When Berlin Police officers in Germany received a call this week from a local hospital, they were surprised they were asked to save a… hamster! Apparently, the critter was lost or abandoned. The poor little fellow would cower alone in a nearby bush, so the hospital staff decided to call for help. Fortunately, the police officers took the mission of saving the hamster seriously, and came to the rescue.
“A police patrol found him and named him spontaneously Sir Henry,” a spokesperson for the Berlin Police told The Dodo. “They put him in an empty box (usually made for clinic-gloves) and took him to the police station.”
There, Sir Henry was introduced to police equipment, and the hamster seemed to absolutely love it. Then, he was taken to the animal shelter – but the policemen didn’t want to say ‘goodbye’ to him. “The next day, one of our police officers appeared at the animal shelter and adopted him as a new family member,” the police spokesperson said.
“Let’s say he has been also warmly welcomed as a part of the whole ‘family’ of the Berlin Police department.”

Someone even did a drawing of the cutest addition to Berlin Police inspired by the story
Dutch artist Nadya Bonten-Slenders creates beautiful illustrations, usually with one or more rats as the center point, though every now and then she branches out to hamsters, cats, pandas and sometimes even people. Nadya has been running her own illustration business for a couple of years now.
Over the years she has developed a style that is truly her own; her illustrations are always cute as a button and have an ethereal and delicate air about them. Nadya is a self-taught artist and thus built her career on experience only, making sure to always improve her craft. Nadya also illustrates children’s books.
In 2013 she started a 365-day illustration challenge. For the duration of one year she made and published one illustration per day. This really shaped and improved her drawing style and creativity.
