Little Tess and Amelia weren’t always sitting so pretty.

They were rescued during PETA’s investigation of U.S. Global Exotics (USGE), a massive exotic-animal dealer that denied the animals it warehoused veterinary care, adequate space, ventilation, heat, and even adequate food and water.

They found a home with a PETA member replete with love, toys, treats, and a thousand comfy places where a hamster can curl up and spend a relaxing afternoon.
