Moving out soon

So, a couple of days ago, my mom told my sister and I that we need to move out by April. She and her boyfriend won a cruise from the newspaper contest, and they're going on March 30, so they decided that the best thing ever would be for them to get married the day before and use the cruise as their honeymoon. Since he is going to be moving into our house after they get back from cruising, mom has decided that there is no room for Kati and I to stay in the house. Since we are both still in college and not making tons of money, we decided that we will be rooming together for at least the first year. We are now getting busy apartment hunting and putting together all the miscellaneous crap you need when you first move out - trash cans, mop and broom, dish drainer, ect. Both of us are looking forward to not living at home any more, but we wish we had a little more notice and money saved up. Oh well. At least mom gave us a few months' notice and wasn't all like "move out by next month". Anyone know of any good apartments near here?

My little Honeyface passed away last night about 11. I am now hamsterless for the first time in years. I got my first hamster, Munchkin, sometime in late 2001 or early 2002 (all I remember for sure is that it was cold time). My sister got a hamster at the same time (sister hamsters from the same litter). After a while she got tired of taking care of her hamster and passed her on to me. I renamed her Chipper. A year or so later my boyfriend suprised me with a little dwarf hamster I named Cosmo. I also fell in love with a little black bear hamster I named Smokey (the bear). She came along after Munchkin passed but before Chipper. Cosmo also died around this time. I got another hamster named Pumpkin who only was with me a couple months before contracting wet tail, and a Chinese dwarf hamster named Starry. Shortly after that I adopted Fred from a family who had gotten a pet that they shouldn't have for their daughter (she was way too young to take care of a hamster). A couple months after that I got Honey. Smokey died not long before we moved last September and Starry a few months later. Fred passed away last month, as you know, and Honey was my last baby.

I am not planning on getting any more hamsters for a while. I still have 2.5 cats to take care of, plus I am busy enough with school and work that I do not feel I should take on any more responsibilities. I am also still hoping to move out within the next couple of years, and that will take up a lot of my time and energy - not just the move itself, but the effort needed to find a nice apartment before moving. This is not to say I will never have hamsters again, but not in the near future. Plus I hate the fact that they live only a couple of years before they die. I would like to get something like a ferret, chinchilla, rabbit, ect. that lives a little longer. However, if anyone knows of a fuzzy (not a cat or dog) that needs a good home for some reason (accidental litter, allergic, moving), please let me know. I will probably take whatever you have. No bugs please; I have never understood the twisted mind that keeps a giant mutant centipede or spider as a "pet".
