Cheeky little Charlotte just loves to have fun and is an amusing little girl to watch playing in her cage. She’s confident and loves people but due to her dislike of any of her potential husbands it was decided to retire her from breeding. Charlotte has occasionally represented Metallica Hamstery on the Show Team but can be a little too exciteable for some of the busier shows.
Charlotte sees the joy in most things and loves to supervise the goings on from her fabric shelf.
