Oreo, the Pet of the Day
Name: Oreo
Age: Unknown
Gender: Male
Kind: Black Bear Hamster
Home: Illinois, USA
   Oreo was a Christmas Present from my Mom and Dad. We were going to get a puppy but that did not work out. My Mom took me to Petsmart on a Sunday morning because I was feeling sad about not being able to get a puppy. She surprised me and let me pick out a hamster. The regular hamsters all had diarrhea so they would not let me buy one of those. I saw the Black Bear Hamsters and they were so cute. I picked out Oreo because he was the calmest one. He is so much fun and he loves banana chips. I play with him every day. He loves his wheel so much that he rubbed the fur off his nose running on it. He loves to run around the house in his exercise ball too. He is so much fun and I love him so much!

    We had to buy a bigger wheel for him so he would not rub his nose on the side anymore. The fur has grown back now. He starts running at 3 a.m. a lot and goes for hours. I usually sleep through it now. He runs and runs for hours. He is very sweet and special to me. He loves carrots and Pumpkin seeds. He loves to walk from my hands to my Dad's hands over and over. I got him a new Blue exercise ball to run in. He plays in it while I watch TV. He runs all over the room like a crazy hamster. He is very gentle and cute. He loves to take pieces of cotton into his bed to make it warm and cozy. He even takes parts of my t-shirt that my Mom cut up for him into his bed. They said that will help him get used to my scent and he will like me better. I wash my hands really good before picking him up so he does not think my hand it food and bites me. He did that when I first got him because I did not know to wash my hands first. He is my best friend! I Love him!
