BG...

if you're hamster has been living with a partner most of his/her life, you should get a replacement. Otherwise the poor soul will be left alone and feeling at lost. Bring him/her down to the store and observe which one clicks.

I'm no DrDoolittle but in a way..

this is about love and companionship.

Oh, sorry BG....it really was just one of those silly straying from the main thread daftnesses, just meant to be lighthearted. I'm sorry if I offended, it really wasn't meant as taking the p***. Honest.

Sorry about your little pet, too. I know what you mean. Years ago, when we lived in Amersham, near London, the kid's hamster got runny eyes, I took it to the vet in it's cage, and vet said, 'OK, we'll give it this antibiotic injection, but I'm afraid running eyes are a poor sign in this sort of animal, and you may have to face the fact that this poor girl's not got much time left.' Well, I was so upset, and it was only a tiny hamster, less than a year old. What would I tell the kids? I walked back with Florence (her name) cuddled up in a corner of the cage. On the way home there were these builders, doing up a house, and one of them shouted down to me, 'What you got under that cloth love, baked a cake for us did you darling?' .....Or something like that...you know, totally innocent fun remark......You should have heard me.......'No, I bloody well haven't got you a cake, it's my kid's hamster...who's going to DIE soon, if you must know, alright!!'

Their faces....one of them even ran after me to say they were sorry. I did feel a fool and apologised of course, but I had tears running down my face. So, I do know how it affects you, yes, even if it's just a tiny creature.

So, I am very sorry if I upset you with my silly dress post, I just thought it was so totally dotty, it would raise a laugh....

Bubbs.

Guys please stop saying sorry for taking the thread off topic, there is no need to. I love the way threads go off on obscure tangents - just like in real life conversations twist & turn.

My bad for snapping, sorry :oops:

The question now is will the surviving guinea pig get lonely? I have heard that they are very social animals. Last week someone was asking if we wanted a dwarf rabbit, didn't give it a second thought until now. But seems a little cold just replacing a pet with another, does that make sense? :-|


They don't grow, you know?! (ok, my bad this time)



Having had Hamsters for our first Monster I would recommend getting another one for the companionship, but seldom do they get along. we had to get a second 'home' as the old one constantly attacked the newcomer - - - bloody fights even.
