I special order his food because no one carries good hamster food and he has a big cage with a proper size 12 inch wheel for a syrian hamster! We are all shocked here. I'm so confused It happened very quickly and he was fine up until. He was from a petstore (I know shame on me but at the time I couldn't locate any other options for hamsters), so I'm sure he could have bad genetics or any number of predispositions. He was just supposed to be very young so I don't believe it. I'm sitting here staring at an empty tank like

Awh,

Pet Stores aren't really healthy and clean places. They carry germs. I have heard so many times that Pet Stores put males and females together (Brother and Sister) and some people, when they buy them, they give birth to their brother or dads babies!! Veryyy sad! I would never want to buy a pet from them. It's more like a rescue.
I am soooo sorry for your little hamster! He seems like he had a fantastic life! Hope all is well,
Katie
