They do everything together.
Like their homework.
They watch movies together.
And take breaks to eat snacks together.

Amberly bought the hamster at Petco and the little bed at Petsmart, which became Chip's vehicle to travel along with Amberly throughout her day.
Fans of the tweet were excited to see fellow small pets. One hedgie even had the same bed, and the same name!
We have that same bed for our hedgehog and his name is also Chip! He loves it so much. pic.twitter.com/lMxT08JOni

Chip loves all his fans and the new-found fame. But he also just loves lounging in his bed and spending time with his human.
i honestly have no idea he just really likes his bed?

Teddy bear hamsters are very cuddly and make good little pets. They are technically long-haired Syrian hamsters, which get their name from where they were discovered first by British zoologist George Robert Waterhouse. In 1930, while the zoologist was studying them in the lab, a few of these golden hamsters escaped. All wild hamsters in Israel today are thought to have descended from these escapees!
The teddy bear hamsters were brought back to England and bred as pets. The rest is history and now we have little, cuddly companions that ride around in beds, going viral on Twitter.
