Snickerdoodle, the Pet of the Day
Name: Snickerdoodle
Age: Eleven months old
Gender: Female
Kind: Syrian Hamster
Home: Canada
   I got Snickerdoodle from a local pet store when she was about a two months old. In the spring and summer, she likes to explore outside on her little green hamster harness, much to the amusement of our neighbors. We don't mind - it's better to have her safe than not!

    Sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, and dried beans are some of her favorite foods. Dried tropical fruit, broccoli, and yogurt drops are her favorite treats. She's very calm and gentle, even when being handled by young children. She's never bitten anyone. Snickerdoodle has only escaped once, but was found half an hour later, making a nest in a garbage can. She's a special hamster, that's for sure.
