Timmy, the Pet of the Day
Name: Timmy
Age: Nine months old
Gender: Male
Kind: Syrian Hamster
Home: England, UK
   I think Timmy is special because he boosted my life. He is a little angel, my Timmy, and I will tell you why. I was having a tough time at school. All my friends hated me and my guinea pig died. She was my best friend. To make matters worse, I still had no friends but I was cheered up with a surprise hamster, Treacle. We bought her from a pet shop which let her go at two weeks old! She was the last one there and was tiny. She died two weeks later, it was horrid. I went into depression. I cried every night and felt that the only reason I was put on this planet was to be tortured, that is, until I got Timmy. He was like a wish come true. He cheered me up with his big black eyes and his floppy ears. He was the last one in a better pet shop called Rangebournes. He was ten weeks old when I got him. I saw him curled up in a little ball in the sawdust asleep when I went to get him. He got put in my hands and it was love at first sight.

    I liked the name, Timmy it suits him. Everything got better from there. I was happy again. I soon had friends and most of all Timmy. He's my little bundle of fun! He has made my life a joy and that is why I would like him to be honored!
