They know how to get down.

RE: What does a hamster know?
We had a hamster. We had a cat. We still have the cat.

Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors.... on Donald J. Trump:

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

Not hamsters, but I have two anoles who are also a lil particular about their food. They eat crickets just fine, but when it comes to fruit flies, they eat em like they're little Doritos with legs. They can't get enough.

UNLESS of course, they'd been dusted with vitamins. Then it's like trying to get a kid to eat his veggies.

Ignorance is not to be ignored.

My friend had a pet hamster. They too had a cat.

One afternoon they returned home to find the dead hamster on her daughter's bed. Like a gift only a cat would understand.

They still have the cat.


But as if to knock me down, reality came around
And without so much as a mere touch, cut me into little pieces

When animals reason, they do it only in linear fashion. 1 leads to 2 leads to 3. The connection between 1 and 2 is made, the connection between 2 and 3 is made, but the connection between 1 and 3 is never made.

They do have the basic emotions, but you have to be careful not to call human constructs "emotion". One example is guilt. It's a human construct. Animals do not feel guilt.

If your dog looks guilty to you, he feels you are angry and is trying to make himself small, letting everything hang down. Looks guilty as heck to us. It's not guilt. He usually has no idea what you are angry about (see linear reasoning, if anything at all happened between his mis-step and your anger, no connection).

Some animals are smarter than others, but they all have linear reasoning and it is up to you to teach within those limitations. All animals can be taught things by using food (even fish). Some animals will do it for affection (like dogs).

Most times people declare the animal stupid, when in reality the human is too stupid to understand how the animal reasons.

I thought you might find this study intriguing. The crows need to get a piece of meat that they can only retrieve with a long stick - the tool. But this tool is in a location such that they cannot reach it, without another tool. They are able to use a different tool to retrieve the correct tool and then the meat.

tomilay,

Thanks for that. Here is one called 'dancing seagulls'. I saw it in the park and turns out that the seagulls are agitating the ground where worms are likely to be, the worms poke their little heads out and .........

But I've also seen one "head butt" a lamb, that was hers, away every time it tried to suckle from her, so we had to take it away and bottle feed it our selves.

All I know is that hamster and human alike...

N.B. Mothers suckle, babies suck.
