    Poor Jigglypuff is going through some aging woes that I have witnessed before in my decade of dwarf love... She does not understand the use of her critter bath because she urinates and poops in there, then rolls right after. So, her tail, behind and back 2 legs are urine soaked!! I give her...

    Hey there everyone! I am new!! I have, among my other creatures, an adorable dwarf hamster named Jigglypuff. She is less than one years old, and has become my 'baby'. A month or so after she came home, I started to hear small squeaks and chirps coming from her cage. The chirps were nothing...

    I have a female Russian dwarf hamster named Janis I got a month ago and last night I noticed she was acting weird. She wasn't very active like she normally is, and seemed to be oddly tired. Then I noticed that she had blood on her bottom and it looked like it was coming from her genital area. I...

    My very sweet-natured dwarf hamster get her front paw caught today and was hanging from it for a very short while before I noticed. Now, she is noticeably limping and favouring that paw. As well, it looks like there is a bit of blood around her claws. She may have pulled her arm out of the...
