Last week we mentioned that Portland Hamster wasn’t doing well. Mom’s been taking extra-special care of him as he took his journey to Spirit World and last night he found his way over the Bridge. Portland joined our family at the end of January 2104. He was at the animal shelter and his name was LuLu. Mom thought that was a “girly” name for a male hamster, so she named him Portland because that weekend Dad was away in Portland, Oregon.
Portland was an older hamster when he joined our family, so mom knew he wouldn’t be with us for a long time. We had him only 7 months, but we’re pretty sure he enjoyed life as an Indulged Furry. He had a huge cage, lots of good food with fresh fruits & vegetables, and lots of time out of his cage in the play area or in his ball.
We’ll miss the little furry, but we’re glad we were able to share a little bit of time together.
Here are some photos of little Portland and the life he had with us.
Mom and Dad will find a nice spot in the yard to bury Portland. We’ll be a sad for a little while, but then we’ll focus on what a spunky companion Portland was and the wonderful life he had.
