||Six months old|
||Cincinnati, Ohio, USA|
is a six month old Syrian hamster, is a little love. I have
had many hamsters over the years, starting actually back in 1959, but
Scratchie is unique for two reasons. She is a very friendly hamster.
Whenever I open her cage door she comes right out looking to be
cuddled. Most hamsters require your reaching in and grabbing, but she
comes right out. The other reason is that she is about the most vocal
hamster I have ever known. She "chirps" a lot, especially
when I rub her tummy. Sometimes when I do that she closes her eyes,
seemingly out of contentment.
