Pepper, the Pet of the Day
Name: Pepper
Age: Fifteen months old
Gender: Female
Kind: Syrian Hamster
Home: Manitoba, Canada
   Pepper is special to me because she is so much fun. If I tap on the bars of her cage, she comes running up to get a treat, and if she gets one, she licks my fingers. She loves to hang from the top of her cage, she thinks she's a monkey. Her favorite treats are grapes and cheerios, and she always tries to steal tissues from the box next to her cage. When she gets let out to play, she scurries around the floor, picking up anything and everything, and stuffing it in her pouches! She escaped once, and I found her asleep in an old glass pickle jar, which was on its side on the carpet. So it became her sleeping house in her cage. I love her so much, she is such an important and well loved member of our furry family. She is the best hamster in the world, and I don't know what I'd do without her.
