The Confessional

A post from Motherhood: A Descent into Madness reminded me of this Confession.

When I was maybe 10, my friend brought her hamster over to play with my hamster, Buster. They had a lot of fun. A LOT of fun. They had hamster sex, on my bedroom floor, right in front of us. Not sure what to do, we let them finish and put her hamster back in its box.

Well, three weeks later (bitches), I go in to feed Buster (who I thought was a boy) and found that "he" had had about 10 babies in the middle of the night. A few days later, we found one of the babies in the laundry hamper (I seriously have no idea how). Knowing we shouldn't touch them, we just picked up the shirt it was on and put it back with its family. Que the next morning when I woke up and found all of the babies dead--and partly EATEN! Shivers. Nightmares. Therapy. Charles Shaw.


The Confessional is now open. Have something you need to repent for? Feel free to send me your sin and I will help your purge your demons.

  2. When I was picking out my first pet, I avoided hamsters for this reason (I had a guinea pig). Why do they always eat their babies?! So weird.

  3. In 5th grade I was at my friend's house and we were playing with her hamster when it leaped out of my hands and did a graceful swan dive, straight on to the floor, breaking its back. It was so traumatizing and my friend hated me so much. Hamsters are bastards.

  4. When I was a freshman in high school, I came home to find my step father sit ting in a chair staring at my hamster's cage. He said "I've been watching him all day and he hasn't moved.". I looked at the hamster and he was on his back, puffed up like a blow fish, with all four of his little legs straight up in the air. Ex hamster. You'd think that would've tipped my step father off to the situation.

  5. Oh my gosh, I was hoping you'd tell the story! Although I don't know why, because that's so disgusting. Thank God for two buck chuck. It's such great therapy!
    Thanks for the mention, too! Very much! :-)

  6. I had hamsters when I was younger... It's pretty crazy how they seem to like eating their babies. We had one who chewed one of its daughter's legs off, so we named her One Leg Peg. She lived, though, and was probably one of the coolest hamsters we had. Though needless to say, at this point, we started getting rid of the bitches. lol.

I love hearing from you. It reinforces that writing this blog is not just a silly waste of my brain matter. If you leave a douche canoe comment, I will delete it. I am powerful like that.
