That's the most useful thing anyone's ever suggested to me you do with a hamster. I've got no sympathy with hamsters, they just sit in cages. We've had loads of them, they sit there and then they just die on you and upset everyone. At least this way they get made into a coat. I'm for it!
That's not the hamsters' fault, the fact that they sit in the cage, people put them in there. It's like saying "Rudolf Hess, all he does is sit around in prison all day!"
