Kind: Panda Bear Hamster

   Snickers is the greatest most affectionate hamster I have ever seen in my life and I loved and still love him to no end. I don't know where to start. He always would make you feel great whenever you where down or even where lonely. Once I was sick and when I took him out what do you know - he slept with me for more that half an hour. Sometimes when I was bored and was watching TV he would be my little buddy. And if I was talking to one of the members of my family and had him out, he would sit and wait patiently.

    He was very gentle but fun too. If you gave him food he would take it from your hand with full caution, not to hurt you and had never bitten anyone except for me once when he was sick and I touched his face. Bad choice, I know now. He would love to be around people. If you where near him he would bite on the cage not in anger but to get out. Once you actually took him out you could see how friendly he was. He liked to climb through obstacles we made for him and he would always receive a treat if he succeeded. He had brains too, if you kept him by your bed like I did, and he had seen that you where asleep or at least thought you where asleep, he wouldn't bite at the bars to make noise, he would always go to his wheel knowing he wouldn't be taken out.

    In the bottom photo you can see that he is eating a little apple. We always pick one ripe little, tiny apple for him when we went apple picking. All in all I love Snickers so much and will be my favorite pet for a long long long long long time. I love you Snickers.
