Default 3 year old hamster tunnelled out of grave!

I'm not sure if this story has been on here before, but it's amazing!

It's from 2000 so it's a very old story. Sounds incredible! Mind you, I'm an old cynic so every time I see that sort of story/hear of unbelievably old hamsters I'm afraid the first thing that pops to mind is that the parents bought a new one and didn't tell the kid!

That's exactly what I thought!
The article only had one picture too - maybe if we'd seen more than one photo we'd know for sure that it was the same hamster?!

You know though, my very first hamster, Harry, died unexpectedly but the cat went to dig him up a few days later and he wasn't there! My brother said it must have been that another cat or a fox had dug him up already but once I found out they can look ded if too cold I kind of hoped for years that he'd dug himself out! LOL
