Default Re: Forgive me, my sweet Prince Lemon

I totally understand the anguish of losing one that is so deeply loved, especially when they pass so unexpectedly and suddenly. I am so, SO sorry that you are going through all of this pain and heartbreak, Burakki. Although hamsters are so tiny, they fill our hearts with so much love and change our lives forever. Sadly, some people do not understand the magnitude of love we have for our little, furry family and believe that they are replaceable, but your strong feelings of love and loss are shared by us all here. I am sorry that some people aren't more comforting or compassionate, but maybe they just were not as fortunate to know the power of a hamster's love. We are here for you. I feel for you and send you lots and lots of hugs. I hope with all of my heart that you will find peace that you gave Prince Lemon the greatest life possible and he was so happy and loved. Hopefully, one day in the future some of your sorrow will turn into smiles as you think of your darling Prince Lemon. He really loved you and would want memories of him to bring you joy.

I think his final resting place sounds absolutely lovely. He would have loved the beauty of a lilac tree, being surrounded by vibrant dandelions, and having you stroll by him in the park everyday. He probably also would have thought it quite amusing that he is inside a lemon soap container, too - I could just imagine the sweetest glint in his eye at that. I'm glad that you found the perfect place to feel closer to him even though you will always keep him in your heart. Please take care of yourself and try to get some rest whenever possible. Take thinks one day at a time and know that we are here for you always. Hugs to you and cuddles to Marti and your chinchilla. Eros sends plenty of whisker kisses to all.

Burakki, I too hate it when someone says "buy another one".
Prince Lemon's resting place sounds so beautiful.
This forum, has been wonderful for me over the years, knowing that others understand your feelings and know the right thing to say when going through a sad time. Hugs xxx

Oh no Burakki, I was shocked when I saw the title of your thread but somehow it didn't register with me that he could be gone until I actually read your post.

How heartbreaking for you, he was a very adorable and very fluffy young man. As other have said please don't blame yourself. He had a lovely life with you and I am sure he was grateful that you were there to hold him at the end.

Sending you hugs x

Have fun at the bridge Prince Lemon x

BubbyandHamper, If you want to see more of Prince Lemon, you can find his thread on the second page of Syrian hamster section. There are only six pages, but it's more than this.

dreamtree, since I got my Marti, I can't stop being amazing at how amazing there little creatures are. Despite being so small, they have so much to offer. Talking honestly, I even think that in some ways they are better than cats or dogs, especially when you're too busy to walk a dog or play with the cat. And especially when your mom can't stand fur on our furniture. Hammies are just amazing partners. They are there when you need them, they stay up with you all night, they are always open to something new and are just so curious. You can never grow tired of them. At the same time, if you just don't have time for them at the moment, they can busy themselves at their cages and you don't worry, that they'll destroy your sofa or start howling. I just feel so sorry for people who don't give their hamsters a possibility to shine by limiting them to tiny cages and never playing with them, seeing them only as living toys for their kids. I wish pet stores were more careful with who they sell pets to and which conditions for them they recommend. It just breaks my heart that so many hammies die everyday due to poor care and the owners just throw them away and get another one, who will probably end in the same way. Hamsters deserve better. All pets deserve better.

Lizzy, these people just don't understand a connection you can have with a hammy. They are wonderful creatures. This forum is so amazing, it's so amazing that you can get support here in something that other people just deem stupid. Really, the girls I considered close friends didn't even react to my message about how I buried him. That's so sad, and makes me grateful for this site.

BP, thank you very much for the support. I still sometimes think that it is just a bad dream, but then I enter the room and see the empty cage... I hope he didn't hold any grudge against me, and that he is running to his little heart's content up there in the rainbow wheel.

It is really disheartening and sad that your close friends didn't respond to your message about the resting place of Prince Lemon. Some people have difficulties when it comes to knowing what to say or do concerning death, but they could at least give you a hug or let you know that they are there for you in your time of sorrow. Hopefully, they will realize that your heart is breaking over the loss of your beloved little one and find a way to give you comfort and be there for you. I will definitely be wishing that they do. Hugs to you and please know that we are all here for you.

I agree completely with what dreamtree said, it's very sad that your close friends haven't been there to support you

I really hope that they will let you know that they are there for you and if not you've always got us.

I'm positive that your lovely fluffy boy won't be holding a grudge Burakki. I'm sure he'll be meeting up with friends old and new and I expect my boys will be busy admiring his gorgeous fur xx

I am so sorry for your loss.
There was nothing you could have done - it was his time to be called. He went surrounded by your love.
Run free at the bridge Prince Lemon x

I am so very sorry and shocked to see this thread! It is so hard losing a hamster very suddenly and at a young age so my condolences go out to you. Take comfort in knowing that you provided Lemon with a such amazing loving home where he was spoilt and treated like true prince. Play well at the bridge Lemon.

dreamtree, BP, it means so much that I can share this with you all. My friend told me that she was unsure how I'd react to her messages and decided that it's better not to bother me with constant messages and wait for me to contact her in case I needed her support. We haven't been friends for very long, so I guess I'll let it slide that she didn't know the best way to support me. The other two are not that close to me, so I guess they just didn't feel the need to.

BP, I imagine your boys touching Lemon's furry coat with amazed faces and him looking very proud of it, and it makes me smile. Thank you for this image!

souffle, thank you. It helps to know that I did everything I could, and I'm happy he wasn't alone during his last minutes...

SKB, I sure hope he felt like royalty during his short life. Thank you for the condolences. It's still hard to realise that he's not with me anymore, but I hope he's having fun up there on the rainbow bridge.

I'm so pleased that your friend reached out to you now and told you why she didn't contact you sooner. It is important that you are surrounded by lots of people who are supporting and comforting you during this time. Take care of yourself and always know that you have all of us here for you, too.
