Omicron, the Pet of the Day
Name: Omicron
Age: Three months old
Gender: Male
Kind: Long Hair Hamster
Home: Portland, Oregon, USA
   I just got my hamster a couple of months ago. I named him Omicron after the Greek "O" because he is about as round as an o, especially when he curls up. He is very soft, with his long fur. He is very sweet and has never bitten me. If I pet him steadily while holding him, he will occasionally fall asleep in my hand.

    Omicron likes to eat carrots, parsley, oatmeal, and treats. He also likes to gnaw on chew sticks and run on his wheel. During the day, he likes to curl up in a ball and sleep then come out for food when he hears me filling up his dish.

    Omicron is the sweetest hamster I could hope for and I know I will have him for a long time. He is my friend.
