R.I.P. Whit

Whit had become swollen around the stomach and bony elsewhere. We found he had started to have diarrhea on Friday morning. Friday afternoon we took him to the vet, and he was found to have a massive lump that would have killed him slowly and painfully. We had to have him euthanised.

He had a full military funeral yesterday. He was an excellent Morale Officer / Hostage Negotiator, and everyone loved him. We'll miss him. A lot.

I found these pictures of a jaunt outside he had a couple of weeks ago. I thought I'd post them.

At least you gave him a comfortable, happy life.

And good grief, but he was a fuzzy thing!

*hugs* to both you and Matt. And the photo of Whit on the grass reminds me of some finger puppets I did years ago...

Whit was a fantastic little hamster. I'll miss him.
