Default My Little Roborovski Died

My little Roborovski, Finnegan, died on Sunday. There was no indication he was ill or injured. He was active throughout his last night, running on his wheel. In his last week, I was excited that he suddenly started sitting in my hands. After his death, I checked him thoroughly and went through everything in his cage. There is nothing to indicate why he died. As far as I know, he was young...6-8 months old. I'm stuck in a loop, trying to figure out what happened to this adorable little guy.

Oh no! I am so sorry to hear this and can't even imagine how you must feel to loose your little guy so suddenly and without an obvious cause.

I'm so sorry for your loss.
Often we can never know the reason however with a younger hammy it is usually something they have been born with like a weak heart valve which suddenly gives out and they fly free very quickly.
Run free at the bridge Finnegan x

Thank you, Josie, and everyone for your posts. I appreciate it. Surprising how much we miss these little friends when they are gone, but on second thought, not surprising at all because they are such wonderful pets.

There's a Roborovski available for adoption at a local shelter now, but I'm not ready to replace Finnegan yet so I am waiting. Maybe I would be making room for another instead of replacing him because one hamster never replaces another...their personalities and temperaments are all unique.

In any case, thank you!

I'm trying to attach a picture of Finnegan on the day I brought him home. So far, it doesn't work. Do you see him?

That's a lovely pic. I've edited it to make it a little smaller (650 pixels wide is good) and to attach so it shows you need to click on the paper clip at the top of the post then click the image you want from the dropdown and it will show then.
