Ninja has reached extreme old age, and is now not even able to reach her water bottle. I have put a tiny dish of water in her cage. It breaks my heart to see her staggering around, half the time rolling in her bedding, trying to find her footing. We call her Ninja because she used to be the most nimble and energetic of our hamsters.
Once again, we are at this painful stage - dreading the worst, and suffering while waiting :( We are bringing her to the vet tomorrow, but truth is, there is no cure for mortality :(
