Death in the family

I received a frantic call today from Lily around 3:30ish.

She couldn't find her hamster. I was confident it was somewhere in the house, but I didn't know where. It had gotten out of it's cage by chewing through some duct tape that Ian had put on a hole. Hamsters can escape from *anything* ... duct tape might as well be cobwebs.

After searching the house, Lily found the hamster in the kitty dungeon. 'Hamstey' was found in the kitty house-carpet thingie. It wasn't eaten. My guess is Kitty somehow broke it's neck or something because if Sammy or Kisper found it first, it would be kitty poop by now.

Poor Lily.

When I finally got home she had take photos of Hamstey and created this tribute video.

RIP Hamstey.

WHOA, I am shocked that she took care of business herself! I am a grown woman and there is NO way I would handle the dead rodent! unless of course if I had one of those squeezy arm grabber know what I mean right LOL.

Poor hamstey!

My hubby wishes we could get rid of our gerbils, perhaps we should borrow kitty for a day. j/k Aiden would be so sad :(

Ohh, how sad. Tell Lilly I feel for her. I had a hamster once, it got a weird neck growth and it decided to eat it. My dad put it to sleep on the exhaust pipe of the car, on Thanksgiving of all days. At least there are Zhu Zhu pets, right?

Oh man, that's a sad video, especially when she says, "I don't think I'll ever be happy again." That's so sad!
