Rocket, the Pet of the Day
Name: Rocket
Age: Eleven months old
Gender: Male
Kind: Black Bear hamster
Home: USA
   Rocket is a Black Bear hamster. We first saw him as a tiny two-week-old with his mom, brothers and sisters. My six year old daughter fell in love with the babies, so I put a hold on one of them. We had to wait about two weeks till they were old enough to leave mom and eat on their own. We picked out Rocket!

    Rocket was named after his spaceship home, and settled in very quickly. He turned out to be the perfect little guy. He's very calm and has never bitten anyone or ran away. At night time he loves to run in his wheel and eat his favorite foods, sunflower seeds, nuts and fresh fruit and veggies. When my daughter plays with him he is quite happy to sit in her hand or alongside Barbie as they take a ride in her toy car! My daughter is still in love with Rocket and so is the rest of the family.
