We got Cricket when I was very young, but I still remember her. She was always very calm and passive and never hurt another animal. My hamster, Dora, would roll around in her ball and Cricket would just stroll around with her. She had a couple health problems, got sick every so often, but wasn't really common. She was super easy to groom, having short hair. She was trained by her previous owner, so I can't say much on that. When people came around, strangers or not, she would make sure there presence was known to the household, but didn't act beyond that. We gave her away in 2007 because we were moving to an anti-pet apartment. She was never a problem.
