Fuzzy, the Pet of the Day
Name: Fuzzy
Age: Deceased, Two years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Syrian Hamster
Home: San Diego, California, USA
   Fuzzy was my very first pet. We bought him from the pet store on July 4, 2004 - they weren't sure how old he was when we bought him, but they said he was about six weeks old. He died on June 2, 2006. We knew he was getting old because he wasn't as active as he used to be and wasn't playing or grooming himself. It was a very sad day when he died because me, my mom, dad and little brother loved him. His favorite foods were baby spinach leaves, carrots and cucumbers. Sometimes he would eat apple wedges, but he didn't like those as much as the veggies. He also loved sunflower seeds. He would make me laugh because when we took him out of his cage to play he would get flat and low to the ground and then run really fast around the room. He also liked to climb the bars of his cage, like Spider-Man. His nickname was Spider-Fuzz. We miss him a lot. I am going to wait a while before I get another pet because losing Fuzzy was too hard. But he will always be my first pet.
