An enchanting, heartbreaking story that is so true to life...and very well written!

I was moved to tears...but God does answer Knee-Mail!..and even Herman returned. A very Nice Read!
Thank you.
Wonderful, touching story. I loved how the Hamster came back. We all need to come back now and then. Great Job.
You portrayed your character's feelings very well - and the comparison to the hamster was great! I think your ending was a little too pat, but I know that word limit really makes it tricky. Good work, though.
Charmingly real! A delight to read! (That must have been my 'cousin' Sally! haha!)
I really enjoyed this. I like the fact that I could "see" what I was reading. You are a great painter. I also don't really know what a "pat" ending is. It ended the way you wanted it to... and you are, after all, the author. I look forward to reading more of your work.
