Growing old...

Every night when I feed my hamsters, I feel sad when it comes to Terter. She's more than two years old now. She is one half of the original pair of winter hamsters. The other half, Hamham died very much earlier.
Terter during the younger days
Terter, the Winter hamster, looks like a beauty, huh?

It really saddens me to see her condition now. She can barely walk. Her two hind legs seems to have given up. When she moves, it is with her two front legs, dragging the hind legs as she crawls around. She does not seem to have any appetite to eat these days. All she does now is just lie down and sleep.
Terter and her babies
Terter and her lil babies. Yes, she's very fertile. :)

Terter has not been playing with her wheels for the past few months already. But the past week, she's gotten weaker. I guess this is a cycle everyone of us will go through. Since she's not really able to move about, I've been feeding her vitamins, water and peeling the kuachi for her. And how I wish I had spent even more time with her. I neglected the hamsters ever since I got my puppy -- Gerger.

Actually, Gerger should be grateful to Hamham and Terter. I had made a deal with my wife (still girlfriend back then) that if I could keep the hamsters and show I can take care of them, then we would consider adopting a puppy. And of course before we had the hamsters, I had to prove I was capable by taking care of some cactus (died not too long after we got the hamsters).

I am doing everything possible to make Terter feel comfortable. I just hope she's not suffering...

Don't worry. I'm sure you're a good 'dad'. Let her enjoy the rest of her living days.
