Mr. Pickle, the Pet of the Day
Name: Mr. Pickle
Age: Five months old
Gender: Male
Kind: Siberian Dwarf Hamster
Home: Scotland, UK
   This is Mr. Pickle, a very special little fellow in my life. He is a Siberian hamster/Russian winter white dwarf hamster. My brother, our mum and myself all fell in love with him as soon as we saw him. We bought him on my birthday, the 29th of October. Two weeks prior to purchasing him we sadly lost our well loved dwarf hamster, Flower, and as we all took the death hard we decided we would just go and have a look, not wanting to rush into buying another hamster. But, as soon as we saw him, our hearts melted. Some people believe that hamsters can't love you back, the way a dog or cat does, nonsense, I believe my hamsters love me, and Mr. Pickle is no exception. When I call his name he will stand on his little back legs, come up to the edge of his cage and look for me. He is adorable!

    As for his name, well we decided if we got another hamster it would be something flower related, after the death of our previous hamster, Flower, like Petal or Daisy, but Mr. Pickle is obviously a male. Collectively we decided Pickle was a pretty cute name for an equally cute hamster, but as the weeks went on the name turned in to Mr. Pickle!

    Mr. Pickle has also never once bitten, or even tried to bite us, just like our previous hamster, we like to say that the spirit of Flower lives on in Mr. Pickle, making him an extra special hamster. He is so friendly and will happily climb onto my hand if I place it in the cage, and he goes crazy for sunflower seeds, too.
