You don't expect animal lovers to have immaculate nails.

Re: Animal pictures?

Lol thank you, very true!
My hamster passed away in the early hours of this morning
He was very old, was a rescue, I had to feed him with a dropper when I first got him. I like to think I gave him a good life as far as captive hamsters go. I think they're my favourite little animal.

How old is very old. Hamsters only have a short lifespan. We had one it lived for three years and died in my wife's hand.

Re: Animal pictures?

3 years is good!
1000 days so I hear is what they are meant to live up until.
Well he was an unwanted runt of the litter when I got him, had had wet tail thus my having to nurse him, and due to him being a rescue I don't know how old he was-but he wasn't a baby then. I've had him at least two years, and due to ill-health I didn't expect him to last this long.
A few weeks ago I moved him from his large cage, into a normal hamster cage-because he wasn't as agile as he used to be so I was scared of him falling and hurting himself, plus he was sleeping most of the time anyway, I knew he was deteriorating.
That picture was a couple of months ago, though in hamster 'years' I am supposing it may have been compatible to ten years ago!
He was sleeping all day the other day and I checked on him and his breathing had slowed down but he was peaceful.
I put the room warmer and moved food and water closer to him, he woke briefly and I stroked him and he was okay. When I returned from work this morning he was in the same position, but had gone. It's sad but I've rescued so many animals that I'm a bit 'harder' about death-I'm not devastated or anything, he had a long life and I think about how many people treat little animals and feel I did the best I could do

Re: Animal pictures?

I found this young grey squirrel on tarmac, must have fallen out of a tree and died. I put it on a shed roof and a crow had it for lunch!

That's called recycling Kes! When we lived in the country we used to throw dead animals into our little copse - hens, cats, deer carcases (roadkill, after we'd taken the good bits off) for the foxes etc to finish off. We ended up with two nice clean deer skulls with horns after a few months, nailed them on our shed!

Come to think of it Elvis used to eat squirrels -that one was fresh so i could have had it for breakfast never mind the crows!

I suppose you didn't have any chickens when you were throwing out carcasses for the foxes.

I've got a squirrel in the freezer at the mo, got it from a farmers' market.

Yes, we had forty chickens at one time - we used to throw any that died over into the copse. Only once had a problem with foxes killing any of our live chickens.
