About Us
Ralph, the Pet of the Day
Name: Ralph
Age: One and a half years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Syrian Hamster
Home: Glendale, Arizona, USA
   Ralph is very special to us mainly because a few months after we got him, we were afraid we were going to lose him. We'd just lost a hamster to cancer before we got Ralph. A few months after we got him, he developed a lump. I took him to the vet, fearing the worst. However, his lump was less swollen after antibiotics, so we had it removed. It turned out to be an abscess. Ralph was very good through the whole ordeal and didn't bite anyone. Ralph always cleans himself until his coat shines. He loves to eat and occasionally we even catch him running. We love Ralph and are so happy he's been part of our lives.
