In Dedication To The Lost Baby Hamsters

It has been a sad time. Over the past few weeks a blogging friend of mine lost 13 baby hamsters due to liver disease. It was really hard for her and she has been so so strong.

Baby Jeeves and Monty, the last babies R.I.P

I wanted to do something to commemorate them, so decided to make a little hamster! This hamster represents all of them, so instead of choosing one of the names given to the babies I have decided to name him ‘Hammy’.
I decided it would be nice to include my pet mice in the picture playing with hammy :) I haven’t had chance to introduce my lovely mice to my blog yet, so this is also their introduction post!

Meet Hammy, Strawberry and Chocolate! Strawberry is the grey mouse and chocolate is the brown one :) They are both female, and are around 1 year old. Strawberry was originally white and cream, but around Christmas she began turning grey. We were really worried when the first grey patch appeared, but it turned out she was just changing colour! There was nothing online about it though, so it can’t be very common. Some time soon I will post a picture of when she was a baby so you can see the difference!

They we’re both so excited to meet Hammy, it was hard to get a picture of them sitting still! That’s where the treat of  Bran Flake’s came in – They loved them!

If you want to pay your respects to the lost little babies and have a look at the gorgeous real hamsters Eve and Dexter instead of looking at my crochet one, go to the lovely Hamster Diaries blog.

As I had this post to share I will be doing my Etsy Finds tomorrow instead of today like usual, so come back tomorrow to check out the lovely finds :)

Thank you for visiting today
