Ziggy and the Talking Hamster

Ziggy and the Talking Hamster

How could I have forgotten about Ziggy and the talking hamster? This is a plush toy for kids that my sister mailed to me last year, and I’ve been in Hawaii for so long I didn’t realize I had this. But there it was, in my bookcase, buried in all of my Lyon Real Estate awards.

It is the cutest thing. Of course, we don’t have any “real” children but we do have cats. And this is our youngest cat, Ziggy, who is a ragdoll, which is pretty much the perfect type of cat. Beautiful dispositions, so playful, lovable and sweet. My friend, JaCi Wallace, gave us this kitten when he was still a baby. He is still growing. He is almost two years old now, but has not reached his full size yet.

All the cats came over to see the hamster, but it was Ziggy and the talking hamster who bonded. Or, maybe it’s just that Ziggy figures every toy in the house obviously belongs to him and him alone.

When you speak out loud, the talking hamster repeats everything you say. Not only does it repeat what you say, but it shakes its body and trembles when it talks.

If you’re looking for hours of entertainment with your cat, the talking hamster is hilarious. Although, when you look closely of the photo of Ziggy and the talking hamster, it looks like Ziggy is thinking, “Hey, I didn’t see your lips move!” Smart kitty yet very suspicious of this amusement attraction on the floor.
