Cleaning is not a fun task, but it’s not so bad if someone else does it for you, right? One little fluff-ball of a hamster does not agree. When Mochitaro’s owner opened his cage to give it a little scrubbing, Mochitaro was in despair.

In contempt of his owner’s clean habits, Mochitaro went back to bed (his wheel) in a huff− “How could you do this to me?!” He may be angry, spiteful and a bit overdramatic (quite a range of emotions for a hamster), but from the outside, he just looks like a handful of cuteness… On the other hand, he almost looks a little, dare I say it, dead…


His owner, Twitter user @moriakidayo, picked up on this too. In a follow-up tweet, she stated:

“Ah! Could it be that Mochitaro became a yokai [ghost/ supernatural monster]?! His body is spongy, the sign of a yokai! Welcome back Mochitaro! (I’m not actually crazy, I’m okay!)”

Thankfully, Mochitaro is alive and well, just stubborn. If these pictures didn’t satisfy your cute hamster fix, we’ll send you out with a cute video of Mochitaro sleeping on a different occasion:
