Cocoa the Cannibal

Did you know Chinese Dwarf Hamsters are cannibals?

Well, they are.

Today, we found our hamster, Frosty, lying headless and disemboweled on the floor of the hamster cage. Dead as a doornail.

It had been eaten by Cocoa, its fellow cage dweller.

It was yucky. Jeff took care of it for me. He's my hero.

We haven't told the boys yet, because today is Daddy's birthday, and we don't want to ruin the day.

But we think, from now on, it will be best for Cocoa to have his own digs.
