Your first port of call is the vet to see how badly injured your hamster is. I hope you can get her right down there and she can be helped.

Ok then you need to keep her very quiet for now. Make sure she is warm but not hot and place food and drink nearbye. You may need to offer the water bottle spout to her mouth to see if she will lap. A tiny cube of cucumber may be taken or a small teaspoon of babyfood like chicken and veg type in a jar. This will give her some chance of healing. Put a cloth over her cage to allow her peace and see how she does. Nature will take it's course and she will either heal and come round or pass. With pets like this it is really important you find a vet who will care for them in your area and have a vet fund available. I hope she rallies round.

I'm so sorry for your loss. At least you kept her comfortable at the end.
I think it may be best not to have any more small furries until you can have a place that they can be very secure and locked away from cats or other animals and that you have found a vet who can treat them if need be. This is crucial to providing the best care for our pets.

Yes, I agree ,he wasnt ever interested in her before, so it shocked me when he did that, but I made her a little casket and buried her with the rest of my fury friends

So sorry for your loss, it's really hard to lose any pet but it's especially hard when it's a sudden loss. It must have been so horrible for you. Are you ok?
