R.I.P Bilbo

Hey readers, You've probably guessed from today's title or if you follow us on any social media platforms you'll know this already, but Bilbo sadly passed away the other day. Bilbo passed peacefully and naturally due to old age. He was nearly 3 years old! That's incredible for a Syrian, especially a rescue. Bilbo was rehomed to us at the age of 2.4 years  which can be extremely stressful for animals at the best of times. We decided to do everything at a slower pace than usual, we let him adjust to the new sounds and smells before upgrading his cage, we slowly built up his play-times, changed his diet at an even slower pace of the course of 6 weeks. We just wanted everything to be easier for him. We honestly had no idea Bilbo would push through to the age that he did, but it makes me so so proud to say that we had a long journey together. We were expecting a brief encounter but Bilbo became one of the most loved and nurtured hamsters.  He was also one of my Mum


Hi guys, So I never actually got the chance to introduce Ru due to me only starting my blog quite late into my rescuing. I have so many animals so to get detailed posts about all these animals out AND take care of them all is tough going. I also have to look after my own health due to me being very disabled from the waist down and I even have some limits above my waist too, but that's a different story. So basically I wanted to talk about Ru as he recently passed away. It was very peaceful, he went to sleep in his little house and never woke up. He died of old age and showed no signs of death even till the night before he died. It's all I can ask for, really. So Ru was from an advert on gumtree selling an elder gerbil with a gerbilarium. The cage was filthy and from the pictures, he looked quite scraggy. May I also add Ru was being sold as a female. I contacted the guy who was probably the most dull and emotionless person I have ever spoke to. I offered to pick Ru up
