Charlie, the Pet of the Day
Name: Charlie
Age: Eight months old
Gender: Male
Kind: Syrian Hamster
Home: USA
   My hamster's name is Charlie. His color is black-eyed cream. He's probably around eight months old, maybe a little older. Now, for what makes him special, there's a bunch of stuff. First of all, he's a master escape artist. He's escaped about 25 times from his cage (but now we changed the cage and so far he hasn't got out once.) It makes him special because he's always finding ways out and mostly succeeds.

    Also what's special about him is that he's kind of a special needs hamster. He has had a few problems; one of them was a skin problem. He had mites, or mange but he was taken to the vet and treated successfully. Also his foot had a cut, which then formed kind of a lump. So it might have hurt when he was exercised in his wheel, but I don't think so because it has healed. Even then, he fought that battle to survive and I admire him because he tries the hardest he can to please, and doesn't really fuss about things. Another special thing about him is that he's an amazing climber and I have this pillow that's about four feet long. I hold it up in the air and he starts climbing all the way to the top! And of course I make sure there's a pillow at the bottom in case he falls. But that's why he's really special to me.

    Even though he had some problems in the past and will have more in the future, he still fights to live on every day and it would be nice to show that. In my mind he's Pet of the Day every day. He's very special to me.
