...Another One Bites the Dust...

Daughter leaves the room to take a shower. She comes back, so overcome with emotion that she doesn't realize she's stark naked, and says:

'Well, you got your wish. Clover's dead. Happy Birthday, Mom'


It was no secret that I openly loathed the rodent. I hated how she smelled, how she did her business in her wheel [leaving it in a constant state of wet], and most of all, I hated how she stayed up all night long, trying to escape from her cage, waking me up in the process...every. hour.

So now, the Lopez *fam* lives in a stink-free, pet-free home and it's lovely. We were clearly not meant to have hamsters as [you will remember] three died in less than a month and a half. First Hammy, then Rosalina and now Clover. That has certainly got to be a record of sorts!

R.I.P. Clover, you little stinky critter.

I imagined this story was going to have an April Fool's Day punchline. Are you sure the pet is really dead? Maybe you've buried it alive.

The Hamster had better be dead. I don't want it to go all 'Pet Cemetary' on us...

I too had a hamster called Hammy. I forget how it died but I do wonder if anyone's ever had a rodent that died of old age... I doubt it.
