Hamsters can eat Hamsters

A few years ago we had a second hamster die in our family. Let me correct myself....It was a "Hamster Homicide"!  I think most kids go through that Hamster phase, thank goodness Kaden has not.  Mahala ended up having 3 and then it was just too much on her when they died.  
That day she went to go feed the hamsters and all of a sudden we heard her screaming like "Freddy" was in the room with her. 
Skylar & I both ran in to check on her & that's when we saw bits of fuzz all over the counter.
It was nasty & amazing all at the same time...just try and imagine. I could not believe that one of the hamsters could eat the other. I mean that’s like waking up to find that Skylar ate Mahala.

Skylar gathered up a few of its remains including some fur pieces and put it all in a cream cheese box. By this time poor Mahala was emotional beyond words. All I could do was hold her and reassure her that he wasn’t in any pain now.

Skylar, thought Shadow should go out in style. So, as Mahala, Kaden & I started to walk down our stairs to go outside we all of a sudden hear G-N-R’s November Rain blaring. I’m surprised the neighbors didn’t call the cops.

Skylar cleared a path beside Hammy’s plot. He died like just a few months before. And then he lowered the cream cheese box into the ground while we swayed back and forth to the charm of Axle's voice. Where are the lighters and candles when you need them?  :p  Mahala placed rocks around it & made alittle head stone just like she did for the other one that died. Even Kaden paid his respects....he was so sweet.

As the music played on, Skylar kind of joked about putting up some caution tape to line the Hamster cage. I thought it was too much of course I was accused of being a party poooooper. WHATEVER!!!
Mahala decided that her next pet after Bolt(Murderer) dies she should just get some fish. When they die we can just flush them!!!!  But, it wasn't till just this last Christmas that she did finally get a fish tank with some fish.  And as for Bolt, he lived for almost another year.  Mahala buried him, but wasn't near as upset.  There was no music and no cream cheese box.
