Bandit, the Pet of the Day
Name: Bandit
Age: Deceased, Two years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Syrian Hamster
Home: Ontario, Canada
   I got Bandit after my first hamster, Skitty, passed away. Bandit was much shyer than Skitty was so I had to get used to a less bold hamster. Bandit did start to get more comfortable with me and eventually he came to like only a select few people in my house. He liked my parents and myself, but he hated my sister. I still don't know why.

    Bandit was pretty smart and he even escaped a few times from his cage. His eyes always made him look wise and like he knew more than a young hamster should. He was always polite and never chewed up any toys or supplies. Once while I was playing with him, I accidentally knocked something off of my dresser. I left him alone for a minute on my desk to pick it up and when I turned back he was gone. I searched all around my room for over an hour, then at some point I heard his water bottle clicking. I looked in his cage and found him getting a drink, turns out he had gone back into his cage and had been hanging around in there the whole time. I never felt so silly, but Bandit came right back out and let me hold him. He passed away at about the age of two. He just couldn't handle old age, but I am glad that he went peacefully though.
