is one very special hamster. He used to be a very chubby little
hamster pup who loved to eat but now he likes to climb and run more.
When he gets to be held he talks to me with very quiet, gentle squeaks.

I got him and his brother when they were just six weeks old, since the
moment I saw them I knew they would bring me joy. His brother stood up

over to be with him. When I knelt down close to them, they both looked

loves them. They have never bitten anyone but have given people gentle
licks. Padgett is especially affectionate so he will be my pet of the
day, every day.
