So, I'm back on the internet and I did have lots of exciting news.. which I will post about another day. Today I'm going to post about Doug.
He's not been well for a while, something (we think) to do with his kidneys. He's been going bald and peeing a lot, which all points to renal problems, not a lot can be done about them. Anyway, today, in the midst of dealing with upstairs' errant kitten and a stupidly big bookcase, I noticed that Doug was in a funny position. Whilst holding a kitten unceremoniously in one hand and a shelf in the other, I asked Benn to check.
I went to hand the kitten back and Benn confirmed the worst. He looked peaceful. I, on the other hand, have been bawling my eyes out.
I hope there are plenty of peanut sticks wherever hamsters go...
