Mocha

January 12th, 2004

Well, all things come and pass, and today it was time for poor little Mocha. Almost two years old, about par for your average hamster, Mocha stuffed one too many sunflower seeds into her cheek pouch. She got an infection which damaged her left eye, and despite antibiotics, special feed and the best efforts of the vet, she just couldn’t take on the infection. She slowed down, and seemed to have stopped eating. I’ve been dropper-feeding her and she would take a little bit of it, but as the day went on she had less and less energy, until the poor thing was simply breathing and little else. Warm and cuddled up in her bedding, she passed away late tonight.
