Default Good Night, Sweet Smokey Bear

It was so sudden, I am in tears.

Thank you, Smokey, for being in my life. I hope I gave you the best life, ever. I always scattered the food in your mansion with complete love. What a cute little guy you are.

Good night, sweet boy... <3

I wanted to thank you all for your support and understanding. This hit me quite hard. I couldn't bear to type this until now, but what was so painful was that he laid on his stomach for 3 days until he died. He didn't seem in pain, but he couldn't move (or was too weak to?). I tried to give him water, but he only took it on day two from my finger, he was so weak. I felt that he was dying, and I felt that it would only add stress and trauma to bring him to the vet to be put to sleep. I wanted him to be able to die in his wonderful home.
So, I watched over him, told him how wonderful he was, and made sure he had warmth. I was here when he passed. 24 hours later I buried him out in the Garden with my previous hamster, Laydee. At first I felt relieved that he was free. But then the pain set in- not so much the pain that he has died, but such aching in my chest that he laid there for 3 days, unable to move. I have cried and cried and can't get the image out of my head. The heartache in my chest has been so intense. But I know I made the right choice, to let Smokey die at home. It just hurts!
Thank you, again. <3

It's so horrible to see our furry little friends sick, and feeling so helpless. However, you stayed by his side all the while and I'm sure that's something he'll never forget. Remember back to all the good times you two had together and take comfort in knowing you gave him a good life. Play well at the bridge little smokey

Whiskee, you did what your heart told you, a vet visit would've been stressful, he died in his wonderful home with you by his side, you speaking too him will have been a huge comfort to him. I know you're hurting but, it will get easier in time. He was so loved by you and vice versa.
We've all gone through the motions of blaming ourselves but, please dont. You'll have loads of wonderful memories and pics. You'll have good days and bad days but please remember we're here for you. Big Hugs XXX
