Hamster Caught Sneaking Late-Night Snack
by Scott Friedstein, FluffPo Correspondent
Rex had been following his strict low-carb diet perfectly. Unfortunately, temptation got the best of the hamster late Thursday night.
“I went to the kitchen to grab a glass of water around 2AM and there he was, mowing down on a Ritz cracker,” says roommate Fred Burch. “He was doing so well too. I guess he just couldn’t help himself.”
Health experts tell The Fluffington Post that diet slip-ups, while not uncommon, can be cause for concern.
“Maintaining a healthy hamster weight is dependent upon a proper diet,” says nutritionist Donna Fridland. “That could have easily turned into entire sleeve of crackers; you’d need more than a few runs on the hamster ball to work that off.”
