Introducing Louis...

Tuesday, 28 December 2010
Just a small post to introduce my readers to the most amazing hamster! I bought Louis from Pets at Home in September 2008. I hate the fact that he is from a pet store because of the way animals are bred to be stocked there however as soon as I saw him I knew he was for me. The type of moment where the animal comes to the front of the cage etc.

He is now just over 2years old and is starting to look his age. There has been a couple of times where the vet has suggested putting him to sleep but I didnt give up on him, changed his diet to suit his condition and hes almost as good as new!

Sometimes I get the feeling that some of the nurses feel that he is "just a hamster" (don't get me wrong others are great and ask me about him when I'm there with my rabbit) and they are quick to not want to try any treatment. But he is my pet and is worth every penny in my eyes. He's always there to cheer me up or do something so insanely cute that it makes me forget whatever is troubling me!


I am a massive animal lover and would love a job in that profession!
Anyone have a pet that they just can't imagine life without?

Introductions are in order...
I'm Charli... 20 from Cardiff Wales

(taken snow day December excuse to wear clothes that you don't mind being snowy)

After stumbling across some blogs on twitter I have decided to start my own! Due to the amount I spend on clothes, makeup and cosmetics etc I felt blogging about them would be like ranting/raving reviewing them with friends!

Thinking of a name was annoying me...I didn't want anything cheesy or something people wouldn't remember. I eventually decided on "Charli..." (said Charli dot dot dot)! I use the fullstops a lot and the "dot dot dot" thing stuck in my head.

A bit about me...

  • Studying Economics, 3rd year...can't promise how regular my blogs will be with my dissertation and the mountain of uni work that has come up from nowhere! Im sure this blog will aslo prove to be a welcome distraction break from all the typing/reading.
  • I LOVE animals! I have a hamster (Louis), rabbit (bertie) and a goldfish (nemo - original name I know..but you will see why when I post a picture). I would love to run an animal sanctuary or rescue place. Dream job would be with animals...nothing to do with economics I know...
  • I have an "other half" :) been together since November 2008 and I'm sure he will appear on here at times.. 
  • Still live at home with Mother Bear and cannot wait to move out!
  • I'm a hoarder and impulse buyer...I have numerous items that will no doubt appear on here...whoops! Although I find there is always a day when I love each and every thing I bought.

I'm not sure what this blog will be about if I'm honest! Who knows....
Still getting used to using all this blogger stuff so please be paitent :)

Charli ...


PS I have an unhealthy obsession with the WWE wrestling.
