As an adult I should be doing better. But I’m not. I woke to find my Norman had passed during the night. And I’m overwhelmingly heartbroken. My newest snuggle bug, therapy hamster, my little happy place is gone. My daughter is crushed and I can’t fix it it.

Some of you may be rolling your eyes, and if so I ask that you keep your negativity quiet.

Norman wasn’t here with us long enough, and this little fur ball brought many needed smiles.

  3. I get it. And just because we’re ‘adults’ doesn’t mean the loss of a loved one (animal or human) doesn’t hurt, sometimes horribly. My condolences. A small sliver of silver lining though (depending on your beliefs) is that Norman is now in a better place, where hamsters run free.

  4. I am so so sorry! Anyone who mocks sorrow needs a dose of compassion, because:
    a. grief is grief is grief
    b. pets are family
    There is nothing you can do to ‘fix’ it, but you can be with your daughter, in your shared sorrow over Norman’s passing. Perhaps find some solace in the memories of the silly, cute, loving, adorable, funny thing he did, and in the joy he brought you I don’t know how old your daughter it, but perhaps it can also help to make a little ‘memory corner’ with a favorite photo or two, and write down/draw some of the things you remember of him, and can now remember him by. It sounds like you gave him a good home, and that is a gift worth holding on to in one’s heart.
    Hugs if they help.
