My poor hamster lost her foot.

The other day my daughter took her hamster out of her cage and came to me screaming that something was wrong with "Snowballs" foot.

It looked broken brown and withered.

I have NO idea how she could have hurt it, she lives in a single layer plastic cage, with a smooth plastic wheel. Alone.

Plus it was fine 2 days before when I cleaned out her cage.

I contacted the hamster rescue here in town and she said, that there was really nothing a Vet could do, to just let her be. Plus Snowball is old in hamster age (she is about 2) so even if there was somthing that could be done, it really woldn't prolong her life anyway

Well 2 days later, her foot was gone!! Like gone. She just had a stump with her little leg.

Freaked out again, contacted the rescue, and again was told it's normal, that Snowball probably chewed it off, and that she could live just fine with 3 feet.


UMMM OKAY, GROSS


Well last night I didn' t know whether to laugh or cry, she was running on her wheel, but because of her missing foot, kept falling off. it didn't faze her though. She would just hop back on and keep going until she fell off again.

My poor old hamster!!

This happened to a hamster of ours. Then another foot, then another, until he didnt have any feet. I was told they usually chew them "off". We put him out of his mental misery.

Animals are weird. I get that they are animal and just do what instinct tells them, but damn chewing off their own foot??
