Flan

Flan wrapped in a towel

Tonight I had to stay at work until late. When I arrived home just an hour ago the first thing I did was check how Flan was doing. I found her lying in a corner of her cage outside her nest. I thought she was eating, but when she noticed me she tried to move. She only managed to move the upper part of her body, and she looked scared, very scared. I took her in my hand carefully. Her hind legs were cold and rigid. I think she is paralyzed.

I have wrapped her in a towel to make sure she's not cold. I have hand-feeded her some egg, and now she's in my lap as I write this, wrapped in her towel. She's sleeping.

It's almost 1:00am here. I will take her to the vet first thing in the morning.

desde argentina te deseo lo mejor para flan....y para sus hermanitos.

leyendo tu pagina, me doy cuenta que tener un hamster es mas complicado de lo que suponia...

Realmente deseo mucho que flan se recupere y sienta sus patitas otra vez.
EXITOS!

It must be so scary to not be able to move all of a sudden. She is so small, and she doesn't understand why she can't get up and walk around. Good luck Flan!

Oh poor little Flan. Don't do a Baru on us. Two hamsters dying in one year isn't very good is it? You look really cute in the towel by the way.
Best wishes Dan.
