Bill Clinton has been keeping me up at night. He must sleep during the day while I'm at work. Every evening about 6 pm, he starts running and he doesn't stop until the sun comes up. I moved him to the laundry room, but still I could hear his wheel squeaking. I bought him a metal one; it was more expensive. I thought maybe his old wheel was cheap. I thought the new one wouldn't squeak so much. It was worse. I started to think of ways to get rid of Bill Clinton. I thought about leaving his cage open, or releasing him in the shed. I imagined that he might enjoy living with the shed mice. I assume that hamsters and mice are related.
Last night I found the solution: cam lube. I put a few drops on both sides of the wheel and that thing ran smooth all night, not a squeak. Bill Clinton can stay. My son will be pleased. He loves Bill. He named him during an intense president phase. He wanted to name his hamster after a living president, so our only choices were Bill, Jimmy, George, and Obama. He choose the lessor moron, I believe.
If you have any stories of cam lube doing anything beside lubing cams, post it up. Also if you have any info about cam lube being harmful to rodents, please post that as well.
