I'm from Vermont! I just don't post here too much but I do lurk from time to time.
It's nice to see another Vermonter here.
I used to live in Burlington, I went to UVM too.
I even got my cat Samantha as a tiny kitten when I was living in Burlington.
Now she's 19 years old and we have moved a bit south of Burlington in the next county.
Have you posted photos of your pets?
I would love to see your dwarf hamsters because I have one too!
