My name is***** am really sorry to hear about your hamster. Unfortunately, hamsters usually only live about 2 years, so Rosie is a very old girl. The most common cause of death in rodents is cancer and I am very concerned that she may be suffering from this. I would recommend taking her to your regular veterinarian so they can evaluate her and decide if there is a treatment that may help or if she getting ready to cross the rainbow bridge. Again, I am so sorry she is sick.
Regards, ***** ***** this answer helps you. If it does, please consider rating it.
