Skitty, the Pet of the Day
Name: Skitty
Age: Deceased, two years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Syrian Hamster
Home: Ontario, Canada
   I got Skitty one year as a Christmas present from my parents. I had wanted a hamster ever since my sister got a hamster. I was so happy to finally have my own pet. Skitty was a little nervous when I first got him so he got the name Skitty because he was so skittish. Once he got over his initial nervousness, though he became a great hamster! I learned a lot with Skitty, like not using pine shavings and that hamsters need a bigger home than pet store hamster cages allow.

    Skitty was very special to me because he would cuddle with me when I was sad and he would always do something silly to make me smile. My sister and I don't always get along but she helped me learn about hamsters and how to care for them, so through our hamsters we became closer friends. Even today our pets keep us closer. Skitty passed away a couple of years later, sadly. I was crushed when he died, but now I know that his age no longer hurts him and that he is in a better place.
