Cozy, the Pet of the Day
Name: Cozy
Age: Ten months old
Gender: Male
Kind: Syrian Fancy Hamster
Home: Orient, Ohio, USA
   I got my Cozy boy on Valentine's Day, a week or so after my beloved Teddy Bear hamster, Hamlin, died suddenly one evening. I was devastated because she had been such a close friend to me. So I decided to go right out and buy another little friend. I chose Cozy because he seemed friendly, healthy and had a beautiful color. When I got him home, I wanted to be friends with him and hold him so bad, but even after a few weeks, he was very timid and would jump right out of my hands, so I began to think that he would never be as sweet and cuddly as my old ham. But, once I'd had Cozy for a month, and kept on spending time with him, he became the hamster of my dreams.

    I love him so dearly. He now enjoys being cuddled and running in his little play pen. He also eats sunflower seeds from my hand. Cozy has made my life so wonderful, and I've learned not to worry if a hamster doesn't warm up to me as quickly as my Hamlin did because with loving persistence, Cozy became my best friend!
