Dear Pikatchu

Dear Pikatchu,

When I first got a hamster I didn’t expect it to be this difficult.

I mean, I didn’t think it was going to be sunshine and rainbows all of the way either, but I didn’t think that a hamster would absorb so much of my time and leave such a massive impact on my life.

But I’m not here to complain.

Taking care of a pet is a journey. It takes time, it takes money. There will be times where you will feel like you made a mistake. This is not for me. Taking care of a pet is not for me. Until you look into their big eyes and realize that it is so worth it.

There are so many things that Pikatchu (my hamster) does that make me angry and give me those moments where I wonder if I should be taking care of a pet. But at the end of the day, I can still tell you with passion that the most important thing to me in the world is that little hamster.

Its funny how something so small can have such a big impact on your life. If I had to take one thing out of a burning room what would I take? My hamster. If I had to sacrifice chocolate for the whole world or save my hamster, I would chose the hamster.

I don’t know what it is, but a fuzzy little creature has captured my heart and stuffed it in its cheeks and now we have a bond that will never be broken.

No, you can’t have it all. You can’t scrimp on money and have the same routine because you just got a hamster. But even though it seems crazy, I have never been happier in my life with a small companion by my side.

Pikatchu,

Thank you for being my little angel. I will never forget you. I can’t wait to make many more memories in the years to come.

Love you to the moon and back.

Iris
