Bye Bye Fabian Boy

It was very sudden. I just was wondering why Fabian was running the wheel in broad daylights. He seldom ran the wheels since he was getting on with age. So I took his cage to disturb him. Suddenly Fabian went into fits and bite the grill real hard before falling off onto the beddings motionless. For 1 1/2 hour he laid there breathing slowly. Then suddenly started struggling hard after 1/2 hour and the final hour, he started gasping for air. At 4pm today, his little heart stopped beating and his breathing ceased.

"Fabian at his final moments"


It is always painful to watch the whole ordeal of the hamster's final hour. Having seen so many departures of my hamsters, it is still very difficult to accept. It seems like the moment they stop breathing, their whole life flashes by and you started wondering why can't they live longer. It is even more difficult when they are with you since birth, as we practically watch them grow up.

Bye bye my Fabian boy. RIP.
