Snickers, the Pet of the Day
Name: Snickers
Age: Seven months old
Gender: Female
Kind: Campbell's Dwarf Hamster
Home: Rochester, Minnesota, USA
   Having lost one of our dwarf hamsters in December 2004, we were scouting the pet shops in our area for another little furry friend to love. Fortunately, on a cold winter's night in January, we came across little Snickers snuggled in the corner of a cage; she was only about a month old.

    Snickers, who has normal coloration, caught our attention right away with her silky coat, bright eyes, and the biggest ears we had ever seen; they even had little black tips to set them off!

    Since those first days, Snickers has grown into a calm, relaxed hamster who rarely comes out during the day but runs on her wheel all night. She loves sunflower seeds and is obsessed with burrowing under her sleeping box (which she tries repeatedly to tip over). If you hold and pet her just right, she'll even snuggle into your hand and start to purr like a cat.

    Snickers, you're truly one-of-a-kind and we love you so much!
