About Us
Mr. Peabody, the Pet of the Day
Name: Mr. Peabody
Age: Five months old
Gender: Male
Kind: Longhaired Teddy Hamster
Home: Stillwater, Oklahoma, USA
   Mr. Peabody is sweet and gentle and he loves to be in the middle of everything! Peabody was a tiny little thing when we got him, only four weeks old. When we brought him home he got really sick with wet tail and almost died. We gave him medicine, pepto, and baby food every day. He even had his own heating pad! He improved immediately, but he sure gave us a scare. Today he's a happy little guy and spends his days running around on the couch, in his ball, or on the wheel in his cage. He loves to eat but never takes more than he wants; he is the only hamster we've had that never stuffs his cheeks! Peabody likes to have his head scratched and to have his fur brushed. His favorite activity involves chewing on everything, and we have to constantly watch what is within his reach! He uses his feet like little hands by reaching and holding on to everything. His nickname should be Mr. Mischievous!
