||Four months old|

is our little sweetheart around the house. No matter what time of
day, sleeping or not, she's always ready to play. Her official name is
Chai (named for the color of Oregon Chai tea latte) but she actually
responds better to "Paws." Chai has three speeds: Off, Laid-back, and
Warp II. Surprisingly, she is our lap-hamster. She loves to cuddle
up and fall asleep on us while we're watching TV; she also enjoys
surfing the internet! When she's not snuggling with us you can find her
in her ball or in the "playpen." Her "apartment" is upstairs and she
enjoys hiding out in her box, playing in her sandbox, or running on her
new wheel. Her favorite treats are Quaker Oats and frozen peas.
Chai Oddities: She hops about like a rabbit in the playpen. She sits
patiently while you trim her claws. And she has a real affinity for fleece
and flannel shirts.
