Cheekers, the Pet of the Day
Name: Cheekers
Age: One year old
Gender: Male
Kind: Syrian hamster
Home: Cincinnati, Ohio, USA
   Cheekers is a black and white Syrian hamster. He was born in Maryland, although he now lives in Cincinnati, Ohio. Cheekers is a very private hamster. Unlike other hamsters I have known and loved, he is not very active in his cage, but he is really, really affectionate. When you do take him out of his cage there is nothing he likes better than to be petted by humans. I'll have you know that humans love to pet him, too. His late brother PJ was Pet of the Day in October 2001. Unfortunately PJ died before Cheekers was born, and the two brothers never did get a chance to know each other. Cheekers is very special to us.
