Default Rest in Peace my little Charlie

Charlie has gone to the rainbow bridge this afternoon after some long nights of semi consciousness and coming round. I thought he was suffering by last night and we took him to the vets today. I feel quite traumatised by taking him to the vets, but maybe that is just me - it seemed very clinical. I took him curled up in his blanket and I think he was unconscious.

We will be having a little burial and funeral and planting some snowdrops.

Serendipity I am so heartbroken to hear about the loss of Charlie.

He truly was an amazing hamster, he filled all of us with joy and happiness and gave us all laughs and entertainment! He was a very handsome boy too, with those gorgeous eyes and beautiful coat! Please, please remember the good times and the wonderful memories you have with him. He will be loved, missed, but never ever forgotten.

Stay strong during this difficult time. If you need anything at all don't hesitate to message me!

Lots of love xx

So sorry Serendipity, what a loss. Hope you are ok. You did the right thing. Charlie isn't suffering anymore. Take comfort in that. A funeral for him is sweet & very sad I'm sure. Run free Charlie at the bridge.

Oh Serendipity I am so sorry, it's heartbreaking. I hope you can take comfort in knowing that you did everything you could for Charlie and I'm sure he knows that too and how much you loved him. I'm sorry it was such an unpleasant experience for you at the vets, that must have made it worse than it needed to be

Charlie was one of the first hamsters I read about when I started looking in to getting mine and he was such a special boy and so full of character.

I'm struggling to know what else to say as it's just so sad, so I'll send you some big hugs instead xx

Play well at the bridge Charlie xx

I'm so sorry for your loss Serendipity - it's always hard to lose a much loved pet like Charlie. It looks like he had a wonderful life with you, and he was clearly well cared for. While hamster lives may be short, Charlie's was full of fun, playtime and food - you've done everything you possibly can for him, including giving him the chance to slip away peacefully and pain free.

RIP Charlie :'(

Goodbye to Charlie. What a sad thing to say. If this news has upset me then I cannot imagine how hard it is for you Serendipity. Charlie was such a favourite here on HC. He had an influence on others here over a fantastic distance. I loved hearing about his doings, watched every video and adored his photos. Such a character our grumpy old ham.
You gave him a loving and fulfilling life. You stayed close by as he declined in recent days and did absolutely everything possible to help him. You should have no regret about going to the vet. Ignore and forget that attitude. Focus on the good memories. There are plenty. Have you ever taken in the length of his thread? The numbers of replies and those who read it? Truly astonishing.
Bless you Charlie. Play well over that rainbow bridge restored to full health. Meet Mocho when it is his turn and play with him then.
Hugs for you Serendipity. X
