Tubby, the Pet of the Day
Name: Tubby
Age: Seven months old
Gender: Female
Kind: Teddy Bear Hamster
Home: New York City, New York, USA
   My pet Tubby is seven months old and she is a black teddy bear hamster. We're from New York City and there's so many reasons as to why I love my pet but I'll see what's the main special points.

    Tubby was given to me as a gift from a friend and even though I didn't know much about taking care of hamsters, Tubby taught me this very quickly. My first lesson was in trying to find her when she ran away for an entire week! So we consider her a very special secret service/spy type of hamster, because there's always a new trick up her sleeve. She's always excited to run in her ball and she loves having Berry Nibblers for treats or dinner.

    Another unique trait about my hamster is how excited she gets. There's never a quiet moment when she's out of her cage. We watch television together and she loves crawling in my sweaters. She's made me happier to have her every day. When I have bad days, she knows to stay quiet or to not get too hyper that day because I can't play with her, but when we're having good days, she can be the coolest pet ever! She doesn't bite and she is the sweetest pet I could have ever wanted. I learn more and more about her every day and I can't wait to see how much bigger she'll get.
