My algorithm is strange, so it's no surprise that these cute tiny "hamster slippers" shaped like little sharks showed up on my feed. Of course, I had to go see if I could find out if anyone was buying them and if I could see them in action on an actual hamster. Turns out, yes, folks are definitely buying them, and yes, they are forcing their tiny pets to wear them. Here's a hamster wearing them, for example. Sadly, the poor creature doesn't seem too happy about it:
But on the other hand, here's a hedgehog who doesn't really seem to mind:
Verdict: I'll file these under 'things nobody (and no tiny creature) needs,' but I'm a little torn, because gosh darn that hedgehog is pretty cute.
