Default My little Max...

...passed away yesterday. I knew he was an older hammy and didn't really have much time left when I got him, but it still hurts. Heck, I spent much of last night bawling.

I know that I gave him a good life while he was with me and that he died peacefully in his sleep. Max was curled up in his little igloo where he usually sleeps when I found him, cold to the touch. I tried to get him to move but there was no reaction...and when I picked him up, I knew.

I had to move his cage out of my bedroom last night because looking at it hurts. The ground is hard right now so burying Max right away isn't happening, but I am going to be looking at getting him cremated or finding an alternative that works when living in a rental...I'd feel horrible leaving him behind in the ground when I eventually move.

I swear I can still hear the squeak of his hamster wheel...

I'm so sorry for your loss.

All pets leave a hole in the heart when they go. My condolences, and hope it is some comfort to you to know that you gave Max a good life while he was with you.

I'm sorry for you. I'm sure he had a great life with you though, and of COURSE he'll always be alive in your memories.

Oh, I'm sorry! I fell in love with him when you posted about him, and I've been wanting a hammie ever since. Poor little guy. Glad you had a chance to love him; he was blessed.

Awww, that's so sad. I'm sorry! Every pet is a special treasure. You gave him a good life.
