    Well this is going to sound really strange :eek:

    We have taken on 2 chinese dwarf hamsters both female. I was just holding one and thought she had something stuck to her bottom end i went to pull it off and it was coming from inside her i couldnt see if it was her bottom or her lady bits ..it was a long white snot textured substance (sorry) I have looked in their cage and i cant see any poop anywhere..whenever i have had hamsters before they have done proper poops :confused:

    confused!

    it doesnt sound normal at all, i would take her to the vets, also be very careul if you are housing them together, female chinese are noturious for fighting and 90% of the time are better kept seperate

    I have checked them both several times and they are both clean. I have never owned a female hamster so was wondering if it could have been discharge or a period?

    I dont know how old they are.

    As for their housing i have been given conflicting advice, i wouldnt have put them together if i had them from babies but tbh seeing how they are together i think it would do them more harm than good separating them now they have been together so long.

    female hamsters do not have periods, its definitely not normal.

    just keep a very close eye on them, when chinese fall out they fall out big time and very fast, they can easily kill each other within minutes of the fall out happening
