Scratchie, the Pet of the Day
Name: Scratchie
Age: Six months old
Gender: Female
Kind: Syrian hamster
Home: Cincinnati, Ohio, USA
   Scratchie, 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.
