Unhappy Bilbo my baby

Today at 10:30 a.m. Bilbo had to be put down due to a few tumors around his neck, and the fact he was 4 years old which is very old for a Syrian Hamster, and he didn't seem to be enjoying life like he used to. Yet I still feel like I betrayed him by doing this, but deep inside I know I did the right thing. He went peacefully and without pain. The vet who helped him onto his path to the Rainbow bridge was the nicest person ever and I am very thankful for him, although I couldn't even say thank you today because I was crying to hard to even speak. I've been crying all day, and can't stop, but I don't hide my tears, this is my hearts way of showing how much little Bilbo meant to me. I will never be able to thank Bilbo enough for what he did for me, the little guy saved me, he kept me afloat and in good company for four years of my life, he got me through middle school, and freshman year of highschool, and even then some. I loved him so much. For years I dreamt of having a hamster, and Bilbo was truly every thing I dreamt of and more. I don't even know what to say really, just that I loved him. I loved him more than anything. I still do love him. And he lived very much up to his name, he never bit or acted anything but calm. He was indeed a little Bilbo Baggins, and he very much did live most of his days in his little Hobbit hole nest I built him. I miss him with the every beat of my heart. But I know true friends like we were cant break apart so easily. Any religion. Any philosophy. Any hopeful thought says we will be brought together again one day, and I will one day die in comfort knowing that I am closer to him. But for now I will live in comfort knowing animals (that includes humans) can be so kind, special, and comforting as himself. Rest in piece my little baby, my little hammy, my dearest friend, Bilbo the kindest hammy of them all.

Don't torture yourself. You took good care of Bilbo, his age was a living proof of it, and you did it till the end, because you put apart your feelings, and you did what was best for him. You didn't betrayed him, you show him your last act out of love.

I'm very sorry for your loss

I'm so sorry to hear about your wonderful boy, you did the right thing and I'm so glad you had a lovely vet.
So agree with Hamsterita that you having him put to sleep was out of love. I know how hard this is for you and we all know what you're going through. We all know how much you loved Bilbo and anyone reading your thread will see and feel that unconditional love and dedication. You gave him a wonderful 4 years and you should be proud of yourself.
Sending you big hugs xxx

What a beautiful tribute to your little friend, I'm so sorry for your loss. Bilbo sounds like a wonderful friend and being a four year old ham, he was well cared for to live as long as he did! Hamsters are such great friends, getting us through everything, and not judging us a bit along the way (minus when we didn't share a bit of fruit we were eating!) you were such a great owner to bilbo and he appreciates that, may he Rest In Peace, and may you look back upon all the good times you two had together

It's one of the hardest decisions a pet owner can make and also the one that shows how deeply we love them to end their suffering even though it hurts us. I'm sorry you lost your wonderful Bilbo, he was a lucky hamster to have you.

Ezio, I am truly sorry for your tremendous loss. I know that you may feel as though you betrayed Bilbo, but that is definitely not the case. You were loving him unconditionally and selflessly until the very end even though it gave you great pain to make such a painful decision. It is so evident in your loving tribute to honor him that he was extremely beloved to you. I know that no words can truly comfort you during this difficult time, but know that we are all here for you and want to help you through it. You are definitely in my thoughts and prayers, and I hope that one day you can think of him with only smiles and laughter for the wonderful years you shared together because that is what Bilbo would want for you. He wants for you to know that you were the very best to him and that he loved you with all of his heart. Remember that he is not truly gone because anyone who is loved as dearly as he was will forever live on in your heart and memories. I do believe that you will be reunited one day because a love like the one you both had for one another will ensure that this just couldn't be the end of the story. You will meet him again one day, and your love will guarantee that. Please find peace in your decision. Rest in peace, Bilbo.
