Like the rest of the world I would suspect there are a lot of pets in need of adoption anyway. Around here we even have rescues for hamsters and guinea pigs.

They will be ex-hamsters.

This is actually the song from the beginning of Disney's animated "Robin Hood".  The scat/hum is done by Roger Miller ("King of the Road") and played at double speed to get that "hamster" feel to it.

And now was one to believe that there was nowhere a god of hogs, to whom this hog personality was precious, to whom these hog squeals and agonies had a meaning? Who would take this hog into his arms and comfort him, reward him for his work well done, and show him the meaning of his sacrifice?

"I'll give you my pet hamster, DB Cooper*, when you pry it from my cold, dead hands"

the last four escaped and were only found when we moved

If Pizza Rat (Rattus norvegicus) becomes a vector, we're screwed ... except it looks like we're all going to exposed soon, regardless of our exposure to cuddly mink/hamsters/New York subway rats,

(there's also the concern that a variant that crosses over to hamsters and back to humans  might have different infectious properties)

alechemist: Shame Richard Gere can't adopt them all.

I was going to say you got the wrong rodent but when Gere himself addressed the rumors, he referred to a hamster!

It's not Hong Kong doing this.  It's the CCP.  Hong Kong autonomy was stripped in violation of the treaty with the UK.

With advertising choices like that, it's no wonder that Quiznos is the biggest sub chain in the universe!

They are kind of handy to have around... refilling is a biatch, though...
