Earlier this week our little roborovski hamster, Peppa, passed away. She was nearly two, which was a good age for such a tiny creature, it was sad though.
Today when I cleaned out our little three-legged hamster, Daisy, I could not get her to wake up.
Her whiskers twitched and I could see her breathing, but her eyes stayed closed. I popped her into a fleece sleeping bag and surrounded her with straw and bedding, but she still wouldn’t wake.
So I put her in the warmest place I could think of…
It took a while and she felt really cold, but finally she began to stir. She is now back in her cage happily filling her cheeks and running on her wheel.
