Whisk, the Pet of the Day
Name: Whisk
Age: Four months old
Gender: Male
Kind: Syrian Hamster
Home: Wiltshire, England
   A few months ago I started thinking about getting a hamster. A few days later, I went to look in a shop to see what sort I would like. I looked at the males as they are meant to be tamer. I started looking more closely at a sandy colored hamster, when all of a sudden Whisk popped out of the little house that they had! He was so cute with his massive ears and alert eyes! Later I got him out and picked him up! His coat was like a golden ginger color but then he ruffled it up and his top coat was a golden color but underneath it was black! I couldn't resist him, so I told them I definitely wanted him. They asked me how long would I like him reserved for, but after a quick pleading look at my Mum and Dad, I said "I would like him now!" So they gave him a quick check and then he was mine!

    Now at four months old he still keeps me awake at night running round his wheel and practising mountaineering up the side of his three floor cage!! He poses for the camera like a little model! His favorite food is sunflower seeds and grapes, not forgetting his hamster chocolate drops! He seems to clean himself a lot more than other hamsters ... but then he is not any other hamster, he is Whisk!

    That's what makes him special, he is different than other hamsters, (no I don't mean he is an alien!) he is my little Whisk!
