Concern over rodent's reaction post-washing proved accurate. Its anger towards us has been noticable and alarming, the most concerning of which is its new tendacy to throw its fecal matter at a photograph of us that happened to be near its cage. Suspect rodent has been hoarding feces for days to throw at photo.

The photograph has been moved to a safe location.

Mood: grossed out

The stench released by rodent unimaginable, despite weekly cage cleanings. Determined drastic measures need to be taken. The decision has been made to clean the rodent as well, using a damp rag. Wetting down of rodent has revealed a number of facts:
1. Its fluffiness was contributing little to its overall girth - it truly is massive.
2. Rodent does not like water very much.
3. Rodent looks seriously "bad-ass" while wet.
The cleaning of cage and rodent has helped to control the stench, though concerns over the ramifications of such an action have arisen. Rodent seems to be even more tempermental and unfriendly.

Mood: N/A

Purchased new, larger wheel for rodent due to it breaking the spirial walkway up to it's old wheel. Again suspect extreme weight to be the cause of the breakage. It seems wholly disinterested in working out in new wheel. Rodent converted wheel to bed by filling it with paper and wood shavings. Continued emptying of new wheel will not persuade rodent that wheel is not a bed.

Irritation at rodent increasing dramatically.

Mood: P.O.ed

Rodent escaped today. Was quickly caught and returned to cage, its ability to run severly hindered by its extreme size, however it did manage to spread an alarming amount of fecal matter in carpet. How the rodent managed to escape cage proves interesting, as the door to the cage is difficult to open. Suspect rodent threw its massive girth at door, turning into a large, fluffy battering ram, forcing door open. Security has been increased in the hopes to avoid future such incidents.

Mood: Vaguely amused

Continued observation of the rodent has lead to a decision by all parties involved : it is not a hamster. Continued research into its possible species has been unsuccessful. Rodent has stumped local biologists as well as pet store from where it was purchased, all the while it continues to balloon. Its size is now reaching that of a large orange, perhaps even a small grapfruit, despite careful monitoring of food distribution. Suspect complete and total inactivity cause of huge size. Suspect rodent too damn big to fit into wheel. Plan to purchase larger wheel, though there is the concern that local pet supply store will not carry "plus size" wheels.

Mood: irritated

Purchase of tubes has turned out to have been a poor decision. The rodent chews relentlessly on them. Has been suggested that chewing is the animal's attempt to widen them to accomadate its increasing girth. The tubes have also presented a new trait of laziness in it. Rather than climbing back down the tubes it has taken to releasing its arms and just dropping to the bottom. Witnesses of said behaviour has elicited both laughter and questions of the normalcy of the animal.

Mood: regretful

Size of rodent continues to increase. Discussions on whether a new, larger cage will need to be purchased begun. Decision pending. The purchase of colourful tubes seems to have mollifed the animal and it appears to enjoy crawling through them. Concern has arisen over whether it will be able to fit through new tubes for much longer.

Mood: Inexplicable

Noticed recent odd behviours, including a tendancy to sleep in food bowl. Worry over the mental state of pet increasing.

Observations of our new pet have presented some questions as to what said pet actually is. It appears to be extremely twitchy, and is growing at an alarming rate, beyond the size of a normal adult hamster. His grey colour suggests that he may be some sort of a squirrel or rat half-breed.

Mood: Confused

Today my roomate and I purchased a hamster at our local pet store. We selected the hamster that looked the most active and interesting, as well as cute. The cage purchased is brightly coloured and hopefully interesting for the hamster.

Mood: Optimistic
