Where do I start? I miss Omelette.. she left 2 Fridays back.. suddenly the room feels empty without her. Even till last night, I still find myself entering my room quietly and fighting the urge to turn on the light, just so I won’t wake her.. but only to realize that the place which was once her nest, is now just an empty shelf.. I miss you Omelette.

U’re the one who’s always with the grub.. if I can’t find u, I know u’re hiding comfortably in ur nest, snoozing away and playing in hamster-lalaLand.. If I do hear u scruffling about in the middle of the night while I’m at my computer, then I’ll know that u’re sitting comfortably in ur food tray, enjoying that midnight snack while the rest of the world slumbers away..

As I was searching for a picture of u to put up here, I came across the whole load of pictures that I’ve taken since Day One. I see how u’ve really grown, from that tiny little furball that u were when beepo first brought u back, till how u were just before u crossed the rainbow bridge. U’ve changed, and yet u’ve stayed the same.

Sure, u definitely looked older and more frail now.. not as jumpy and nibbly as u used to be.. but still, u’re still always around the food tray and ever-ready to take a quick nap.. As if u could sense it, (or my sense of sound-discipline is THAT bad) u still pop ur head out when I return from work and greet me with that half-awake look, just as u always did in the past. Though sometimes I don’t get to see u much, I can never bear to wake u and shake ur nest just to wake u up, so I could see u.. though I was really tempted on more than a few occasions.. U lived the Hamster Life every hamster dreamt of, and yet, I still feel I could have given u more.

Both u and ur sister have shown me what it meant to have a life placed under my care.. and there’s no other lesson in this world that could have taught me better than how the both of u did.. I will miss u sorely.. and u will always have a little corner in my heart..

Send my dearest regards to Hamlette.
