Nibbles, the Pet of the Day
Name: Nibbles
Age: Deceased,
One and a half years old
Gender: Female
Kind: Winter White Hamster
Home: UK
   Nibbles was the best hamster I've ever had. She died on 21/11/04 and it was so heartbreaking. She was friendly from the day I got her. When I first held her she licked me and gave me a little nip, hence the name. After a few days she stopped nibbling my fingers but she kept her cute name. One of the best things about her was she was never afraid of humans, she loved attention and never bit anyone properly. Her favorite food was vegetables (carrots especially), biscuit and fruit. She never grew very big everyone thought she was a baby, but I didn't mind, as she was my little baby.

    I was thinking of breeding her, I did have a male hamster at that time (called Golem), but I didn't want to in the end because I was too scared they would fight. Golem died before Nibbles, even though he was younger, Nibbles and I were very upset. Nibbles went on living for the next few months very happily. She even learned to climb the stairs and do monkey bars on the lid of her cage, upside-down! All my brother's and my friends loved her. Who wouldn't love an adorable little thing like her?

    I cried all day the day she died. She was that special to me. Nobody knows why she died, I hope it was peacefully I would have hated it if it was painful. I'm sure she will be jumping for joy when everyone knows her name, she liked to show off, she will be my pet of the day for the rest of my life.
