    Tonight is probably going to be Ralphies (my hamster) last night with us :( He's coming up to (if not already) 3 years old and has been aging rapidly the last few months. The last few days he's been falling asleep in odd places and generally very frail :(
    Tonight he's too weak to make it to his food and water unassisted so he's wrapped in a blanket next to me and I'm hand feeding him ready brek and giving him drops of water. He'll stay next to me for the rest of the night now.
    The comforting thing is that he's had a long life, he's not in any pain and it appears he's going to pass peacefully in his sleep just as little old men should do.

    Safe journey to the bridge vibes would be much appreciated if anyone has any going spare :(

    Aw he is lovely. I am sorry it seems he is fading. I have had a few Hamsters but they live such a short time and it is to upsetting. Will be thinking of you both tonight. All the best.
