||Two years old|
||Black Bear Hamster|
||Austin, Texas, USA|
My name is Toby Bear, and I am the greatest hammy-ham in the
whole wide world. My People bought me from a big pet store that I
really didn't like. Can you imagine a great little hammy like me being
forced to share a room with my brothers and sisters!? The very nerve
of those people!
After I got settled in with my People, I had a wonderful life, or so I
thought. I had a big cage to run around in, lots of toys, and a cool
ball to run around in when I woke up every night.
But then everything changed when my People adopted a big, smelly 'ol
dog! When I met it, I was very scared; I didn't know what to do, so I
sat very quiet and still in my cage until it went away. My Mommy saw
that I was scared, and made the dog go away, and she held me in her lap
'til I felt better. And I haven't seen that nasty old dog since!
Now I have my own room and everything; I don't even have to stay in my
cage anymore. Can you believe it? My family leaves me alone during the
day ('cause I really hate it when the sun is up), and they come play
with me every night. They even hide my food and a bunch of treats all
through my room in different places, so I can go hunting every night.
It's so fun!
All in all, I've got a pretty good life; my People love me very, very
much, even though they can be annoying sometimes. I especially hate it
when they take remote controls away from me. The buttons on them are
just sooo much fun to bite off!
