Lexy - not sure what to do

Post by Sue_pawz on Sat Apr 27, 2013 8:52 pm

Lexy is very unwell. She is unsteady on her feet and you can see in her eyes she just isn't right.

I don't know what to do. If we take her to the vet, it's a one way trip Sad I don't know if we should go now, or if she can hang on. I don't know if she's in pain - she isn't squeaking and lets us stroke her. And she is eating.

I don't know what's best for her Sad

It is very hard but sometimes all you can do is be with her. Hugs

I can only tell you what I would do.... if she seems to be comfortable, I think I would just leave her for now.

Keep us posted Hugs

We have left her be. When I left her, she had fallen asleep in her food store corner. I put her some bedding in the corner as she felt a little cold. She barely stirred. I don't think she'll be with us in the morning.

It's horrible when sometimes all you can do, and the best thing to do, is nothing.

I hope she has a peaceful night Hugs Hugs Hugs Hugs

She's still with us, but only just. When I went in this morning, she was curled in a tight ball. She barely stirred as I picked her up - her little nose twitched and her paws moved a little, and she was breathing but she didn't open her eyes.

I gave her a kiss and we've put her back to sleep.

The pyometra has finally caught up with her - she's done so well to last this long with it.

Love you little bear x

Well, our lexy bear is hanging in there. We keep checking her, and she stirs a little as we stroke her. I'm astounded she's still here to be honest. We're trying to keep her warm and comfortable, poor little sweetie.

We appreciate the vibes x

Lexy went to the bridge this afternoon.

She hung on bravely, I've never known a hamster with such fight!

While we're obviously sad, we are pleased she's at peace, and that she was able to die in her sleep at home.

We'll get her a plant and bury her tomorrow.

Thanks for the vibes all x

I'm so sorry, Sue Sad

Lexy is at peace now and had a wonderful life with you guys. She was clearly much loved and will be sadly missed.

I'm sending loads of hugs to you and your OH Hugs

Scurry free at the bridge, little Lexy Love
