Padgett, the Pet of the Day
Name: Padgett
Age: Five months old
Gender: Male
Kind: Campbell's Russian dwarf hamster
Home: London, UK
   Padgett 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. You can only hear him if you listen carefully but he will tell me when he wants to be lifted up or put down and of course, when he wants a treat.

    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 at the side of the cage to say hello to me and then little Padgett went over to be with him. When I knelt down close to them, they both looked up almost in wonder.

    Padgett still loves to play with me every night to this day and is still very loving towards his brother. Everybody who's met them absolutely 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.
