Lolly passed away last night.
She was a great hamster who I will never forget and who I miss so much already.
She was getting ill, (which is why I haven't been blogging as much), and I came back from a week long trip to find her even sicker. (she was being looked after by my parents)
I had a few days with her until last night she passed away.
She was with me when she suffered a stroke. She lost the use of her legs and body and started having difficulty breathing.
It all happened very quickly. The stroke happened and she died 5 minutes later.
She died in her little bed which I won from Inky's giveaway, made by friends4fuzzies. She had only had it for about a week, but already loved it.
She looked so peaceful when she died, and I knew she had had a wonderful life and was now out of her short burst of pain from the stroke.
I took this photo the day before she died. She seemed old but not at all in pain then.
Although I have had hamsters before, I think I had forgotten the pain you go through when they pass away. There is an empty space where her cage should be, and an empty space in my life where I should be playing with her or cleaning her out.
I know the pain will clear, but for now I miss her and can't seem to get over that she's gone.
Thank you to Inky and friends4fuzzies for the bed; I think it really cheered Lolly up before she left us.
♥ Rest In Peace Lolly ♥
