While many of us are home bored, Beverly Borrill, a 52-year-old woman, has found a new way to entertain herself during quarantine. She has been spending hours creating miniature scenes of what we are currently experiencing so that her hamsters can play.
Until now, her adorable hamsters have performed a wide variety of activities, including the hard work of medical staff, working from home, shopping from home, and social distancing.
Beverly from Devizes, Wiltshire, creates each mini set from her kitchen, then drops the hamsters so they can play. And of course, she photographs everything her hamsters do.
I thought about posing the hamsters in these coronavirus-related scenes for quite some time, when we first isolated ourselves. I didn't want to do anything in bad taste, so I decided it would be better if they did things like helping the NHS (The National Health Service of the United Kingdom), rather than hamsters pretending to have coronavirus.

I have really just been inspired by the things we've done in isolation: endless amounts of laundry, cleaning the kitchen, and lots of time with a little wine in the tub.
I've been enjoying having more free time to do the things I love the most, like creating these scenes for the hamsters.

Creating mini scenes for Beverly hamsters emerged when her 14-year-old daughter was making a mini hot air balloon for a school project, and she thought it would be a good idea for hamsters to appear in a photo.
Since then, creating mini stages has become a regular hobby. Best of all, she shares her work through her Instagram account.
