The Inscrutable Chinese...

Sophie and Sammy are my Chinese hamsters. Sammy, in fact, is my prize-winning Chinese hamster. They're both dominant spot, but this hasn't stopped them having some tremendously cute normal babies as well as dominant spots. They're very quiet and keep themselves to themselves, but they're both very friendly when they come out to play, and Sophie in particular is getting very adventurous. They're also unbelievably adorable when they wrap themselves and their prehensile tails around your finger!
