Many of us have made our pets part of the family. They share our beds and sit next to us on our couches. They eat when we eat. We might even be able to say that they are such a big part of our families that they are just like us.
Sometimes they are so much like us that we just can’t believe it – like when they showed off their athletic skills in this year’s Summer Games. Beverly Borrill’s hamsters (who have taken over her Instagram page) are one example of how much hamsters are like us. Minus their small size, big ears, tiny eyes, fur, four legs, whiskers, short life spans, ability to pack away food in their cheeks and inability to talk, these hamsters are exactly like us.
Don’t believe us? Take a look.
