Like I said a lot has happend bad and good stuff, some good is that I won one minute of free shopping at Kruidvat our local drugstore :) I will blog about that later this week.
Something bad is that my hamster died this summer, and after our holiday I decided to finally buy a new one, because I missed having a small animal friend. And animals make me happy when I feel down. We bought a sweet really small hamster and called him Windy (I know a bit strange but that name has a whole story to it ;))
We got him friday and he was really sweet and active, but sunday evening he was lifeless in his cage :( To make the story shorter..he probably had a deadly disease called wet tail (not the symptoms yet) because his brother back in the pet store died saturday and had this disease. They were very young (I never had such a small "gold" hamster and I have hamsters for more then 10 years now) I could look for a new one but decided to wait a few weeks because although he was only with me for a couple of days it made me sad that such a small young baby animal suddenly died and I missed him. And because of the stuff that is going on..I was down and said things like I can't do anything and can't take care of anything I'm useless bla bla bla ;)
Me and Windy R.I.P. Never forget you!!!
A few weeks later a could choose a new hamster...they had two for me and it was soo hard to choose. After a few hours petting both we made a decision . My new hamster reminded us of a bear (also a donkey because of his eyes) and we called him Pooh (bear). After a few days he had Wet tail too, so I was really scared because 90% die of this disease. He had really the sypthoms and I did everything I could, I also went back to the vet that was inside the pet store (the costs were for the pet store so that was nice) the vet did not know about this disease...I was really shocked that I had to tell her everything about it. Anyway I got some antibiotics and that same evening before I gave it he was looking better already, so hopefully because of my own care too...and now he is totally better :)
This is my sweet Pooh :)
PS: ofcourse that are not my hands ;) but from my sister, she is a nail biter too, just like I was 4 years ago ;) And my nails looked a lot like hers back then ;)
I promise to blog again very soon!
