The End of Another Era

Posted in Hamsters at 7:40 pm by Ravenshadow

Just as the title of this post says; it is the end of another era.
Having only just posted about Rem the other day, I come home to find that she has sadly passed away. Took a few attempts to actually remove her from the cage after having discovered her buried under sawdust, bedding and other Roborovski; they really did not want me to take her out of the cage.

What makes it a little more sad is the fact that she was approching her third year, which would have made her ancient in hamster terms. I was holding out a small amount of hope that she might just solider on that little bit more, but alas it was not meant to be.
Rem was born on the 26th of April 2006, making her two years and nine months old. I believe that makes her the oldest hamster I have had.

She will be missed greatly.
