We had one that hanged itself at the top of the cage.


adutchmotherfricker

Wait what? Explain further please


jinxedtheworld

I’ve heard a story like this, I think it got its head stuck in between the bars at the top of the cage and slowly suffocated to death


InformationClean3245

This is absolutely what happened. Was quite bad on us - we used to cover the cage with a blanket during the night to cover the noise and some how while he was chewing on the blanket he mustve pushed his head thru the bars . Just found him like that the next morning


mariodnibba

My uncle did a similar thing once...

We had a black hamster. I walked into the kitchen and he was standing at his water bottle. When I walked out of the kitchen he was still there, but I noticed he wasnt moving. Little guy died standing up drinking from his water bottle.

Man, hearing all those Stories makes me think that Hamsters are really not meant to be Pets.


Banned_foraJokebro

I’d also add that people don’t usually tend to hamsters at the level they need to be the best it can be. Im guilty of this, I got a hammie when I was 7 and had absolutely no knowledge or experience of proper hamster care. Nor did either of my parents. We ended up with a hamster. The lil guy lived almost his entire life in a cage and was given the bare minimum of food, water, bedding, that thing they run on, and items to chew. I’d think this experience is probably similar to a lot of other instances of when a child is the new owner a pet hamster. Some people do it right and have the insight to look up hamster care. that’s awesome, but it’s probably not very common. most people that buy hamsters dont do the research on how to raise a happy hamster. they’ll continue with whatever is currently sustaining the bugger because it’s keeping it alive. Looking up care would take 10 minutes, the problem lies within having that forethought so it can be done.


bertiek

Hamsters are solitary, nocturnal, very active omnivores. They truly make awesome pets! But not in cheap cages being forced to interact with asshole kids.

Yes… My brother had a few hamsters. He thinks there were 3 but it was more like 10. Hamster from cage 1 lived really long but cage 2 was cursed or something and mom had to buy new hamsters to switch them for dead ones. I think cage 1 hamster sacrificed the other hamsters to live longer because he did like 3 years. One of them went especially bad. My ferret knocked down the cage from table killed him and stuffed him in my brothers winter shoes for later but mom managed to found the body after about a week of frantic search before my brother could pull the shoes on in few months and dip his toes in a hamster mummy.

Great story


Mis_Red

I don't remember this personally, but my mother has told me the story a few times. We had 2 hamsters and 2 mice. One day they got out of their respective cages and one of each species got killed by the other species. The remaining hamster and mouse got left outside in the afternoon heat of summer in Key West, FL and got fried. We also had a hamster, years later, that died of old age at roughly 5 years old. I was in a pet store one time and talked with an employee about that hamster and they were astonished and how long it lived.

I had a hamster die of old age he legit looked like Gandalf the white near the end And I watched him literally take his last breath it was so deep and he looked me and the eyes, and passed peacefully . He did eat his entire family tho (Except for the one that stuck his head in the bars and died of a stroke) Never once he attacked a human. He probably didnt like our taste

When discussing our childhood pets my wife was shocked, SHOCKED, that my hamster lived to be three years old. She was CONVINCED that they only lived one year. Poor unlucky furballs.


slukalesni

Well, it also depends on how old they are when you buy them. I've had two golden hamsters, bought at a few weeks old, that lived to the ripe age of 4. That said, some of the suckers barely lived to be one year old. They're very prone to cancer.


Lukaroast

Yeah, I watched two (separate owners and incidents) dwarf hamsters die while struggling to move around their cages because of the copious tumors covering their body


badmutherfukker

Yeay mine too. It was an eurasian hamster and he had lived almost 4 years the lil bastard. He also broke his leg once and my mom “fixed” it for him cause no vet would do anything. He was fed a shitton of vegetables and seeds and had a fairly big cage with a long and strangely shaped tube going through it and for 2 years he didn’t wanted to live in the little house, only the tube and he stuffed it with the stuff we gave him to stay warm. Edit:Spelling

I had my hamster die of a heart attack while running on it's wheel during the night. All I heard was the squeaking of the wheel then a thump.

My hamster suffocated from eating an old gum he found under my brothers bed. Rabbit 1 broke his spine when jumping down from my arms. Rabbit 2 was never found but a 0.5x0.5inch piece of furr. Guinea pig 1 and 2 where eaten by the neighbors dog.

I think Rabbit 2 was probably eaten by the neighbors dog, too

Yea I think some kind of bird got it because its fence was intact

I had a hamster Ann and Amy , one night Ann ate Amy and left the bones and fur but she went onto the wheel thing and the guilt must amhave driven her kver the edge because she got her head stick in between the wheel steps and it snapped and she was hanging from the top of it , 6yr old me wasn’t ready for that

We almost had hamsters but decided on guinea pigs instead, three died of natural causes each living around 5-6 years, about right in the middle of average life expectancies for guinea pigs. The 4th one survived just about anything the world could throw at a small rodent, infections, cancer, several cat attacks, obesity, frequent assault from the other three until he got his own cage, and one time while on vacation we came back to discover the neighbour who had agreed to look after him had fed him maybe once or twice? Anyway he lived through that too, he lived to be 9 years and 5 months (give or take a month or so) which is a year longer than the average life expectancy, i saw his body, yet i still can't shake the feeling he dug his way out of the grave we dug him and went on to outlive us all.


Ironavenger475

I had 2 male hamsters... worst mistake EVER. In the start they were sleeping together, as time was passing they started to become territotial, the cage had 2 floors so it was 1 upstairs and 1 down. When they met, all hell let loose. So, one day the 1 hamster bit off the leg of the other, i woke up and he had one leg missing... good times. By the way, their names were Taker - from Undertaker and Rey from Rey Mysterio, in case you are wondering, Taker won the territorial war and bit off the leg of his former brother and later arch-enemy Rey. All these happened back in 2008 era, so yeah... NEVER buy 2 males and stick them together in one place.

meraii

My first hamster escaped and met my cat. My cat bit a hole through her eye and out through her brain. Hamster lived, was put down the next day. My Second hamster died at the grand old age of 4 and half, peacefully in my hand. I fed that hamster cod liver oil mixed with her food. she was a proper trooper until the end. My third hamster discovered that my cat had learned how to open hamster cages. My fourth hamster died of a very violent heart attack. The noises it made were rather upsetting. My fifth hamster had some kind of gland problem, lost all of her fur and was very poorly. Had to be put to sleep. My sixth (and final) hamster was really dumb but managed to live to 3 and a half (single pet household by that point). we could tell he was on his way out, and he finally departed in the care of a friend whilst I was on my honeymoon. She kept him in the freezer until I got back so I could bury him.

My father-in-law had one when he was a child, he thought that it was a good idea to attach his action-man parachute to it and to then launch him from his seventh floor bedroom’s window. (He had made a lot of launch tests from his bed first and it apparently worked perfectly fine) To this day, he still claims that it should have worked if this “dummy hamster” wouldn’t have panicked and tied the parachute’s string around its paw.


IDONTKNOWWHOAMie

We had that pressure hose at home and we had some relatives over at that time the tap was lose so some water was dripping my cousin went to turn off the tap ( the pressure one connected to tap )and that same time the younger sibling were playing with the hampter and the hampter thirsty started drinking from the hose it was thin enough for a hamster to suck on it. My cousin taking random guess on which way the tap turns of literally turned it on and just waited long enough to hear the screams of our younger siblings. The hampter literally went balloon mode and died
