Zookie, the Pet of the Day
Name: Zookie
Age: Six months old
Gender: Male
Kind: Teddy Bear Hamster
Home: Toney, Alabama, USA
   My pet is special because... We almost didn't get him. We were driving around town trying to find a teddy bear hamster and we had no luck. Finally, at our last stop, we found him. When we got home I was trying to think of a name, my mom, my friend Paige and I were thinking and thinking but we couldn't think of one. Then my sister came in and said what about Zookie? So from that day on he has been a Zookie. He is very active, nice and brave. A couple of times he has gotten of his cage and walked right past the cat and is still living. He has two really cool houses - one of them is a desert home because hamsters came from the desert, the second one has all his tubes in it. He has two circle tubes. We got him a out house one day and he doesn't really use it he just stores his food in it. I know my whole family really loves him.
