:cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: We have some very sad news. This morning we lost our beloved hamster Bailey. She was a beautiful cinnamon satin girl. For the past couple of days she had been a little off colour, and last night she suddenly took a turn for the worst. We rushed her to the vet, but unfortunately she had an infection of the womb, and there was nothing they could do. We knew that the time had come to say goodbye, and gave her peaceful rest. We have so many wonderful memories of our little lady.
You were a wonderful hamster, so caring and patient with your babies. You were so gentle and calm, always alert and sitting up with your head tilted to one side. You made us so proud when you won your Best in Show Junior, and the excitement when you had your babies was one of the best things in our lives.
Thank you so much for being such a wonderful hamster. Your memories will live on in our hearts and in your children. You will never be forgotten, Bailey, R.I.P little one, and play happily at the Bridge with all your friends. :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry:

Here is a poem I wrote for her.

17th August 2005 - 5th August 2007

Cinnamon satin, shimmering coat,
Bailey why did you have to go?
Your time had come, the end was near,
We had to say goodbye my dear,

A prouder mother there never was,
Than you, Bailey, for all because,
You patiently cared for your wriggling pups,
You saw them through the downs and the ups.

Always alert, your sparkling bloom,
Would brighten up the hamster room,
Best in Show Junior, you made me so proud,
I wanted to run and shout aloud.

Always patient, placid, calm,
The perfect, cuddly, loving ham,
But then I knew you had to go,
A pain inside it hurt you so,

And now you’ve gone, we’re at the end,
It’s time to say goodbye, my friend,
But still we’ll never be apart,
You’ll always live on in my heart.


These are a few of my favourite pictures of her.









Sleep well little one, we will always love you

From Pophammy, BigD, Souffle, Nelson, Paws, Red, Sonni, Bubbles, Muffy, Cinders, Tofu, Speedy, Kennedy, Cidie, Bodie and George

I am so sorry Pophammy and Souffle :(

I know how much you love your hamsters and how much Bailey will be missed by you both. I also know that she had a fantastic life with you and couldn't have been happier with anyone else.

RIP Bailey :(
