Pooky Shnibbler, the Pet of the Day
Name: Pooky Shnibbler
Age: Four months old
Gender: Male
Kind: Blueberry Dwarf Hamster
Home: Prosperity, Pennsylvania, USA
   My pet, Pooky Shnibbler, is a blueberry dwarf hamster. I purchased him about two months ago. I had never owned a hamster before and thought they would be fun to have. He has been a welcome addition to my pet family. He has more energy than any pet I have ever had. I purchased a squeaky wheel for him when I first got him and he would run every once in a while. I came to find out it was too small for him because he had grown in the short time I had had him. I have since bought him a bigger wheel and he loves it!! Of course the down side is that he runs on it from 7pm until 7am straight!! But, I guess it keeps him busy.

    I do also have two cats that enjoy watching him run. I have to keep him up high so the cats can not get to him. I try to pet him, but it's not really his thing, and I respect that. He is a bit of a nibbler on the fingers! But, I do enjoy having him around and watching him run like a nut on his new wheel! As do my cats!
