Start Creatively

I always name my pets after something special that reflects their characteristics (i.e. a white coated American Eskimo named Icy). I'd never let my pets have a boring name! Make your pet name more special using your creativity.

My hammy is named Spider-ham because he used to love climbing all the way to the top of his 3 feet tall cage. (...And then he'd have no idea how to get back down. ;D) He'd look like Spider-man when climbing up the side of the cage that we named him Spider-ham.
