When Koby was small (like 3 maybe) he wanted a pet. I thought I was being smart by telling him when he was 8 and baptized he could get one. Little did I know that he would remember and hold me to it. One good thing about renting right now is that I could use that as an excuse to not get a dog or cat. We went to the pet store for some advice and decided on a hamster. I found a cage and wheel/car on ksl for cheap. Koby used his birthday money to pay for the hamster and his food. "Fireball" is a dwarf hamster and actually pretty cute. The boys are having fun with him and so far Koby takes good care of him.
