Not content with a dog that thinks its a toddler, 3 cats and 40 tropical fish, i have now gone and bought a hamster! Am i insane i hear you ask. It is true that they are a lot of work to care for properly but im lucky in the fact that my hubby and kids do their share. i find that each of my pets helps my fibro in their own way. My dog for instance;on a good day i love to take a toddle around the park or field with her, it gives me a kick up the bum when i just want to hide away. My cats are wonderful for just sitting on your knees at night watching television and stroking them....its so theraputic! My fish are right at the side of my chair and again,they are so relaxing to sit and watch. So although keeping pets is hard work there are also benefits for the family and for me too, although where the new hamster fits in with this will remain to be seen! (The poor thing hasnt even got a name yet lol!)
