Sad day yesterday, hamster-wise.

It was a sad day yesterday. My poor little hamster finally passed away. It was becoming increasingly clear over the last week that he wasn't going to last much longer, and he was approaching the upper limit of a hamster's life expectancy, so I was preparing for it a little.

His name was '40 oz. Gangsta,' and you'd better not look 'em in the eye cuz he'll cut yo ass, foo.

Actually he was the most gentle creature on earth, and he never tried to bite anyone, and never even tried to avoid people like most hamsters do. He was formerly an experimental animal (shhhh) that I 'procured' from the place I used to work, so I guess you could say he was lucky to have me too.

So, if you don't mind, pour one out for my homey.

awwww that's sad. I used to have a hamster- his name was Marvin K. Mooney....40oz Gansta is a much cooler name.

Thanks for the sympathy.
He would have liked you all.
