Kate Winslet Traumatized by Hamsters!

Kate Winslet was traumatized when her pet hamster ate its babies.

The Oscar-winning actress has revealed how she was left suffering from repetitive nightmares as a child after her family refused to listen to veterinary advice and her furry pet killed its offspring.

“When I was a kid, one of our hamsters suddenly gave birth — we didn’t even know she was pregnant,” Kate told Empire magazine.

“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. This obviously affected me badly as I had a recurring dream about hamsters gobbling up their babies until I was about 15.”
