Goodbye, Poofy

Poofy, our last hamster, passed away this afternoon. Mom found him motionless outside his toilet. His 2 siblings, Peanut and Pebble, left us last year. For the past few months, Poofy lost most of his fur and walk in an awkward manner but he would still grab bread, corn and beansprout from us.

I'm not sure if we will be keeping any more hamsters since we are already quite busy with the cats. The hamsters have given me good memories and through them, I have learnt to be a more responsible person and also start this journey of loving creatures great and small (except cockroaches and mosquitoes).

I am sorry to hear about Poofy. I hope you can find more joys in animals big and small XD (though you had already have!)

Sorry to hear it. Hamsters are special. Too bad sometimes they r discounted jus cos they r a pocket pet.

My last hamster PatPat also passed away recently... And I'm also not keeping hamsters anymore in the near future... hope you're not too sad by the demise of Poofy.
