PostSubject: Arnie the hamster died :(   Sat 27 Apr 2013, 11:23 am

On Thursday evening I came home to a horrible sight. I'd come home late from work, (about 12:00am) and went in to check on my hamster. My heart dropped when I realised the cage door was open and I remembered I had probably forgot to close it when I fed and changed his water that morning.

I prayed he would be in his bed but I knew he wouldn't be because his food had been eaten. I immediately panicked, because ovbiously we have a dog... so I thought the worst. I checked around the room we keep him in first praying he was there, under the bed or something but he wasn't. I began searching the rest of the flat and found him quickly, by the front door, dead.

Rosie hadn't gotten to him thank God, but, and I don't really know what's worse, I think he had been stepped on when Sacha opened the door to let me in from work.

I'm really devastated. The way he died is just playing on my mind. I can only pray it was quick and he had the time of his life exploring for (what I believe to be a short time) the time he had out of the cage. I keep thinking, what if I'd had my key, then when I opened the door maybe I would have seen him first and grabbed him, or if the door to the spare room closed properly he would have been safe.

I'm so sorry, Arnie.








(As you can see from this picture, Arnie had survived his bottom lip being bitten by Rosie. He had been biting the bars and Rosie got to close. Vet said he had a 50/50 chance, but with TLC from me and his own tenacity he continued to thrive)
