Many people are animal lovers, and most of them have dogs or cats as pets at home. Even rodents like hamsters are considered pets, too. Most pet lovers, especially children, keep hamsters in their homes because they are active, agile, and small. They may have a small physique but they are very active at night.
A bite-sized hamster with a ʙʀᴏᴋᴇɴ arm and an adequately tiny cast has taken the internet by storm.
A photo of the tiny animal surfaced online on Friday, attracting adoring comments from viewers who marveled at the little hamster’s cuteness.
The tiny rodent appears with its arm at a 90-degree angle with its body, held in place by what appears to be a miniature hamster cast.
The owner bought the hamster at a pet store for US $4.75 (RM 20.00). When it was brought home, it had a fight with the house cat after a few days,
Obviously, the hamster “lost” and suffered an injury. It was then brought by the owner to the veterinarian for a check-up. After a scan, the results showed that it had broken its left arm. After it was treated, the cost of the treatment reached $476.00 (RM 2,000)! Talk about “very” compassionate pet owners.
The amazing thing is, the hamster survived a fight and managed to only injure its arm despite fighting with a large cat that can easily end its life. Unbelievable!
