Heartbreaking Comic About The Sad Life Of A Neglected Hamster By Comic Artist Jenny-Jinya

Published 2 weeks ago

Jenny-Jinya is a comic artist whose name you should know pretty well by now. She regularly creates heartbreaking comics that draw attention to animal abuse problems, and her latest one about a neglected hamster is no different.

In her new comic, the artist shows how peer pressure and the lack of knowledge can lead to hamsters being mistreated. In an interview with Bored Panda, the artist said that the urge to create the comic came after seeing a photo of someone’s hamster on Facebook in a cage that was way too small. “It was sad how resistant the person was to advice, and the counter-argument was really just ‘the staff at the pet store said the size was sufficient!'” said Jenny.

Jenny explained that people still see these adorable pets as ‘just a hamster’, as you can often buy one for less that $10. ” Anyone can buy such a small life for little money, often still under false advice because the staff in many pet stores isn’t properly trained,” said the artist. “It’s a general wrong attitude towards animals, not just rodents.”

Jenny says that it’s very important to do your research before getting any kind of pet. “It’s actually not a lot of work to sit down and learn about the creature you want to bring into your home. It’s not too much work and effort to improve their lives either,” explained the artist. She says that a few fresh vegetables, a balanced diet and letting the hamster explore the world outside the cage every now and then can go a long way. “Keep their cages clean and learn about the causes and symptoms of common hamster diseases. Just take responsibility for the little life that depends on you,” added the artist.

One day, this guy just kind of figured - "I spend most of my time on the internet anyway, why not turn it into a profession?" - and he did! Now he not only gets to browse the latest cat videos and fresh memes every day but also shares them with people all over the world, making sure they stay up to date with everything that's trending on the web. Some things that always pique his interest are old technologies, literature and all sorts of odd vintage goodness. So if you find something that's too bizarre not to share, make sure to hit him up!

Got wisdom to pour?
