Amber, the Pet of the Day
Name: Amber
Age: One year, four months old
Gender: Female
Kind: Syrian Hamster
Home: Upplands Vasby, Sweden
   This is my International Premier Silverpet Sweethearts Shalimar, called Amber. She was born at my home, so I've had her since she was a baby. I have three hamsters, but I love Amber the most. She has her own personality, even though she is a hamster. Every time I walk by her cage, she runs out of her house and starts to make noises so I will notice her and pick her up.

    She is a real food-lover! She eats all food that comes in her way, but her favorite is hazelnuts. Hamsters have large cheek pouches where they can put  food and transport it to the nest. Amber once "hamstered" 30 hazelnuts! Not bad... Amber is a great exhibithamster and she has taken a lot of fine prizes. She has a very good  red/brown colour, and very black tickings. She is  mother to six babies, and she has a lot of grandchildren. Amber is the sweetest pet I've ever had!
