We lost the little furry member of our family on Sunday unexpectedly and are coping with the loss. So amazing how such a little creature can be such a big part of your family. You see, my husband is allergic to most furry creatures. As a result, we have hamsters. Brown mouse was the 4th in a series of hamsters and likely the last. We got Brown mouse two years ago and he lived a royally spoiled life. Waited on hand and foot, rewarded with treats like pumpkin seeds, watermelon and his pick of veggies. His name was meant to be temporary until we thought of something better. The name stuck.
He was such a good pet, very easy going and liked to snuggle (very unusual for hamsters).
He had a thing for snuggling with remote controls too.
I am crushed, he was a great pet. He was fine one minute, eating, sleeping, all bodily functions working, the next he was gone, hopefully peacefully in his sleep. Fortunately, we believe he did not suffer. RIP little buddy.
