“When I was a kid, one of our hamsters suddenly gave birth; we didn’t even know she was pregnant. We phoned the pet shop and they said, ‘Take the babies away — hamsters get very frightened after they’ve given birth and you don’t want her to eat the babies.’ We didn’t listen and that’s exactly what happened.
