'My Sweet Hamster Angel'

by Benji

I'm so sorry we had to part this way, Buttercup. I thought we'd have at least another year to enjoy together. You were ten months, just two months shy of a year. I guess that's average - for some hamsters. But the way you left just wasn't fair.

I keep going over it in my head, wondering what I could have done better. I'm completely distraught. It should not have happened this way. I know I did everything that I could, but I still feel so guilty. I keep seeing you the way you were right before you left. I'm not sure I will ever get that image out of my head. I loved you so much.

I know there are some people that will tell me that you were just a hamster, but those people aren't worth my time. You weren't just an anything. You were a companion, a pet, a living, breathing, creature. I'm so sorry you had to leave the world the way you did. I only hope that I made your departure as comfortable as possible.

I love you, Buttercup. Your time with me was too short, even for a hamster.
