An abandoned hairless hamster gets a tiny sweater to protect her from the cold

Silky, a hairless hamster was dropped off at the Oregon Humane Society.  Apparently her family decided to move and couldn’t take her with them.  However, it didn’t take long for the shelter’s staff to fall in love with her.  Silky is naturally hairless due to a genetic mutation, that means she can easily get cold, something staff member Selene Mejia realized when she saw Silky huddled in a corner of her cage.

Selene took it upon herself to crochet a tiny sweater for Silky to keep her nice and warm.  The sweater fit her perfectly.  She seems to be doing better now, and as soon as she overcomes an eye infection, Silky will be available for adoption. See her awesomely cute photos below.
