DD's hamster has been ill for a while. She had antibiotics for a gynae infection before Xmas and it came back so we got some more but she wasn't eating except for the little bits of veg we hand fed her and I don't think she was drinking much, just sleeping.
She was about 18 months old but until the infection was so happy and lively and was the most tame hamster.
Do you think we did something wrong? I hate to think she suffered. We still held her at night when she didn't really want to get up, just trying to let her know we were there but last night she was so peaceful it seemed cruel to make her get up so we left her to sleep.
I can't help but feel guilty - could we have got her out more etc. Poor DD is going to be devastated.
