One of my first blogs was about our family pets – at the time a cat, two hamsters, and some goldfish. Unfortunately some time ago we lost Viv the hamster. She has been replaced by Nancy (who it appears is actually a Sid!).
Tonight Steve the hamster who belongs to my son has left the family. He has been with us for over two and a half years, which is good by hamster standards. He was a very chilled out and sometimes perhaps a bit fat hamster who will be missed.
He passed away in the way he lived life, in a relaxed and chilled way, in his sleep.
Rest in peace Steve.
