The internet is obsessed with this tale of a sick hamster, an emotional rollercoaster told through a series of texts that went ridiculously rival, like, ridiculous, with 269,000 likes from people invested in this random hamster's well-being. It's the hamster medical mystery you've been waiting for.
Kat, a 19-year-old musician and gamer from Northampton, England, told the tale.
Prepare for the twist.
What a relief. The hamster wasn't sick—just magnetized.
For some reason, this story really struck a chord with people, and going viral made Kat's mum proud.
In these difficult times, we all could use a happy ending.
Terrified this hamster was going to end badly and now I am crying with a weird combo of relief and joy and something else I can’t name.— Joel Derfner (@joelderfner) July 5, 2017
I'm very glad that story had a happy ending. It could so easily have turned into a fatal attraction.— amp8888 (@amp8888) July 5, 2017
