Dublina, the Pet of the Day
Name: Dublina
Age: Two years old
Gender: Female
Kind: Caucasian Hamster
Home: Rome, Italy
   Dublina is the cutest hamster I have ever had. She's lazy, doesn't use her wheel, she sleeps about 16 hours a day in the wooden house I built for her with my own hands, in a bed of cotton. Even if she is sleeping, if I start cooking some spaghetti with tuna sauce, she immediately comes out from her wooden house, and starts to bite the cage, and won't stop till I give her a piece of spaghetti. She will eat the whole piece, sucking it little, so is possible to see outside the cage how the spaghetti slowly gets up to the mouth of Dublina till it completely disappears. After that she cleans her face, and starts to bite the cage again. if I take her another piece of spaghetti she refuses it... she wants a piece of tuna now!! If I take a piece of tuna to her and she will take it with her little hands and start to eat and taste it very slowly. When she finished, she starts to bite the cage again. More spaghetti? No... More tuna? No... Okay. I take her out from the cage and bring her close to my nose, she starts to lick my nose for a while (without biting). She just wanted to say "Thanks!" Then I take her back to her house and she sleeps happily for hours.
