UPDATE

Ghost passed away this afternoon, His left eye wasn't crusted over it had actually burst and the encrustation was blood, that side of his face was also starting to show signs of swelling. He was also very weak and couldn't manage more than a few steps at a time his breathing was also somewhat ragged.
I have buried him under the Cherry tree in our new garden he is wrapped in tissue and have made an improvised coffin for him from a cardboard egg box. I want to get a nice pebble and paint a Ghost on it as his marker stone.
RIP little dude, play well over the bridge little one meet up with Forrest and Pip they will show you round.

A GHOST PASSED BY THIS WAY TODAY,
I HAVE HEARD OF A BRIDGE NOT FAR AWAY
THE RAINBOW COLOURS SPARKLE AND SWAY
BE CAREFUL MY FRIEND AND DO NOT STRAY
GOOD COMPANY AWAITS YOU JUST MAKE YOUR WAY
A GHOST PASSED BY THIS WAY TODAY.

A GHOST PASSED BY THIS WAY TODAY,
AN ETHERAL FORM IN PRISTINE GLORY,
BUT I SHALL STAY TO TELL HIS STORY,
NO GREST DEEDS OF DARING DO,
JUST PAWS AND WHISKERS AS YOU DO,
A GHOST PASSED BY THIS WAY TODAY.


P.S. I feel really shit will have to tell Mrs R when she comes home...Bugger

Farewell little Ghost. You will be much missed here and those wonderful photos taken of you.
Play well over the bridge with Forrest and Pip.

Oh Rads, I just wanted to post on this thread as well as Ghost's memorial thread. I'm gutted to hear the wonderful, gorgeous and cheeky Ghost has gone to the rainbow bridge. He will have been welcomed with open arms by the other members of Ham-Orchestra and all of the other hammies. I cried reading your poem, your tribute to your heart-ham.
Thinking of you and sending you big hugs xxx

Thank you all Inc TL, Coco, Beth and all who have posted here and on Ghost's memorial thread.
He was much loved and he was quite a unique little fellow who preferred his own company mostly, I'm sure he looked at me as the giant who fed him treats and made the nice fresh food appear like magic, and who also mercilessly cleaned out his cage and would then have a major sulk/hissy fit about it.
Having to put him down was a terribly hard thing to do personally, but after his left eye burst I have no idea how it happened as there was nothing for
him to catch it on etc. It shall remain a mystery that will bug me as I will keep thinking what should I have done etc.
Be advised there following pictures are the last of Ghost the second shows his eye some may find these distressing for which I apologise.

He was still trying to get out of my hand when I took these but he was so weak, it all makes me feel guilty, shamed and angry.

I'm so sorry Rads, but please don't feel guilty or shameful you were a wonderful hammy dad and gave Ghost everything he could have wanted. You gave him the most selfless gift when he needed it most. You set him free and he is now running around happily at the bridge.

You've nothing to feel ashamed of Rads, we all know that you loved Ghost unconditionally, you spoiled him with so much love and care and you gave us a lot of laughter and happiness with his thread. As hamster owners we do feel guilty and blame ourselves when really we shouldn't.
