Greetings all. Our family has a heavy heart this morning. Yesterday morning my son's hamster Lionel was just fine. Then later in the day we noticed that he was moving really slow and his spine was in a huge curve . Late last night he was hardly breathing so my husband decided to go ahead and get a hole dug because we knew what was coming. We went to bed and when we got up this morning, sure enough he was gone. My son's heart is just breaking and mine is breaking for him. The only thing that we can figure out is that he often times would crawl across the top of his cage and he must have fallen wrong and got a bad injury. We always kept his food dish on the side when my son would feed him. Lionel was funny because he'd always scoot back out into the middle. He was a sweet little thing and didn't bite like most hamsters do. We will all miss him.
I am a 40 year old wife , married to my husband of 14 years and mother to our 13 year old son.I spend my days trying keep up with both of them and our crazy schedules. I hope you'll join me on my needlework excursions. I've always got something going on!
