||Deceased, two years old|
got Skitty one year as a Christmas present from my parents. I had wanted a
hamster ever since my sister got a hamster. I was so happy to finally have my
own pet. Skitty was a little nervous when I first got him so he got the name
Skitty because he was so skittish. Once he got over his initial nervousness,
though he became a great hamster! I learned a lot with Skitty, like not using
pine shavings and that hamsters need a bigger home than pet store hamster
Skitty was very special to me because he would cuddle with me when I was sad
and he would always do something silly to make me smile. My sister and I don't
always get along but she helped me learn about hamsters and how to care for
them, so through our hamsters we became closer friends. Even today our pets
keep us closer. Skitty passed away a couple of years later, sadly. I was
crushed when he died, but now I know that his age no longer hurts him and that
he is in a better place.
