Sheila, the Pet of the Day
Name: Sheila
Age: Four months old
Gender: Female
Kind: Golden Fancy Hamster
Home: Glendale, Wisconsin, USA
   This is my pet hamster, Sheila. Sheila is about four months old and I have had her for a month and a half now. She's a very beautiful golden fancy hamster, and she and I live in Glendale, WI, USA. I love Sheila very much. We have formed an incredible bond together. She eats carrots and apples out of my hand and I feel as though I'm her mommy. One very cute thing she does is she climbs on top of her chew block, stands on her hind legs, and then proceeds to leap off her block onto her shavings.

    She still hasn't quite gotten used to her ball yet. Every time she goes in it, she bumps into something, turns around and then soon enough, bumps into something else. My dog came into my room a few days ago and my hamster and dog just stared at each other for a while, then Sheila made a squeaking noise which ended up scaring my dog away! Sometimes Sheila sticks her head under her shavings and runs around like that, and when she comes up, her face is all covered in food and shavings and it's very adorable.
