    Buffy is going to the vets tonight, she needs her nails clipped and unfortunately there is nobody else to hold her still while I do it, I tried and she bled so I am too wussy to try again also she really needs a general health check. Last time she went to the vets she got so stressed that it took her weeks to recover and I am worried that the vet will write her off because she is so old.

    She is not a happy hamster:(. The vet has only been able to take a bit off as she has really long quicks to her nails, apparently hamsters are not meant to live as long as she has. The vet confirmed an earlier stroke but said if she is still eating, drinking and playing there is no problem. Buffy is now exhausted, she has eaten her choccy drop apology from me and gone straight to bed, so fingers crossed it hasn't upset her too much.

    I was talking to her all the way there and all the way back, bit worrying for the other road users as I appeared to be on my own in the car:eek:ut:.

    Buffy is very old (4 years old) and she doesn't walk as much as the younger ones, I have only started having to have her nails cut recently and the younger ones don't seem to have long nails, but it is something you have to keep an eye on.

    4 years is indeed very old for a hammie. It's amazing how well Buffy is doing considering...
