Today, I was taking care of a friend's hamster. Thinking the hamster wanted to make a bed, I put some cotton balls in his cage so he would be comfy. He promptly ate them and died. FML

That was a dumb thing to do, but FYL because you probably feel pretty guilty.

survival of the fittest. that's what you tell your friend.

that sucks... how could u think that a hampster used a bedding material.. WTF? duh you deserve to feel like cdap

Somehow, an image of a dumb blonde popped into my mind. You meant well but, still did smth stupid. FYL n FTHL.

thats why i get gerbils lol

Umm it would have done you some good to take 5 minutes and research on the Internet that hamsters should not be given cotton balls, ever, for many reasons! I was told to give my own hamster cotton balls by someone who never had one before and I was worried about it so I googled it...You should have been more careful with someone elses pet. YDI for not looking it up and assuming, buy your friend a new hamster.

YDI for thinking it could make a bed...

who cares? it's a stupid rat

It isn't stupid or even a rat. Hamsters are rounder and fluffier and sososo much more adorable than rats. Plus, SHORTER tails.

You goddamn retarded bitch, don't you know a fucking thing about hamsters? That's fucking why they use wood shavings as materials. F the Hamster's life and I hope that friend beats your ass to the ground.

wow I actually learned something on FML.com

look it's easy to make a mistake! everyone calm down!

blondes aren't dumb #11 ur jealous of our hair

well shes named Kelli from california, where katy perry spells girls wrong so yeah shes a dumb blonde

Sorry smartblonde if you'd taken offence, if you haven't noticed, i only singled out the dumb blondes. From those blonde jokes. If you're smart, which you'd shown and stated very clearly and obviously in your username, you shouldn't be offended aye? And whats this thing with the hair? Why should I be jealous of blonde hair? Why not the great figure or something else?

Your argument in invalid.

Fucking cuntbag, I never recall making a fucking colossal mistake that killed an animal! You're fucking NEVER supposed to do ANYTHING different with somebody else's animal outside of the routines they've already established for you. But you've never worked a damn day in your life, so I guess I can go easy on a woman. :)

28 is rather passionate about hamsters :P

He is traumatized by the time he tried to have sex with one and his penis was too small to fit. After that, well, he has tried to make Sprinkles Von Loving, his russian hamster bride, love him again.

what are you? a 12 year old?

Maybe you did the hamster a favor.

Cotton balls do nothing but harm. BTW, Hamsters are pretty cheap at PetSmart, hint hint (;

66 how would you like it if your friend killed your pet then see how you feel about everyone makes mistakes

23: Rats are smarter, though, and have much more personality. Still, I prefer my ferrets-- they've got loads of personality, fluffy fur, cuddliness, and loyalty, can be litter trained, and provide endless entertainment. Plus, their long tails aren't creepy and bald. :] And before I get da haterz, ferrets are not rodents, and with proper care and nutrition, they aren't half as stinky as their reputation says. I never thought I'd be a ferret lover, but they're great pets for the disabled (ie me), because they're fairly low-maintenance and have huge pet therapy potential. I <3 my ferrapists. :D

hello that's what the bedding in there is for

umm the hamster sleeps everynight without cottonballs, and you decide to use cottonballs, ydi

#124, how could you think that ANYONE would ever hate on ferrets?! They're little Houdinis!

ur a stupid rat

28 the hamsters life was fucked thanks for stating the obvious

dude, good idea and everything but... they try to eat EVERYTHING. I laughed my ass off when I read this FML.

Today, I was cleaning up the inside of my beautiful cage while my owner was out. Soon after his departure, his friend came in, stared at me for five minute and gave me cotton balls. I decided to try one thinking it was a friendly gesture for I did not know what they were. I died, FML.

I REALLY HATE U OP!!

I'm with u on that I have to bullmastives and one of them ate my lil sisters hampster

Only specific breeds are, uh, "fluffy." There are also longhaired rats, but they're uncommon. Rats live longer and have more personality than the one-track-mind biting hamster. They're also highly intelligent animals. Personally, I think rats outweigh hamsters in the "cute" department.

ooh fail caring, you thinking of having kids?

They can't help the hamster's retarded. Most make a soft comfy bed outta that kinda stuff. hopefully their potential kids won't be retarded.

7 The kid will eat his pillow.

you know maybe when your kids breathe heavy you could give em a glass of draino to clear the pipes. I'm sure that's a perfectly healthy solution. go ahead.

65, lol to that

HAHAHAHAHA and maybe if they have something clogged in their throats she could give them some washing machine powder!

7- FINALLY! Someone who sees my POV! Hamsters love soft things, and constantly use them to make their nest softer. How do I know this? I own a hamster. Flooly (my hamsters name) LOVES bed fluff, which is exactly like cotton balls, except they're larger, and weirder smelling. And besides, I give Flooly cotton balls all the time. She rips them apart, and then chucks it out of her cage. OP, FYL. RIP your friend's hamster. 

*puts Legos in the crib to play with

There is a button for that.

Dumb person, actually. If hamsters slept on fucking cotton balls, the hamster would already have some in its cage.

that is not your fault!!! i would do the same thing!!

15 LOL! good one!

15 , epic win [:

I'm loving 15 right now.

#15 - One of the funniest comments here.

Where is this 15? They're not in the thread... Is my phone screwing me over?

199: It got removed.

wtf was 15s comment?!

Reminds me of the time I babysat my friend's babies and gave them plastic bags.

what a cute doggie! what breed is it?

LOL nice man lol combo breaker

This reminds me of the time I sat on your mom and ate her. Oh. Am I late?

One big happy family! You see, Pendatik, when a woman and another woman love each other('s bodies) very much, sometimes they "wrestle" and it's perfectly natural and especially hot. :D Edit: I'm the Czarina and you're his baby-daddy.

No more details. There are girls that get paid great money for explaining things they do in detail! Pay up.

Wait, you have DVD of my hobbies!? D: Bad Pendatik. Probably almost enough pounds for a ton. :)

That bitch doesn't give me my cut. :( ii, want to make pr0ns?

to Amazons* Yes!

Those are the things I ate in France! Thank you, Pendatik! I googled to make sure I knew what they were, and the pics answered my old question as to WTF I ate. I couldn't just google "Little crustacean-y thing" and get an accurate result. So yes, prawns plz.

How did my first comment in a couple weeks turn into a conversation about porn? This is just despicable. What's wrong with you people? What happened to the harmless baby murder topic that started this all?

Baby Cookie needs clothes.

Because you can't murder a baby you don't have. So, porn first, then baby making second.

hmm with the split eyes I'd have to say some Siberian husky mix?

Banana hammock

you're a dumbass.
