another Boo entry

piffle, i came in here to look something up. i stopped to open the window and forgot completely about what it was.

so i looked up skinny hamsters. the most useful thing i found was the advice that if he is still eating and drinking and playing, not to worry about him too much. i have to clean his cage today to see that he doesn't have a stomach blockage of any kind. i'm also changing his bedding to a recycled paper bedding that dissolves in water and won't cause any blockages. i had been using just regular paper fluffy chunky stuff. he moves it around and can get it in and out of his cheeks, so i'm not much worried about it.

other than being skinny, he is doing really well. he is completely independent, plays hard, though he still won't play in his wheel, i know the smallness of it compared to the cage of wheeliness he was in, but really. his love for fresh vegetables has grown. they are all i see him eat lately. and he eats them all. i just did a condo check for moldy or dried out veggies and there are none. but i worry he isn't eating his puppy chow so much as just stashing it. i need to get him some chicken flavored dog treats and a new kind of seed mix i've been reading about.

i am so determined to keep Boo healthy. we got him through his injury, the main wound is almost healed and his tummy is healed enough that he likes belly rubs again. he eats out of my hand and doesn't run when he sees me anymore. i guess the memory is short in hamsters.
