Summer memory by emmil Summer memory by emmil
Summer = a lot of flowers blooming.
And so that's the theme for this photo which is also my entry for the Hamster Summer Contest hold by #HAMSTER-lovers

Eva is an old hamster, she has cataracts on both eyes. Her left eye's iris doesn't even react to the light anymore... She has a fat bump on her left eye lid since september, last year : [link] The good news is the bump is slightly getting smaller now and fur has grown on it. The bad news is another bump has started showing on the right eye lid too. Anyway, she's healthy now and her nose & whiskers are doing awesome jobs for her sight. :)

Since they're nocturnal, I don't think hamsters' vision is all that great to begin with. So losing it probably isn't a big deal.

And if she's healthy, who cares about the little bumpies? :aww:

Yeah, it's just that the bumpies sometimes make her eyes look sleepy, sly or even sad, lol...

She looks so much better than she looked last year.
I am not an expert with hamsters, but she does look good now: you can see that she's old and her eyes are problematic, but she looks like an ealthy old lady. :)
I have a blind cat (he was born without eyes) and it's amazing to see how they can have a normal and happy life, even if they can't see.
I love all animals, and hamsters are adorable, but I can't keep them: I am too soft and their average life span is too short. I prefer keeping animals that can live longer.

Most animals don't have good eye sights, hamster don't, reptiles don't, and dogs can not see colors only black, gray white only. But I guess it won't bother them becoz they have superb nose, whiskers and awesome hearing that help them walk, eat and do other activities... :)

Yeah, after 2 of my hamsters gone, I think I can prepare my heart better when it's time to let Eva go oneday... I hope. :)

Yup! Difficult for us to understand that their perspective is different from ours.
I am terrible at accepting death and suffering. :(
