Robbie was found motionless during dinner time just now. :( He has passed away possibly today or so. It wasn't quite a shocker to us though because he was really getting thinner and his age could be seen very obviously. His fur and weight has dropped tremendously and his tiny legs were stick-like. However, he was of most active and a hungry hamster until we last saw him yesterday.
These are a few shot of Robbie before he started balding.
RIP Robbie aka Lob! He was the oldest hammie in the Hamsty family amid the new generation. We bought him around Sept 2007 and he lived with some of the descendents of Chiko/Naughty. This would have made him 2years old now. Goodbye my active/ego robo. :(
