Peanut, the Pet of the Day
Name: Peanut
Age: One and a half years old
Gender: Female
Kind: Dwarf Hamster
Home: Minnesota, USA
   Peanut is the most special hamster I know. She is not only beautiful, she is a strong little girl, a sweetheart and a survivor.

    My friend had gotten Peanut, female dwarf, and she would always bite because she was territorial. I kept trying to tell my friend that she needs to get used to her human scent. She didn't listen and every time Peanut climbed on the cage bars she would blow on her or push her paws off and make her fall. When poor Peanut was sleeping, my friend would poke her until she woke up. She would also feed her a bunch of yogurt drops if she forgot to feed her her normal food. I had completely disapproved of this, since dwarves are prone to diabetes.

    Finally, a couple months later, my friend said I could have her. So mid-January I walked over to my friend's house, who lives half a block away, and picked up Peanut. I put a blanket over it to keep her warm because it gets cold in the winters here in Minnesota. Now, few months later, Peanut is still territorial but once you get her out of her cage she is such a sweetie! I let her get used to me, and I give her a happy, safe secure home. I'm so happy that I got to save a very special furry friend's life. I love Peanut!
