I'll be wishing you the very best on your two assessments; I'm sure you will ace them. Congrats on Cora's placing in the show; I'm sure she will continue to be a strong contender in your show team. Have tons of fun enjoying your early retirement, Victoria; you still are a beauty.

Less than two months after Victoria got a skin split that ended her show career, Matthew went on to develop a skin split. Thankfully his doesn't look as bad as Victoria's did so I'm hoping he'll heal well and will be able to carry on showing.

This weekend there was a fair few firework displays around us and poor Matthew was having such a tough time with it and yesterday Cora decided to join him in being anxious but she at least had the sense to bury herself deep in her nest after a while.

Juno on the other hand was completely unphased by it all and sat up on the top of her hammock hoping there would be some extra seeds on offer.

Sorry to hear that Matthew & Cora has such a hard time with the fireworks, it was quite stressful here too but thankfully it's over now.
Sorry to hear that Matthew has a skin split too, I think this is the first I've heard of one in a male, hope he heals up & is looking his usual handsome self really soon.

Oh no poor Matthew I hope he makes a speedy recovery. Who would have thought that little Juno would be so brave, she has obviously been having lessons from Jessie and is using every opportunity to beg for more seeds

They seem to occur in males a lot less frequently than in females which is why I was surprised to see one on the neck of one of my boys. Thankfully his hasn't seemed to be as bad as Jessie's usually are and Victoria's was quite a nasty one too. I don't think she'll ever get her perfect fur back.

Oh Juno is brave for such a tiny hamster and I think she's been learning all she can from Jess and Vicky. Who'd have thought that this is the same girl who didn't understant that the most important part of begging for seeds is waiting for them rather than running off when the seed approaches.

Well I spoke too soon about Matthew's skin split as this morning he was out and about in his cage and I noticed that his skin split had taken a turn for the worst. I've seen a fair few of them now and I was quite concerned about how this one was looking so I took him off to the vet to get it looked at.

He's got some inflammation around it so it could have been that something had got in to the wound that was irritating it but we've got some antibiotics and some metacam for him and I've been told to bring him back in two weeks if it's not healing.

He was ever such a good boy though... all his show experience comes in handy when you need them to stand nicely whilst they're being looked at. We've not seen this vet before and she said she'd never had a hamster behave as well as Matthew did so he got himself a few extra treats when I put him back in his cage afterwards.

I'm not sure what impact this will have on his show career as his fur may never lie as it used to but we'll have to see what happens.

So sorry the skin split is worse than normal, what a brave and good boy Matthew was at the vet. Fingers crossed the metacam gets it healed up soon.
