Well i was looking on the local facebook for sale page and someone has put an add up about 2 chinese hamsters needing a new home as they dont have time for them anymore. I am waiting to see the pics and see if i can fit the cage in on the book case. Dont think hubby is happy about it though :p

Well i hope they are ok and get on still in the same cage. I have read its not a good idea to have chinese hamsters living together. She still hasnt sent me any pics so will have to wait and see. Hubby still not impressed as i will take it up to 8 hammys lol

Our hammy used to live on the bookcase :)

I heard Chinese hammys can be aggressive to each other too, I thought it was only the teeny Roborovski (sp?!) ones that can be together.

Thats what i thought, i have a spare cage just in case they need to be split, i have seen a few people having 2 live together but then i have known some people that have had to split them after a year. I wonder if thats why she is getting rid of them as they are starting to fight.

Chinese hams are said to be the most placid of the dwarf breeds & they can be housed together but wether they stay together is down to their personalities.
I've had a chinese hamster, they are very shy but love to climb & tunnel, they will also cling to your finger. :)

Sorry i have taken so long to respond.

I picked them up and they are so cute :) The girl had taken care of them and was honest she didnt have time for them. We have called them Sam and Max and they have settled in really well. Here are some pics :)
