Sixth in the series of popular I Love Pet!! otome CDs. In this setting, Kaji Yuki voices a hamster whose name is Maron マロン! Lol~ this seiyuu’s big eyes in real life does remind me of the cute, little rodents.
To recap, these are special pets that have the ability to take the form of humans. However, when they do, they still keep their animal ears and tail if they have any. Usually these pets transform according to their feelings and emotions. Some pets who have better intelligence/wisdom can control the timing when they transform but for some pets, these are random events that they cannot predict.
In Maron’s case, his intelligence is of medium level. He usually transforms into human form unconsciously but has a 50% success rate when he consciously want to turn into human form.
Maron was born in a pet shop and has lots of siblings. He is the youngest among them. He is honest and sweet. Sometimes he can also be calculative and sneaky. He is a little wilful and spoilt and good at getting affection.
In the demo track, Maron pretends to be sick. He uses his higher body temperature as a hamster to his advantage and tricks his owner into taking care of him and letting him sleep in her bed.
In the story, Maron fell in love with his owner at first sight.
The pet owner, is a girl (20~22 years old) The owner does not have experience with keeping pets. She loves Maron as if he was a cat ^^;; She is weak against being pressured. She is not the gentle type but will response accordingly when coaxed the right way.
Djungarian Hamster according to Wikipedia:
The Djungarian hamster (Phodopus sungorus), also known as the Siberian hamster or Russian winter white dwarf hamster, is a species of hamster in the genus Phodopus. It is ball-shaped and typically half the size of the Syrian hamster, and therefore called a dwarf hamster along with all Phodopus species. Features of the Djungarian hamster include a typically thick, dark grey dorsal stripe and furry feet. As winter approaches and the days shorten, the Djungarian hamster’s dark fur is just about entirely replaced with white fur. In captivity, this does not always happen. In the wild, they originate from Dzungaria, the wheat fields of Kazakhstan, the meadows of Mongolia, Siberia, and the birch stands of Manchuria.
Djungarian hamsters are common as pets in Europe and North America, and exhibit greater variance in their coats than those found in the wild. They reproduce often—more so than Syrian hamsters—and, as they have no fixed breeding season, can continue to produce large amounts of offspring all year round. Young pups will act aggressively to one another; whilst breeding females may show similar aggression to males.
