Well, I echo the "unique" comment!
My first thought was, "If you love someone, you gotta let 'em go!" You know, that old line....I'm probably wrong too though - Balladeer has some intellectual explanation, I'm sure!
*** Set them free - all the rodents! hehe I'm tired.

Well, I'm gonna try to explain this...and probably botch it very badly. The hamster runs, and keeps running, day after day, week after week, etc with no chance of escaping its existence but just continues running, against all hopes but still with hopes (if hamsters hope)that someday the path will straighten out and his journey will come to an end.
The man has gone through countless love affairs, none of which have worked out He's questioning why he should continue, why keep trying, why keep running in circles...like a hamster, for example. The hamster shows him that human nature is like that and, no matter how impossible it may seem, there may be someone out there to make the wish realized and we must continue.
He proves this theory by releasing the hamster and then, knowing that it can happen (because he had just made it so for the hamster), he goes on with his own life, assured in the fact that, if he keeps trying there can be someone for him, too, who will come along and set him free.
I'm sure I explained it badly but it's my explanation.

PFF...you crack me up SO much!!!!!!!!

Did I ever tell you the story about the flying squirrel we found running around the house? Well, flying squirrels aren't indigenous to this area, so we gave him a nice comfy cage with a snuggly warm nest in it.

The poor little guy, Glyde, seemed lonely though. Two days later, his flying squirrel lady friend was cavorting about the house as well... Now they're living in bliss - in the cage together - in the dining room!!! - No offspring yet...
