RIP Little Hamster Dudes

I know I said I was going away to work on my project due Friday, but I am really sad right now.

A little while ago my hubby found one of the Robo boys caught on their water bottle in the 3 boy cage. He died with his teeth caught on the metal piece that slips over the plastic tube at the bottom of their water bottle, apparently he had some really ginormous teeth on him. As a result of that hammy dying, the two boys left couldn't access the water bottle and while one of the boys in the cage is a ginormous fat robo, the other boy left was the runt. I think he probably died of thirst because he was tinier and couldn't sustain himself as long.

I feel so bad, these two little guys suffering so. Hubby buried them behind the shed where Hammy and Rocket are buried. Hopefully Hammy and Rocket will take care of the little boys.

I always toss the little wood blocks in the cages for the hamhams to gnaw on but apparently hubby wasn't as diligent so the teeth overgrew. Argh.

Poor babies. Rest in peace. I'm so sorry. :'(

I'm so sorry to hear this. It's so very sad. I had a hamster before (long time ago) and couldn't bear to have another after learning of their short life span.
