About Us
PJ, the Pet of the Day
Name: PJ
Age: Three months old
Gender: Male
Kind: Hamster
Home: Cincinnati, Ohio, USA
   My hamster is PJ, so named because he is Paddington Junior. Paddington is the son of Yarash Junior who ran for vice president last November. Therefore, PJ comes from a great lineage. I just got PJ a week ago. My wife and I drove nine hours round trip to get him. We saw his picture and loved him that much. We live in Cincinnati, Ohio and we had to drive to Charleston, WV to meet his breeder, who lives in Maryland.

    PJ was born on July 16, one of a litter of eight. This was one of the pictures that made me drive that far to get him. He is really about the sweetest and gentlest hamster I have ever known. Sorry I don't have any pictures of his fiancee, our other hamster Scratchie. She was born in early May of 2000.

    PJ is a very affectionate hamster and just loves to be cuddled. Unlike other hamsters, e.g. Scratchie whom we also have, he is far more of a morning person. He really likes to do his major activity after dawn, whereas most hamsters are pretty much asleep by then. When Scratchie is up in evening he is still sleeping and when he is up in the morning she is already all sacked out.
