Molly, the Pet of the Day
Name: Molly
Age: Four weeks old
Gender: Female
Kind: Sapphire Winter
White dwarf hamster
Home: South-East England, UK
   This is Molly, the sweetest little thing I've ever seen. She is four weeks old and just 4cm long! I saw her and her brothers and sisters when she was just twelve days old and she was so cute. Molly lives with her sister Milly, but Molly is tamer and will sit in my hand and be stroked for ages, she is so soft and loves to be cuddled up.

    These are supposed to be nocturnal animals and Milly burrows under her bedding nearly all day, but Molly is up and about running on her wheel, sitting in her food bowl, curled up in her cube or just chasing round her cage! She loves her food and especially loves pumpkin seeds and grapes. Molly will never bite but will lick me when I lift her out of her cage for a cuddle! I hope they will be with me for a long while yet.
