Update on Hammy…my life as a Mom

If you have followed my blog you may remember the story about Hammy (the hamster) and his near death experience. I am happy to report that Hammy is mostly well and has almost doubled in size -just compare the photo in the original blog to this one!

I think it is normal for them to gain weight…although he sits like this all the time which is both funny and strange. One question though for any hamster experts that may be reading this; Do you notice the small red spot below his left eye? It has been there for months and is not going away. Any idea what it might be?

Just for fun we weighed Hammy and my other sons hamster (little Ham) and this chubby one weighs 2.5 oz and the other is 1 oz!

    Might want to get that little spot checked out. WIth those little guys sometimes things like that can be cancer. : / He looks pretty healthy though so it could be a sore of some kind.

    I personally would have the little dot checked. These little guys can get cancer very easliy…….much better to rule it out and make sure it’s nothing. : )

    Glad Hammy is well, and he is so adorable. I have no idea what the red dot is…But instead of SITTING in the exercise wheel, maybe he should walk on it! LOL So very cute!
