25th hamster-versary
23rd May 2018

By Lloyd Lugsden

A woman who visited a pet shop came back with something completely different.

Helen Roberts, from Liverpool, was looking for a hamster to keep her company – but she also picked up her future husband at the shop.

Helen went to City Pets back in 1993 and spotted a rodent she wanted.

But a young man she did not know wanted the same hamster and he agreed to give up his attempt to buy it first only if Helen gave him her phone number. The hamster lived for only seven months, but Helen and Chris’s relationship is going strong 25 years on, the Liverpool Echo reported.
