I couldn't post this the other day as my internet at home is a bit iffy and I can't seem to share properly from Flickr using my phone but Sunday was Matthew's birthday. Here's the photo from his birthday photoshoot:

He had a lovely birthday dinner of Applaws Chicken Cat Food and Mealworms.

I'm glad that everyone is happy with the new arrangements in cage locations.

Matthew's birthday photo pic was great! Happy Belated Birthday, Matthew!!! His dinner sounded great, too. I'm sure he enjoyed it tremendously.

The show team aren't at their best at the moment as Vicky's fur has still not quite grown back fully after her skin split. She was entered in the show on Saturday but didn't place. Matthew came third in Normal Chinese but I don't think he's at his best either. Metallica Hamstery only has two shows to go now until February 2018 so I'm hoping that both Matthew and Victoria will remain at least in a presentable condition until November. Victoria however may not re-join the show team next year as she's getting on a bit now. She's already 18 months old and if she retires at a similar age to James, I've only got about two months left with her showing.

Juno has also been taken off the show team because her rather small, mousy appearance aren't doing her any favours. It's not worth disturbing her tunneling and burying things if she's not got much of a chance.

Thankfully I picked up a new girly on Saturday to hopefully help out with the issues that my show team are facing. I'm planning to give her a try on the show team and she's also due to be paired with Lord James to produce the next generation of Metallica's Show Team. Depending how things turn out, she could also end up being paired to Matthew.

Here she is! Meet Vectis’s Cora Josephine at Metallica:

Despite being several months younger than Juno and over a year younger than Vicky and Jess, she's already bigger than them both!

I hope James and Cora get along great and poor James doesn't get his nose scratched or his tail bitten

Congrats on getting adorable Cora Josephine! She is such a beauty and love the name, too. I hope that she does well for your show team and the pairing with James goes wonderfully, too. I will be keeping my fingers crossed.

Cora made her debut on the showing team last week and would have come in joint fifth which is not too bad for a young hamster on her first show. She was a little bit frazzled by the end of the day but the show was busier than I expected it to be so I'm pleased with her.

I've made the decision to retire Victoria because the ruffling on her fur that the skin split has caused has not recovered as well as I'd hoped it would and Victoria's fur was usually something she scored well on and made up a few of the points she usually loses on size. Victoria was usually a reliable show hamster so to lose her from the team means that our results will probably take a bit of a hit but these things can't be helped and I believe that in time we'll get through it. In the meantime I've got two assessed judgings left to do and I won't be able to enter those shows so it won't matter if my show team are a little ropey.
