Mushroom, the Pet of the Day
Name: Mushroom
Age: Three months old
Gender: Female
Kind: Syrian Hamster
Home: Durban, South Africa
   Mushroom is the sweetest, gentlest little hamster girl I have ever had! She was rescued from a pet store about a month ago and after a trip to the vet is now doing wonderfully! As you can see, she is all bright eyed and bushy tailed now and so full of love and sweetness that it is hard to believe! She loves to climb anything that she can and entertains us for hours with her antics!

    Mushroom is not very independent :) If I take her out of her cage she will sit in my hand and close her eyes while I stroke her, very sweet and gentle - very much a 'lady' hamster - she is always clean and keeps her fur tidy and not knotty.
