Default You will never be forgotten Admiral

Our beloved little boy Admiral Lord Nelson, Duke of Agincourt and of Normandy, Earl of the Somme, Earl of Ypres, 1st Viscount Waterloo, Constable of Hougoumont, passed awat this morning around 10AM.

We weren't sure of his age, but he was an elderly boy and when we were lucky enough to cross paths with him and bring him to stay with us, he was already not young and had suffered the loss of an eye as a result of a cat and had been abandoned by his previous owners. That was on December 4th, 2018.

He was the most lovable, noble, sweet-natured friend I have ever had and I will miss him very very much.

He came to us a frightened, nervous, thin and scruffy little fellow but over time he became much more confident, he filled out a bit and was the most trusting and outgoing little creature.

The last week, he began to show signs of slowing down drastically and by last night we knew that his time was near. I am so grateful that I had the chance to tell him that I love him and that he will never be forgotten before he passed away.

Rest in Peace Admiral. We love you so much .

So sorry to learn of your friend's passing but it must be comforting to know that he experienced love, friendship and happiness for almost a year which is a long time in a hamster life and wouldn't have happened without you but you will miss him.

I am so sorry for your loss. He was lucky he found you and had a safe loving home. They leave a big hole in our hearts but we always have room in our hearts for another one who needs a loving home. He is playing over the rainbow bridge now xxx

Thank you so much to everybody for the kind words.
I am missing him terribly. There is a horrible empy space where his cage used to be and I often catch myself thinking I'll go through and check on him only to remember that he is no longer there.

We have two other very special little dwarf hamsters but I had a really soft spot for the Admiral.
