Here I am, in my capacity of mug inspector. Every mug that Big Hands gets, needs to be inspected and approved by me.
It's a very important job. First you have to climb inside to check for roominess. The perfect mug needs lots of beverage space, or hamster space, depending on your perspective. It was very capacious.
Then there is the sniff test, and the lick test. The sniff test is for the type of clay and glaze. The lick test is for seeing how smooth the glaze is. It was very smooth.
Then there is the climbing out test. The best mugs are not too high for hamsters to climb out easily.
This mug passed my inspection with flying colours (mostly mint green but quite a bit of red and orange, too).
My eyes and artisticness aren't my best side, so Big Hands was called upon to give her verdict on the shape and colouring. She liked it very much. She says it reminds her of a green lake on a misty day, with red rocks in the background.
It's a good mug all round.
If you have a mug that needs inspecting, I'm your man. I take yoghurt drops and monkey nuts as payment.
