"Hamster Potter" is the perfect distraction.

However you felt when you woke up this morning, you’ve likely had enough politics for the time being. You may have tried to distract yourself by checking Facebook. Those of us who did know that didn’t work. Perhaps your tried the radio or chatting with coworkers or classmates. Once again, chances are sooner or later politics seeped their way in.

Well, we at Petcha.com have a solution for you: a video of hamsters recreating “Harry Potter”.

If you’re anything like us, you can get lost in a book or a film. Your mind stays focused on the characters and the adventures they’re having.

And when there’s cute little critters involved? Well, that just makes the distraction even cuter.

The video, dubbed “Hamster Potter” and posted to YouTube by Mashable Watercooler, features hamsters from Westchester Rescued Hamster Haven in New York. In it, a hamster, presumably playing the title character, is summoned to Hogwarts, the boarding school for hamster wizards. He travels by train and by boat to get there. Upon arriving, the magic takes over, with the hamsters in the framed photographs suddenly moving (how did they do that?!). His parents even appear in a mirror.

Hamster Potter meets the other students, gathers in the Great Hall and engages in a game of quidditch.
 

We recommend watching the video on repeat.
