Natasha, the Pet of the Day
Name: Natasha
Age: Eighteen months old
Gender: Female
Kind: Siberian Dwarf Hamster
Home: Southwick, Massachusetts, USA
   This is Natasha. Natasha is a sweet and friendly girl. She enjoys crawling into long sleeves to nap and groom by my elbow. One of her favorite foods is popcorn and she will come out of her little house to pace at her bars whenever the scent of warm popcorn floats up the stairs to her cage. She got loose one night and instead of hiding on us, this less than two-ounce animal came down the stairs, and made her way into my parent's bedroom where she stayed in their closet until she heard their voices in the morning. Then she came out for a visit ... and a return to her cage! What a good girl! The photo shows her enjoying a freshly baked gingersnap.
