Rest in peace, Flint the hamster ♥

Post by AnonymousMouseOwner on Tue 05 Dec 2017, 11:10 pm

Yesterday evening, Flint passed away in his sleep peacefully curled up in his nest.

I didn't know him long, but it sure seems like I did. He taught me that dwarf hamsters aren't all aggressive, if you give them time and love, and be patient and gentle, they will be very sweet and gentle creatures. I used to have a small fear of dwarf hamsters until I met Flint, he changed the way I think of them.

He nipped a little at first, but he was always gentle doing it. He never did it hard, he was just testing out of curiosity. He learned though, and became as gentle as could be. He'd hop right on my hand and wait for me to take him somewhere fun. Love

He loved treats. At the moment he saw a treat in my hand, he'd rush over and grab it.

He was goofy too, he was always falling off of his hidey house, running around like a crazy little thing, and scratching at the glass for my attention.

He had a rough start, he was purchased from Petco and returned, then deemed "aggressive" and moved to the back room. That is until I saw him, and couldn't say no. I had to bring him home, and I am so glad I did. His life might've been short, but at least he got to feel loved and be happy. He was the sweetest little dwarf I could've asked for, and I am so grateful I was able to make him happy while he was here.

Goodbye, sweet Flint. Have fun over the rainbow bridge Rainbow Angel

I'm so sorry. Sad He was super cute. With him being a return and then adopted, could he have been older than you thought? It sounds like he passed peacefully. hugs

I'm so sorry kiddo. You gave him an amazing life. He was a happy little guy and was lucky to have found you.

It's possible, but he really didn't behave or look like an elderly hamster. He was extremely energetic and never stopped moving, he was bright eyed and young looking too. Thank you Callalily.

Awww, I'm so very sorry to hear of Flint's passing. He was so lucky to have you! He passed knowing he was finally loved. The last 30 days of his life were the best 30 days of his life thanks to you. Love (((Hugs)))

Thank you everyone for your kind messages ♥️

I finally finished his memorial video. It took me a while to be in the mood to make it, and even making it now was hard Sad
