The New York Hamster House is even more famous now :)

First, we wowed the US (New York Times, Wall Street Journal). Then, the Netherlands (Ude Og Hjemme). Then, through Telemundo, the entire Spanish-speaking world!

And now I am happy to announce that the New York Hamster House is *adorably* featured in this month's issue of Casa Brutus, Japan's most widely-read architecture and design magazine. We are featured in their life/pet section. See?

I have very fond memories of Japan. I spent around a month there in the spring of 2002, visiting my friend Meghan (Megu-San), who was teaching English there as part of the JET program. Meghan showed me around Kanazawa, where she taught, and also took me to Tokyo and Hiroshima, among other places. I had an AWESOME time. And I learned to count to ten in Japanese. Ichi ni san chi go roku nana hachi ku ju! (I apologize in advance for the awful spelling)
I also fell in love with Afro-Ken and Miffy in Japan. So cute!

Anyway, thanks to dgi for the promotion... and for helping me and the hamsters (and gerbils) of the New York Hamster House spread the word about pet adoption and shelters.

Lastly, welcome to any Japanese readers who made their way to this site! Dozu yoroshiku onegai shimasu!

PS Yes, that is me down there in the "Mother's Data" section. Thank you, Gion, for taking such a totally cute picture of me :)
