    Cute.... as long as no one throws a ball! If you had a bunch of rats and dogs you could do a re-make...."Ben-Fur." Sorry, couldn't resist.

    Do you remember the "Mouse and the Motorcycle" books? We used to put our hamster in a cardboard cup taped to a remote control car and drive him around. Your idea is probably a little safer :)
