Biscuit, Buttercup's beloved hamster, lived a really long and full hamster life. Unfortunately, that life came to an end last night. She came to our family in the spring of 2008, which means she lived roughly two and a half years...she died an old lady hamster. In her life, she accompanied Buttercup (and our family) on numerous camping trips and two trips across the state of Washington. We learned the hamsters can get motion-sickness (and she definitely suffered!). She survived several assassination attempts (we do have cats, you know) and unscheduled walk-abouts. She was clever and gentle and Buttercup's beloved playmate (and Superman thought she was pretty special, too)...our family is sad today.
Rest in Peace...we will miss you...
Buttercup, Valiant, and Mom
