Franklin, the Pet of the Day
Name: Franklin
Age: Eighteen months old
Gender: Male
Kind: Teddy Bear Hamster
Home: Pacifica, California, USA
   This is my pet hamster Franklin. His cage is right by my bed. Franklin is a great companion, because he never minds being woken up when I need to talk. He may not understand everything I tell him, but he certainly recognizes his name, and that I love him. Sometimes I wake up and find Franklin watching me as I wake up. Franklin is special, because he is always happy with everything that he has.

    Franklin is an interior decorator - he loves setting up nests in parts of his cage. The picture is of a nest that he built in a kind of tower in his cage. He carried all the wood shavings that you see from his cage below by himself. Sometimes at night I wake up to hear him moving his nest from one place to another.

    He's very fast at transporting all his stuff and sometimes I wake up to see that he's changed everything around in his cage. It's always fun to see what he comes up with. Franklin is a fun pet, because he always enjoys life and is very industrious.
