A fat hamster has cheated death after being sucked up by a vacuum cleaner.
Rusher was saved because he was too chunky to get all the way down the hose, getting stuck halfway down and just inches from the suction fan.
Owner Jack's mum felt the vacuum jam as she cleaned his bedroom. She quickly opened the machine up and retrieved the rotund rodent just in time.
Luckily Rusher was unharmed, and after a quick check up from Jack's dad, a vet, he's now recovering at home.
