Default Updates and Nutmeg.

Hello everyone I haven't posted on here since Halloween and sadly I have lost Theo. He was a beautiful hamster who we believe was around 3 years old (not sure as he was adopted). Sadly he developed some cuts on his body, I took him to the vets suspecting a skin condition or mites and it turned out to be skin cancer . It was devastating and really unexpected. The vet believed it was the kindest thing to put him to sleep

It has been about a fortnight now and I have a hamster called Nutmeg, he is approximately 5 months old and for some reason was never sold at the pet store so went into the adoption section. I really wasn't looking for another hamster but he caught my eye straight away and when I heard he was up for adoption I knew I had to take him! He has a lovely temperament and I believe him to be a Russian dwarf/winter white. Unfortunately he has been fed a really poor quality food that makes me worry as it is definitely not for dwarfs and contains the 'sugary' round things, corn and pea flakes. I will be slowing weaning him on to the bunny dwarf harvest.

The pictures here are in the shop. He was in a very bad cage (as you can see) and his wheel was tipped over..

No wonder you couldn't resist and had to take him home with that little imploring face looking at you. Once home with you he looks triumphant because he had finally landed on his paws. See, it was worth the wait little hamster Nutmeg!

Look at that round boy!!! I love a chubby little hamball, I don't think I could have resisted that face either!

I'm sorry about Theo. It's always hard to lose them, especially to something as impossible as cancer. But when you've done your best to give them a happy life full of love it's easier. RIP Theo <3

I think it sets off his coloring very nicely! The pink is good.
