JJ died last night. He died peacefully, going from sleep to death. He had a full life as a hamster. I don’t know how old he was, but by all signs, he was geriatric. What I know of his life is he was found wandering the streets of Aspen, CO. Some bartenders found him and brought him inside, where a woman offered to take him home with her. He lived with her for 6 months, running around her high-end shower and hanging out by his coconut. When she couldn’t keep him anymore, I took him in and gave him a multi-pod, multi-level home. I had him for a year.

I’m just so damn heartbroken. This is one of the problems I have with these little guys. I get so attached to them and they don’t live long. I’m just...so sad.
