Babette, the Pet of the Day
Name: Babette
Age: Eleven months old
Gender: Female
Kind: Campbells Russian Dwarf Hamster
Home: Ohio, USA
   Babette is special because when she first came to us, she did not want to be handled. She was getting beat up constantly by her sister Sofia and didn't like people very much. We decided to separate them and saw an immediate change in her. As soon as she hears our voices she runs to the door to greet us. She loves to be held, especially on the front porch where she enjoys sticking her nose into the breeze.

    She is such a baby, we spoil her so much! She loves to eat cucumbers when it is hot, especially when we take the skin off. She was a little on the chunky side, but we added a tower to her cage and climbing up and down was great exercise for her. Every night she waits anxiously for her 8 o'clock treat. If we forget she has a bell hanging from her cage that she will ring until we bring her something. One night I was watching a baseball game and she curled up on the blanket with me and slept for three innings.

    She is the cutest and we love her!
