A post on Making Light tracks BBC “obsession” with hamsters, and this one story caught my attention:
Hamster back from the dead
Three-year-old Claudia had gone to the great cage in the sky. Or so it seemed.
For despite being buried in her makeshift coffin three feet below the ground, the plucky rodent was determined not to give up on life just yet.
She gnawed her way out of the box and burrowed up to the surface, before making her way back home.
