My Hamster Died
Today is a sad day for me as my hamster Minni has passed away. I came home from work this evening and found her cold and unresponsive in her nest. Usually, she wakes up at the slightest sound of me in the vicinity in the hope of a treat, but sadly tonight that wasn’t to be.
It appears that she passed away peacefully in her sleep as she was curled up with her eyes closed inside her nest, she looked exceptionally cosy – I guess it’s the best way she could have gone.
Minni was the first hamster that I raised in my own home since getting my own place, she was sweet and inquisitive but wouldn’t stand for any nonsense – if she didn’t want to play she would let you know with a gentle nip. I guess that’s why I didn’t give her as much attention as perhaps I should have done. That said, she would always come down from her nest to say hello whenever I was near (probably more for a treat than for the conversation, but considering the circumstances, I’ll let that slide).
She has left behind Maxx, her long time friend, ball running partner and next door neighbour who seems very melancholy since she passed away, who knows, maybe hamsters grieve too.
Rest in peace Minni.
