E's hamster passed away in his sleep. I used to have a bunch of hamsters growing up and at one point I think we had over 100 with a family in the bathtub, another family in the shower and the rest in several large glass tanks. That's when my mom said we needed to get rid of some so we sold them to local pet shops. I never had a hamster live more than 18 months so I was really surprised when "Sam the Hamster" went past the 2 year mark. We got him full-grown and he ended up living over 2 years and 5 months! That has to be a record, don't you think?
Tonight it's cold and rainy and Sam and his cage disappeared to heaven during bedtime storytime. We'll miss you Sam!
