Some of you may remember that one of my syrian hamsters Alan was diagnosed with a tumour under his chin a few weeks back. He had started to slow down and we made sure everthing was on the same level for him but last night he got up to get food and his tumour had moved so far to the side that he couldn't walk. His eyes were also shut tight and he was very wobbly. We called the emergency vet who said to bring him in straight away. He was put to sleep at 10 o'clock and passed peacefully in my hands. We love you Alan and were so happy when we were asked to take you in. Have fun at the rainbow bridge with Poppy, Niblett and Harry until we meet again.

Thanks Rachel, I can't take the credit for the name unfortunately, his previous owners named him, they were students who watched Alan Partridge.

Maybe you can't take credit for his name but you can for looking after him and being there with him right to the end. I used to have a hamster, Mortimer, and he would always be flashing his (big) bits too! Great little characters.

Aww thanks, his previous owners didn't look after him at all, when we picked him up they hadn't changed his water for days and he was in the tiniest cage. It broke my heart driving home with him and he was istting by his rubbish wheel with his head stooped looking so depressed I nearly cried. We went straight to P@H and got him a bigger temporary cage until we ordered his hamster heaven a few days later.
