As the headline states my secret hamster is no longer a secret. Thought it best to reveal my hamster’s existence to my mother. I wanted to because I felt no need to keep Rosco a secret any more.
I got the hamster on an impulse but also I needed something that I had to take care of where no one else could. In order to keep Rosco alive I had to feed her, provide for her, water her, and give her treats. However, this was back in the summer.
Now, by telling my mother, I can provide for her more. I can get a cage that is kitten-proof. (Right now I have the 4th, 6th, and 7th Harry Potter and The Historian books sitting on top of the cover to Rosco’s aquarium to keep Doom-Cat out.) I can also buy a wholesale bag of bedding. But I did not tell mom of her existence so I can buy large items and not have to lie about what they are for.
I wanted to tell mom because it wasn’t necessary to keep my hamster a secret. The reason I bought her isn’t affecting me now; at least not in the same way. I’m over my late cat’s death. I no longer want to disappear as I did then.
