Default Re: How long do they live?

My first ever Syrian was a female that came from a local pet shop that was run pretty badly but considering we gave her such a lovely life and a nice cosy home to live in she lived for almost 3 years!
However both my past two baby boys that came from another pet store lived for ust under two years.
My current Hammy comes from p@h and is male and seems to be enjoying life so I doubt he'll be off over the rainbow bridge anytime soon (:

salami - female - no litters - 1yr 9mth - tumor
Orphan Annie - female - unknown litters from pet shop too old too sell, rescue kind of - 1yr 9+mth - old age? unkown
Patch - female - no litters - 1yr 8 mnth - old age? unknown
Pip - female - no litter - 1yr 7mth - tumor (suspected)
Scruff - male - 1yr 8mth - cushings
Buster - male - 4mth - unknown, hand reared from 2 weeks? my niece had him i still have his sister i don't know why he died, he was just sleeping in his bed, gone from this world.
Mungo - female - 1yr 5mth - no litters - cushings

Dwarf rescue:
pyscho bob - male - 2yrs+- old age he was wild and lasted for ages, bless him, wee nutter.

current syrians:
Eric - female - 1 litter - 10mth
Rudy - male - 10mth
Bella - female - no litters - 8mnth

i have lost 2 long haired hammies to cushings, is cushing seen more in long haired hammies? or is it just coincidence? also pip was a suspected tumor but she had a swollen abdomain with infection that wouldn't clear up, vet said tumor but reading this thread i am thinking could it have been pyometra? what are the symptoms? will have to read up on this now, i had no idea.

love

Only owned 1 Syrian Boy from a local type Petshop and he lived till a ripe old age of 4yo. He was vey sadly PTS . He stopped eating and cleaning/caring for himself and also got sticky eye, bless him. The Vet put it down to (very) old age.

Only had one hamster before Bobby - which was Boove (female) who lived for 6 months. Not too sure what happened - she had a swollen foot and wouldn't eat/drink.

All Syrians no litters
Bob 3 months male - no idea what happened he was fine the day before
Polo 1 year 10 months male- Tumour put to sleep
Sweep 1year 8 months male- no idea what happened because he seemed fine the only problem was he wasn't alive
Annabelle 1year 10 months female- stroke, unable to eat and put to sleep
Zippy 1week male- don't know what happened there
Puff 1 year 2 months male- bumped his noggin while doing acrobatics in his cage

Everyone seems to have longer living ones than me. am I doing something wrong or am I just unlucky? I'd love for one to get to 2yrs old, they all have seemed happy and healthy though so I don't know whats going on

I have only seen two of mine die so far. Both within the last week or so:

Houdini - Winter White Male - approx. 2.5 years old - Old age?
Lemmiwinks - Winter White Male - approx. 2.5 years old - Died from tumors/old age

I think they were both the same litter. A third one, Spazz, was in the same litter too. He is still very healthy and still going strong (unusually active considering his age actually). I also have a fourth Winter White, Marilyn, a female I got from a nearby store. She was tagged as a Winter White, but she might be a Campbells hybrid. She looks kinda haggard, but otherwise seems fine. Pretty active. She is around the same age as the other three.

I don't know for sure what killed Houdini. I know for sure Lemmiwinks had tumors though.

Default Re: How long do they live?

i can only remember roughly how long my hamsters lived for ,

gizmo - syrian- 17 weeks -to this day i dont know what happened, she looked and seemed really healthy but i found her dead in her house

misty - russian dwarf - 2 years- from what i gathered she had jumped off the shelf of her cage and broke her neck

casper - russian dwarf- a few months- wet tail
buttons - few months- tumour

taz- 2 months - unknown, he did go to the vet and had medication but was never properly diagnosed, from what ive read though i think it may have been his bedding as i was using the fluffy stuff
