TikTok famous hamster delights 57,000 followers after recovering from life-saving surgery

One of TikTok’s most famous hamsters has delighted and entertained 57,000 followers with updates after a life-saving surgery to remove a tumour.

Jasmyn Purewal, 15, and her mum, Harj Kalair, 46, discovered their pet - named Coco Chanel - had a tiny red spot on her stomach that turned out to be a benign tumour.

The lump continued to grow, reaching 17 percent of the rodent’s body weight, before vets at White Cross Vets, Birmingham, West Midlands, could surgically remove it.
