    In September I inherited a dwarf hamster after my cousin passed away. He was super friendly and nice and I thought he would have a better home somewhere else so I gave him to a friend who teaches special needs kids as a class pet. He has been doing fabulous there. The kids built him basically a hamster castle and he does very well with them.

    This past week my friend discovered a tumor on his chest. She took Billy to the vet and he was diagnosed with cancer. Bless her heart, my friend is starting him on steroids and pain meds.

    I know hamsters don't live long, but he is very loved by the students and it would be sad to see him go so soon.

    Billy could use vibes :(

    Oh poor baby. ***VIBES*** and (((HUGS))). I was heartbroken when my heart rattie was diagnosed with cancer at only 8 months old. Horrific health for pet store animals unfortunately with being inbred and kept in tanks. :(
