We have a thread for cat-lovers - but not one for other critters (until now).
My gorgeous winter white dwarf hamster developed a bulging eye yesterday - cue urgent vet appointment today. It is probably an abscess, but could be a tumour. Poor little critter had to have an injection in her head - I have never heard her screech like that before! - and I am to give her antibiotics daily via her water bottle for a week. She still managed to steal the hearts of the reception staff and other people waiting, though. Thank goodness for our lovely vet.
