Has taken a few days to be able to post this tribute. Lola passed away in the early hours of Saturday morning asleep on a snuggle safe with her favourite person in the world next to her (her Daddy). We knew this was coming but it was still a shock. She had cysts on her eyelid which were untreatable and over time she got skinnier and lost a lot of her fur. She still had loads of energy though and loved climbing her bars and running in her wheel.

She was such a character and had a really special relationship with Ross. For some reason whenever a hand went in her cage she would attach her teeth :)) but she never ever did this with him. It was really funny though as she could get from the top of her 3 storey Imac Fantasy cage to the bottom in a split second and if you were putting food in you had to move your hand sharpish.

Once out of her cage though she was the sweetest hamster you could hope for. When she was running about lose in the hall she would climb onto my lap for cuddles and when in her ball and would spend ages pulling my pyjama bottoms into her ball and shredding them. I only have one pair of pyjamas that have not been Lolafied :)).

We will always love you little Lola, make sure you are keeping little Pip and George company up there and boys, remember she's the bitey one so watch your noses.

Has been a horrible year so far as she's the 4th animal we have lost since New Year. Just hope the year gets a bit better from now on.

Such a cutie, a lovely tribute to her. I am really sorry for your loss, you've had a hard time of late with losing so many in such a short space of time. I really hope things pick up for you.

RIP Lola

Thanks everyone.

It gets worse, tonight our little Daisy Duke is not well. We think she's bunged up and windy :( The vet won't see her though and has said to just give her some baytril we already had at home.
