Share on Pinterest

Home is where the sleeves are.

Hamsters: Pretty cute. Hamsters in sleeves: Way, way cuter.

Translation: “Sleeve hamsters are seriously so damn cute.”

Throughout this winter, Twitter users in Japan have been posting precious pictures of their sleeve-inhabiting hamsters.

I mean where else would they keep them, a cage?!

“Good morning! (^-^)/ It’s sleeve-hamster season again. This is where I live these days lol”

The trend is apparently called sodehamu, with sode meaning sleeve, and hamu referring to the beginning of the Japanese pronunciation for “hamster.”
