My daughter's hamster was put to sleep this morning, he was elderly and going bald but had started to get a nasty sore under his naked belly, the vet said antibiotic's might work but as he is so old it would just be prolonging it and he would be uncomfortable, i asked my 11 year old this morning what to do if that was suggested and she said "put to sleep as i don't want him in any pain" but to bring him home so she could bury him 8... i have been crying all day on and off poor little man, i have bought a large plant pot some soil and and flower's so she can bury him when she gets home from school.

Aww that's so sad. Poor little Stevie. Sounds like you have a very grown up daughter, I think you did the right thing asking her what to do. It's a shame they don't live very long as they are such great characters. He will be feeling much better now. Sweet dreams Stevie x
