    Hi everyone, I'm new as we recently adopted a 4 year old cat (we named him Grimm) who had been abandoned by some neighbours.

    My dwarf hamster of three years is now obviously a senior and has been diagnosed with cataracts. (Apologies I don't know how to spell it) His behaviour has changed as he has become a bit slow which is all normal with age, that isn't what I'm worried about though. One of his from teeth seems to...
