Sammy, the Pet of the Day
Name: Sammy
Age: Two years old
Gender: Female
Kind: Hamster
Home: Brookline, Massachusetts, USA
   This is Sammy. I wish I could tell you what kind of hamster she is, but I don't know all that much about them. She's a beautiful golden brown with a white saddle. Sammy was given to us by our ten-year-old niece who made us promise to take one when her cherished hamster gave birth to ten little ones! She's been with us two years now. Sammy has a very nice cage with three different penthouses. She's a fastidious little gal, and uses one for her bedroom, one for her kitchen (stashing food) and one for her toilet. It makes cleaning her cage quite a breeze!

    Despite her opulent home, she always wants out of her lair. She is a master escape artist and has been AWOL more times than I like to think about. Her favorite hideout is behind the refrigerator, and we go through quite the bait and switch to lure her out each time. She has discovered the dog bowls and is quite content to feed on dog kibble and water when she's on the lam! (Even though I make sure she has her own food and water.) She's a real cutie pie! Having never owned a hamster before, we did not know what to expect, or how much personality and mischief could be packed into such a small body. She likes running on her wheel, but prefers running free even more. She definitely has her own personality, and is quite certain that there's a place for everything, and everything should be in it's place, and she keeps her fur immaculately clean. Who knew we'd end up loving her so much!
