Smokey, the Pet of the Day
Name: Smokey
Age: Four months old
Gender: Male
Kind: Short Haired Hamster
Home: France
   Smokey came home from the pet store just two months ago. He was a little frightened at first because we have a dog in the house, but after a few days he became used to the dog and now doesn't even flinch. He fit in our home nicely. He is still very young so he is very squirmy me and my friends will play with him and he doesn't get scared of a crowd. He is grey/brown and white he is still very small, but he is just so adorable. His favorite foods are yogurt drops and sunflower seeds mostly I don't know what he would do if he didn't have sunflower seeds. He is very fast when we got him we had to fight to get him out of the cage because no one could grab him he kept hiding and he was really fast. He is very sweet he doesn't try to bite anyone not even if they have food on them. If he does get scared his safe place is in the middle of his tube in his cage he likes it because he's enclosed in a small space. When I am holding him, he always tries to squeeze through the smallest spaces. He's gotten out once but he didn't get far. He was hiding behind my bed, and we had get him to come back by waving a yogurt drop then we got him and he made a dive and I caught him. He's like a flying squirrel, he jumps out of your hands and will glide kind of until he hits the ground, so we have to be careful about that. He is starting to get a lighter brown on his face and it makes him more cute. Overall, Smokey is a very cute gentle hamster and I am lucky to have him.
