Kisses, the Pet of the Day
Name: Kisses
Age: Seven months old
Gender: Male
Kind: Fancy Dwarf Hamster
Home: Bradford, New York, USA
   This is Kisses. Despite his name, he is a boy. His name went along with my other hamster, Hershey. So together they formed Hershey-Kisses. Sadly, Hershey passed away at the ripe old age of 2 1/2. She will forever be remembered. But no matter what his name is, Kisses is just my cute Lil' Boy.

    Shortly after I added Kisses to the household, I found out that he was a tunneler at heart. He loves to tunnel and dig. Because of this I went out and purchased a ten-gallon tank for him. I fill the tank Half - full with shavings, and he has a blast. I never know where to find him. He doesn't sleep into his house a lot. Who would when you could sleep in a house you built yourself at the end of a tunnel?

    As you see in the picture, the wheel he had was a small one. As he grew bigger and bigger, I noticed he also grew fatter and fatter. One night i sat in front of his cage and just watched him. He was too big for the wheel, he couldn't run, only jog. So I went out and bought him a big wheel. Within a couple weeks he slimmed right down. So now everything is going all right. He just my sweet lil' boy, and I love him.
