The "death like state" is hibernation, and they only go into it when it's very cold. Not usually in houses.

I sadly know that my hamster has died i just cant understand why a perfectly happy hamster who wasnt depressed and ate loads would die so suddenly.

She had a block and knawed her teeth down on her igloo and her mineral block. I dont know how long she was though so she could of been quite old from the shop and also i dont know if she had an illness from there.

My parents think that it was possibly connected from the attacks she received. Although she couldn't have another hamster in the cage or be housed with another hamster, she was really chatty to me, squeaks and clicks, she understood and knew my voice so was never really lonely and when i went out she always came over to me to say hi when i changed her food and water

If you ring the Pet Samaritans then they can help, I rang them after Muffin died, if you type it into google the number should come up. Its free, and the people are really nice.

I've kept syrian hamsters for years. The average age is 2.5 years. My last lived for 3 years. Don't feel too bad about it, sounds like you did your best.

I've had 3 hamsters, the first ran somewhere and we never found it, second died at about 3 years and the third died at about 3 years. The last one was really good too - she'd go asleep anywhere (i.e. in your lap or shirt) and never bit anything ! I want another one!

she always came out in the mornings to say hi to me, n in the day and when she wanted a bit of white chocolate the hamster treats i mean she would look at you, with big sad eyes and go crazy over them and hide them she was my first hamster i've ever looked after my first proper pet ive owned.

I had mice before but i was really young so my mum mostly looked after them for me. We had pets cats but again family pet and my mum looked after him espicially his last days when he had tones of medication for his heart/kidney problems

Sorry to hear about your hamster. I'm sure its not due to anything you have done, Perhaps the fact that she was slow to recover from her leg wound and hte bites is an indication of a long standing fault that you could easily miss.
It sounds like she was a well cared for happy pet and you cnat ask for much more than that.

My current hamster Mabel is 2 years old, but was an ex breeder who has had 6 litters before I took her on, which normally takes it out of them so im surprised she has lived this long.

Dont worry my cousin's hamster died a few weeks ago and I was kind of the stepmom to it. Well its was the funniest ever cause none of us wanted to take it out of the tube so her dad picked up the tube and dropped it onto the floor so the hamster fell out of the tube. Then she started moving, we were like sammy ur alive. We gave her water and went out for dinner as we had planned. When we came back the dam hamster was fine and running around like a maniac, so we just guessed that she was just dehydrated and got stuck in the tubes.

So 2 days later we get home and see her stuck again and this time she was really dead and didnt take any water when we tried to give to her. This will always be an amusing story for me and my cousin. Our 1st pet together so now we are pushing for a chinchilla or rabbit.
