A Cute Indigestion

When I was younger, my cousin had a hamster that got pregnant (probably due to lack of responsible sex education in hamster high schools).  I remember him telling me about her having the babies.  I was very excited to see them.  However, no one told him that you have to separate the baby hamsters from mama hamster.  By the time I was able to go over to see them, she had proceeded to eat all of her little hamster children.  So instead of seeing unthinkably adorable hamster babies, I saw a less than adorable bloody stump of what was left of the last one.  I just couldn't fathom what would cause a parent to eat her own young.  Until now...

Look at those cheeks.  I just want to bite them.  Don't worry.  I'm not going to eat my child. No one is going to come over to see a Lil' Bit stump.  I do have slightly more cognitive capacity than that of your everyday house hamster.  I'm just saying that a part of me wants to eat her for being so cute.  It's nature.
