Hamster is sick

As well as everything involving my son lately, I’ve realised my poor hamster Pumpkin is sick. I’m taking him to the vet later but I’m not sure they will be able to do anything for him.

I’m starting to think I won’t get anymore animals as the pain they cause when they die is too much for me to bear.

My dog is 12 and a half and I truly dread the day she goes.

I know it’s the cycle of life and it’s never ending but the attachment one forms to these little creatures is enough to break your heart when you can’t see or hold them anymore.

And it never gets easier. It hurts just as much with one creature as any.

I entrust my beautiful hamster’s spirit back into the comforting arms of God if it is his time. And I entrust my grief as the outpouring of love gifted by his presence.

  1. I’m so sorry to hear about your hamster being unwell. When it comes to pets dying, grief is grief, whether the pet was a dog, cat, hamster, or anything else. When my son was young I knew he needed a furry pet, and because I didn’t have the energy to take care of a dog, and my husband is allergic to cats, we got a cute little guinea pig. Several years and 3 guinea pigs later we are down to fish for now. Each pet’s passing was hard.


    • Thank you. Pumpkin was put to sleep earlier bless him. He was very sick and it was the right decision but it’s never easy. I’ve had guinea pigs too and loved every one. It was so hard letting each one go and it gets too much after a while. I still have another hamster Rainbow but not sure if I will get another once she has gone x
