If you think Matthew looks tiny then you'll certainly think Juno is tiny... she's more than half the size of him at 25g.

I was hoping to breed from her this summer but at the moment she's just too small for me to want to risk it.

Oh my, is Juno fully grown (I am thinking not)? She must be robo sized!

And, well, a 50g hamster does seem tiny to me seeing as all of mine have been syrians and around double that when I first got them as babies! Sorry Matthew... I still recognise your amazing ham-someness (sorry, couldn’t resist the pun) and masculinity.

I'm pretty sure that she's not fully grown but Lord James didn't really hit his adult weight until he was around 8 months old so there's still time for Juno to grow although possibly not enough time to breed her. Victoria was and still is a small Chinese at 32g and somehow she managed to produce Matthew but Juno is still noticeably smaller than Victoria.

I think Matthew gets his size from his grandfather (Victoria's father) who actually won the Best In Show at Hereford this year...I thought that it was rather nice that Grandfather and Grandson won the BIS and RBIS of the Dwarf Section.

My sister's Syrian is 209g which seems huge when you're used to dealing with Chineseys. I've had Chinese pretty exclusively for over five and a half years and think that because I'm so used to them and the way that they hold on to you with their entire bodies, I actually find Syrians more difficult to hold.

They're all such sweet fluffs Victoria is obviously a lady who like things in their place

I always thought Victoria was so small but I can hardly imagine how tiny Juno must be at 25g

They're all pretty particular about their cages and can get quite upset about their special things. It's for that reason that I don't tend to change much in their cages and each hamster will usually only have one toy that they're happy to get swapped out every so often.

It's a good thing that I'm not really worried about doing themed cages, I think they'd hate me for that.

They're all so tiny, cute and perfect!
So glad Victoria made sure everything was put back in its place. Such a sweetheart.

The other day Matthew gave me a bit of a fright, I was getting him out for playtime and I found a bit of blood on his bedding. I could at least reassure myself that because he's male, it wasn't going to be a pyo but I still wanted to find out what had happened to my precious boy. It turned out that he had a small cut behind his ear. I've seen plenty of skin splits in my time to know what one looks like and this was definitely more of a scratch than a skin split and on inspecting his cage, I found that it was caused by his bendy bridge. Needless to say I've taken it out and have sanded it down to make it safe again but he's a cheeky boy and chews things so it's something I'm going to have to keep an eye on if I put it and his level back in his cage.

Although I'm going to the show on Saturday, the hamsters are staying at home (I'll explain why later) so it should heal by his next show on 30th September.

Oh that would have been worrying, I'm glad you managed to figure out what had happened though. Hoping it heals up soon so he can get back to winning more rosettes
