Your little hamster sounds very sick. Take it to a veterinarian right away! Even if you don't have money you take that hamster right into the vet. If he/she is a good vet they should be more interested in the welfare of the hamster. You can always offer to sweep floors or clean out cages or even walk some of the dogs that they may have staying there. Get your hamster to a vet now! Good luck Marcy

What can you do if your hamster is cold?

Mainly your hamster has a cold is of not enough warmth.Mainly because people put the cages by the window in the winter so air moves to the warm animal.What to do:Move your hamster away from the window or into another roomTake a hot towel or a heating pad (low setting) and put it under the cage, not to hot to melt it.You can put a drop or two of honey in it's water.If your hamster is running on it's wheel, take the wheel out so it can rest.If yout hamster is in it's hut (which you should always have) leave it alone (except for cleaning time)And when cleaning, you can put them in a glass bowl with shaving and it's hut with the heating pad under (low setting so you cannot burn the hamster)With refusing food, try to get it's favorite treats.If they are not drinking water, you can use the tube that you can dispense into a mouth. You can get them at drug stores or pharmecies, or at the pet store. Be sure to get the smallest.Fill th dispeser with water and see if you hamster will walk up to it. Squeeze out a drop or two so they can see what it is.If they refuse it, put honey and milk with the water.Hope these tips help!
