Hamster is the new black - controversial critters

The hamster dress is by far our most controversial piece. People seem to have no problem with birds or bugs in enclosed spaces, but put a furry rodent in a habitrail and prepare for some upset humans.

As described to a variety of displeased individuals:

1. We only leave the hamsters in there for half an hour max (they are Union).
2. Habitrails are specifically designed for hamsters - yes, of course they can breathe.
3. It’s a fabulous way to wear fur.

You may notice a running theme in some of my work - I find it really interesting to create ‘housings within housings’ or have people wear functioning enclosures for creatures. More on that coming soon…
