Drusilla, the Pet of the Day
Name: Drusilla
Age: Eight months old
Gender: Female
Kind: Hamster
Home: Devon, UK
   Drusilla is a black hamster and I got her on the 26th of June, 2001. She was sitting in her cage with just her white nose sticking up, I knew as soon as I saw her that I wanted her. The night before, I had gone in the pet shop with my sister to get a hamster for her. She was choosing between a black bear hamster and a silver grey hamster. She chose the silver grey (Libby) so when I got home I was talking to my parents and begged them to let me have the black bear hamster. So the next day they said yes and I went down to the pet store with my mum and looked for her. At first I couldn't see her, then I saw her under all the other little hamsters.

    At the moment she knows her name and she can kind of stand, but I'm working on it. She is a very independent hamster. At home I have also got another hamster which is her sister (we got her from the same litter). She has locks on her cage because she is such a good escape artist. Drusilla has white feet and a white stripe down her belly! I've had her for about 6-7 months now, and she is one of the cutest hamsters i've ever had. She is also a longhaired black and she is starting to get a bit of white on her now.
