Rufus MacDuff, the Pet of the Day
Name: Rufus MacDuff
Age: One month old
Gender: Male
Kind: Syrian Hamster
Home: Lusby, Maryland, USA
   Rufus MacDuff is one of five hamsters born in our home to Diddley Squat and his wife Lolly on the 9th of March, 2006. He is one month old in this picture, and you can see how pretty his coloring is.

    Macduff, or "The Duff," as he is sometimes called, is an exceptionally bright and attentive hamster. He is slightly smaller than most of his litter, but still big for his age. He's a gentle, tame little fellow who likes being handled. He gets along well (for now) with siblings Rum, Hemiette, Yarash, and Casey Dingo, but also looks forward to being a "real adult" in his very own cage some day.

    Macduff's current favorite activity is eating, but he also enjoys a playful roll on the ground with siblings and occasionally running in the family's shared exercise wheel.
