I don’t know about you, but this makes me sick.

UPDATE: Well, your impassioned, tireless activism (clicking on something) has paid off! A Rose Creates, the Etsy seller behind the hamster costume controversy, has seen the light, and has issued this formal apology to all Dwarf hamsters and their admirers:
“I would like to take this opportunity to apologize for my blatant disregard of non-Syrian hamsters. It was not my intention to offend or disparage these hamsters in any way, and I would like to state for the record that whether your hamster is dwarf or Syrian; Chinese Striped or Angora, I am willing to fill your costume needs.
And, in an effort to improve self esteem and empower hamsters of all kinds, I have today created my own organization: Body Image for Totally Cute Hamsters of Every Size (B.I.T.C.H.E.S.).
B.I.T.C.H.E.S. AND H.O.E.S. UNITE!”
