it’s cage. Determined to have her own way, Lucy pulled Snowball out of her cage to pet her. Snowball bit Lucy, causing Lucy to drop Snowball outside of her cage.
Julie heard what sounded like stomping, so she went to investigate. She found Lucy standing on a step stool trying to clamp her hands down on Snowball. Instead of letting Lucy continue to play Whack-A-Mole with her hamster, Julie ran in, scooped up the hamster, and told Lucy to open the cage.
Julie came away with no bites, but Snowball really got a good chomp on Lucy before everything got crazy. Once Snowball was back in her cage, she burrowed down into her cedar chips until all that could be seen of her was her nose drinking off the water drip bottle.
