Tuxie Tornado left us for Spirit World

Tux Hamster

Nearly two years ago we got Tux from the pet store. When we first held him he was very sweet but a bit shy. He kept his ears flat against his head and wasn’t very adventurous. The poor little guy was being  bullied by his dominant hamster siblings! Of course we adopted him because we couldn’t put him back in his cage to cower with his big brothers beating up on him.

Tux was a fun little guy. He was very gentle and always took his treats very slowly and carefully from our fingers. He enjoyed the pumpkin seeds we unshelled for him. His favorite treats were banana, apple, golden raisins (not the regular dark ones), dried cranberries, strawberries, almonds, pine nuts, cooked rice, chicken, and shrimp.

He loved to make a big cave of his bedding material and create a tunnel to go in and out.

Here are some of my favorite photos of him.

It was just a month ago that he started not feeling well and we decided we better give him his middle name. We decided on Tuxie Tornado because he worked so hard at keeping his house clean that he’d move his house around like a tornado.

Thanks for sharing your life with us little guy.

  1. I am so sorry about the loss of Tuxie. I had a Teddy Bear Hamster in college named “Cooch” that I just adored. He wasn’t lucky like Tuxie to live that long. ((((hugs))))

    I’m sorry about your Tuxie. I think he had a pretty great life with you and it sounds like he got over his shyness. He sure had a banquet every day, eh? RIP little Hammy. Your family will miss you XOXOXO

    Purrs to you. We cats sadly don’t live as long as you humans, and it is even less fair with hamsters. Tuxie had a great home with you, and I am sure he knew that.

  5. Tux was so adorable and cute. We are very sorry for your loss. R.I.P., sweet Tux.
