Goodbye Uncle Retardy

As some may know, our dearest Uncle Tardy passed on last week. Honestly I do not know which day. I went to co-owner's house for a day's stay to visit his mum's hamsters on Friday, and when I returned home on Saturday, Tardy was gone. :(




I looked at his lifeless body lying down as if he was sleeping. Ringo chan his neighbour, looked depressed. She sat quietly behind the bars where Tardy laid and for a long time, she ignored my calls. The whole cage was gloomy. The time finally came where the last of my Hamsty descendent passed on. Timid Tardy was 2 1/2 years old. He's really old but yet he pulled on. Checking his foodbowl next to his body, I noticed he ate up all the sunflower seeds before he left this world. Tardy, I hope you enjoy your stay with us. Do find your 2 naughty bros over at Sunflower Valley.

Dearly missed....

Aaaww. What a funny hamster.
He probably stuffed his cheeks with those sunflower seeds for his afterlife.

I'm so sorry.
I guess Tardy's life was very happy.
Now, Tardy's soul must be peaceful.

Rest in peace, retardy Timid. All the retardies hold a special place in my heart too. Glad he lived to a ripe, full age under your loving care, and had a full meal before he left. Hope Ringo chan is feeling better by now.

Ringo chan is a wealthy ham now. :D She inherited the whole cage! (I removed the separator) But a few weeks to it, she never stepped into Retardy's area. So last week, I purposely rearrange new toys and shifted her wheel to the other side. Now, she's moving. :p

Hamsty generation is officially over. :(
