So yesterday I decided to play with one of my hamsters that bit me every time i held him. He was running around my bed like normal and munching on food i layed out for him... hamster food. (he was a robo dwarf hamster).He seemed fine.
So I wake up today and check on them like I do every day and Stitch was "gone." Laying motionless in his cage with his cage mate next to him. I was and still am a bit depressed about his passing since I just played with him yesterday night.
Anyway as i go to take him out, i left him in the cage by the door to get a proper burial box thingy for him, and when i come back I see his cage mate trying to bring him back where they were sleeping. Awwww. Poor guy. I scooped Stitch (RIP) and buried him in the back yard under a tree.
Now there's only one robo hamster in the cage looking "lost." I feel bad for him. I'm not sure if I should get another hamster because I'm not sure how he will react with the new one...i'm not sure if I could bring him back to the store if he doesn't get along since I have only one cage.
People tell me to hang on a while before "replacing" the one, but I kind of feel bad for the one that is in there that got left behind to live by himself... the one that died was on the small side and the other one kind of climbed over him on a few occassions. But i'm not sure what happened over night.
