Hamster Emergency

Well, I haven’t posted in a while. Why? I’ve been sick. SPRING IS EVIL, I TELL YOU! I came down with a sinus infection, and the fact that pollen’s everywhere these days didn’t really ease my suffering. However, I’m a lot better now, for the most part.
Anyways, today I woke up to find something rather odd. My Campbell’s dwarf hamster, Binky, was shaking like crazy and could barely walk. We did some research, called the vet, and observed him more, and we’ve concluded he’s got diabetes. He does drink and urinate a lot, and shaking is a symptom, and his breed of hamster is commonly effected. I was crying my eyes out- he was in awful shape. He’s doing better now, though. He’s walking around, not shaking as much, and is getting back to his normal self. But we’re not out of the woods yet.
I’m really attached to the little guy, if you haven’t noticed (I’m a huge hamster fanatic). So please send your thoughts and prayers his way- I hate seeing him suffer. Thanks a bunch, everyone. Binky’s my baby, and I’d hate to lose him.
