No, she hasn't eaten them, but she has HAD a new litter. She took to her nest about four days ago, and I glimpsed some pink in there yesterday. We are all holding our breath and walking on eggshells. George jokes around in the kitchen--"Somebody sneezes in this house and the hamster's like..." [he mimics Coco devouring her babies]. I say, "Stop it--she's just being, what do the call it in the hamster forums?--"merciful."
Hopefully this time Coco had all the pre-planning required to refrain from eating her young.
I told ya'll what Jenna said after viewing the carnage first hand, right?
"Wshew. At least I'm not a hamster baby."
