All about Xiaoling
We all know how important nutrition is to good health. Food gives us fuel for energy and allows us to do things that we usually take for granted. The same goes for animals. However, when an animal is sick, or is in the hospital, it can often be very tricky to get them to eat properly. The term “anorexia” means that an animal is inappetent, uninterested in food, and has stopped eating. It is very important to keep the calories up in a sick patient since this is the time they need them the most. Nutritionists have calculated formulas for energy requirements for different sized animals that are healthy.

A Tribute to Xiaoling
Our Chinese hamster, Xiaoling, died today--December 2, 2004.
He will be missed by his "Aunt Tara" (cat) and "Uncle Rusty" (cat) and by his mom, Brittany, and his grandparents, Benay and Gary.
We hope that in "Hamster Heaven" (Neverland), he'll have plenty of sunflower and pumpkin seeds and a nice wheel to run on. He likes that. He was timid and shy.
Bye, Xiaoling. Say hello to Little Georgie, Little B. and Tiny Benny for us.
Love, Brittany, Benay, Gary, Rusty and Tara
