excuse those smileys at the end, they were supposed to be throughout the

Nice story, I may try that as our Hammi tends to poop in his ball as soon as
he gets in it and we have to move him into the second ball and clean the
first :-(

Please do not get offended about this comment, but not all the people here
can read messages in HTML, I know because I posted HTML and got my wrist
slapped *LOL*, however the smiley faces looked great can I use them on my
website?

Hmm...I could have sworn I turned HTML off yesterday...I guess I have to turn it off everytime i post.
 sure, you can use them on your site.  they aren't mine, though.  they're from http://www.hamsterific.com/bbs/BulletinBoard.asp   If you go to post, you'll see an option for inserting them.
