Tribute to my little Peanut

    Recently my little hamster Peanut died. He was taken from me way to soon. I was going to do the tribute after he died but didn't feel ready as it was too raw. Peanut was a poorly little man. It got way out of hand so I had to make that decision nobody ever wants to make and have Peanut put to sleep. I didn't get chance to take any pictures sadly. I have some lovely memories of me and him together. I loved him to bits. There is a story about how I got Peanut and I want to share it with you all along with my memories of him. I hadn't had him that long and he got very sick and was taken away from me. I miss him. I felt the best thing I cando now is do a tribute on here for him. He would want that. R.I.P. Peanut. I love you. I kept saying how I needed you Peanut but you needed me. You were my little man Peanut and I will always love you. Goodbye my dear little Peanut. Say hello to Toby for me at rainbow bridge. I hope I see him again because I love him so much.
    Danielle.

    I feel so guilty but I know it was best for him. I feel like I let Peanut down.

    You did what was right for Peanut, he isn't suffering or in pain now.
    RIP Peanut

    I let Peanut down and now he's gone. I loved him and miss him. Call me crazy but I need a friend, I'm serious. Without Peanut I'm nobody. He used to crawl up my sleeve and sleep there. I miss him doing that.

    Sorry for your loss Danielle, Peanut sounds like he was a lovely hammie and its unbelievably hard to have to make that horrible decision for someone you love, hope you find some way to feel better and when you feel ready maybe you could get another little hammie, not to replace Peanut but just to love.

    Hi there,

    I know exactly how you feel.

    I've had Syrian hamsters for 10 years now and when you lose one it does hurt, but trust me, you do get over it. Not straight away, but you do over time.

    I usually wait about 4 - 6 weeks before I get another one - I find that's enough time to get over the grieving process.

    Hope this helps.

    No worries. I have only just seen it. Why did they post that? Hopefully it should be deleted if Tashi or any of the other mods see it.

    If you look on page 2 on this thread, scroll down until you come to a page about pearls or something that has nothing to do with Peanut. Anotherfriend on here saw it and wasn't happy. You can't miss it. I've just seen it and found it rather hurtful. You'll see why when you see it. I miss my little Peanut.

    I saw it by accident when I was just checking on my thread. I think you were hopeing I wouldn't see it weren't you? What they posted I found very upsettig that they would post it on my tribute to Peanut, why did they do that?

    Awwww Danielle, i feel your pain i really do, i have a rough idea on your circumstances, could you not have another one or maybe 2 new little friends a bit later on????? Peanut would like you to do that i feel.

    Also your never alone huni, you have me you can talk to whenever you feel the need as you know, and im sure there are others on here too!

    Im seriously thinking of getting one you know, so if i do you could get another one and we could watch em grow together :smilewinkgrin:
