I just wanted to create a little thread about my little Misty ham. She passed away last month. I believe she suffered a stroke, then she passed away peacefully in my hands, there was nothing that could have been done, she had been fine the night before, although she had begun to show signs of ageing. I do not know her exact age, I adopted her in March, they said she was between 18months and 2yrs, so she could have been quite an old hammy. Whatever age she was, I know she had a good few months with me, and knew what a decent sized cage was while she was here. Rest peacefully little Mistykabobs. She might be 'just a hamster' to some, but she was such a little sweetheart.
