    Another life taken way too soon...

    This time it was Ginger, my sister's sweet little dwarf hamster... she'd been having diarrhea, which we noticed just the evening before, so we took her to the vet the next day (yesterday) when it didn't clear up... she also was less active than usual. The vet mentioned wet tail and gave us some Bene-bac and... some other kind of medicine (it just says... Trib?) to try to help her, but...

    My sister and I just woke up not too long ago, and she got Ginger's food bowl out to put fresh food in. I immediately got scared because if she was sleeping, she should've woken up and noticed. So I climbed down from the top bunk and looked in Ginger's wooden house thing, and saw the poor hamster laying on her side, not breathing. We only had this little baby for 2 months... she was my sister's first pet... we'll miss you, sweet Ginger...

    I'm very sorry to hear of your loss.
    Sounds like Ginger did have a very good life, although short.
    Best wishes to you and your family.

    I am so sorry to hear of your loss. It is so sad that Ginger was so young, but you and your sister did everything you could to take care of her properly and give her a good life. You are in my thoughts- take care.

    I am sorry for your sister's and your loss. There aren't any words I can offer to make this time feel better, but I hope that knowing that I think, from what I read, she was a great Mommy to Ginger warms her up a little. I am sure Ginger thought so too.

    Thanks, guys... I admit I wasn't quite as close to Ginger as my sister was, but I still loved her, and it won't be the same without her wiggliness... :<
