Smurf, the magnetic hamster

April 12, 2012

A cute furry animal and a happy ending: what more could I want for a story line?

Kate Meech, of Bugbrooke, near Northampton, returned home from a day out to find the beloved family pet, named Smurf, suspended in mid air.
After initial confusion, Mrs Meech spotted the outline of a circular object protruding from the pet’s cheek.
She realised the pet had eaten a magnet and become attached to the metal bars of its cage.

The hamster had stashed the magnet inside its cheek and after a few days managed to push it out. Mrs Meech said: “We took it to the vet’s just for a bit of an explanation. The vet said she had never seen anything like it. Smurf seems to be OK now.”

“There was just a tiny mark on her cheek where the magnet had come out. She’s now back to her normal loopy self.”
