Pikachu came to us on the same day that Michaela passed away. I was feeling sad about our little Michaela, and decided to get another female hamster. At the time, I still had two males, Columbus and Furby. Columbus, Michaela's sister, died two months later in early November. At that time, I thought it would be a good idea to mate Furby with Pikachu, and then keep one of their babies. Their successful litter of 13 is documented in my Hamster Journal.

Pikachu was an amazing mother. I can't even imagine feeding and keeping track of 13 children at once. She took motherhood very seriously and the success of her litter was her greatest accomplishment.

Pikachu was a very good sport about being photographed, as you can see from the photos above, especially the last one, Pikachu's Comic Strip.

Pikachu lived for 1 year and 9 months and left us on April 25, 2001, only a few weeks after her beloved, Furby.
