    Unhappy -She's Gone- I'm going to miss her

    Well, I looked in on my hamsters after I put my birds to bed for the night and discovered something very heartbreaking. My hamster Milla is very weak. I think she will pass on over night. I put her in some nice soft, fresh bedding and left after shedding a few tears. I know she won't make it, no matter what I do. I tried feeding her and giving her some water but she won't take it. She's so frail...... I feel totally aweful! But I remember seeing another one of my hamsters, Shimbo, go through this same thing the night he passed away. I'm just going through a very rough patch in my life right now, so much drama happening around me, this just adds to how crappy my life is.

    Heaven will have a new angel shortly... An angel in the form of a small, lovable rodent.



    I just hope I did what was best for her through her 4 years of life and she was happy... I wish I would have bought her a bigger cage when I had the chance, let her out in her ball more often, and given her more treats than I had. I hope she will not be in pain in her last hours.

    Please do me a favor? Pray for her comfort and a safe journey into heaven.

    I'm sorry to hear about Milla but on the plus side, 4 years! Wow, that would be a great, long and fulfilling life for any hamster! I am glad that you will be able to say bye and her death will not come as a surprise. Sometimes allowing them to go is the best thing when they get to that stage. I hope she passes peacefully and that you have many memories and photos to keep her spirit alive.

    its hard ,,no matter what animal is in our care..to lose them is a heavy thing to get thru
    especially when other things arent going well

    this will pass and the sun will shine again for u ..its just the way of life isnt it

    ur sadness is a tribute to her..many pets have noone that really cares about them

    Sorry for your loss.
    At 4 years old it sounds like she had a very long and happy life.

    Re: I'm going to miss her

    Thank you everyone. It makes me feel a little better knowing that there are some who can sympathize with me. My mom was great and called me up several times today to see how I was handling things. Amazingly, Milla has made it through another day, and she managed to finally eat and take water. But sadly, her condition seems to have gotten worse. She won't let me pick her up to whipe her eyes, she can't see and her breathing is labored. Is there anything I can do for her to keep her comfortable? I wonder if theres a room in the house that might be warmer than the rest, would it be a good idea to put her there? How about more bedding? I would try a heating pad under the cage, but I don't have one... Light? Dark? I don't know.

    Now that I look back on it, 4 years is pretty long for a hamster. Its a comforting thought knowing that she must have been healthy and happy to have lived that long. I just wish I had have done more in the time I did have her.

    I'm sorry for your loss. I just lost my hammy a couple months ago and it was very hard for me. She lived a very long life and i'm sure she was happy.

    Ksandra, any update? Best thing you can do is keep her warm and dry. Keep three sides of the cage covered so she can get plenty of rest. Please let us know how she is doing.

    Re: -She's Gone- I'm going to miss her

    Well... I was able to say my last good bye's to my little Milla-bear. I had her cradled in a cloth, trying to nurse her some water. When she refused to take it, I just held her for a while and she quietly passed on. It was almost as if--- okay this is going to sound crazy--- as if she was waiting for me to cradle her and tell her everything would be okay. I was able to tell her that I loved her very much, kiss her on the head before she passed away. Im so sad right now. I still feel so guilty- as if I hadn't done enough for her. I'm going to bury her tomorrow- even if the ground is half frozen (which it is right now) I'm determined to lay her to rest. Thank you everyone for your support through this difficult time. I really really appreciate it.

    Try not to be so hard on yourself..Milla had a healthy, happy and long life, and you were there to say good bye with love. She was a very lucky hamster, and although you will miss her, rest assured that you gave her lots of love. I'm sorry for your pain, but I am glad you were there to cuddle her when she needed it most.
