Ayeka, the Pet of the Day
Name: Ayeka
Age: Six months old
Gender: Female
Kind: Fancy Hamster
Home: Lincoln Park, Michigan, USA
   Ayeka makes me smile all the time, and she makes me laugh when she runs around the room in her hamster ball! Ayeka is my first pet, I'm only 8 years old and my Mom and Dad helped me send this. She was not so nice when we first brought her home, but Mom said that was because it was a "new" place to her. She's really loveable now and she loves to be held and petted. She doesn't like to be woken up, but other than that, she's super sweet.

    Ayeka spins a lot on her wheel, so much so that I have to put a different wheel in at night time because otherwise she keeps me awake all night running on it. Sometimes she runs so much on her wheel, she will even fall asleep on it. She's learning how to sit up and watch us, but her bottom and back are still not really strong, but she sure tries hard. She is very affectionate towards all of us, she even wants to be friends with one of my dogs named Jack, but he doesn't like her too much. My other dog, Orion, really can't be bothered with her. She doesn't bother him at all!
