Poor Templeton

Our little boy has passed away. He got fleas, and we took care of them, but ever since then his health has been declining. He got a tumor, and he was in severe pain for a few days. It got bad enough that we decided to put him down. I'll spare you the gross and sad details. 

I'll miss out poor little guy.

He was a very sweet and timid boy. I don't think we've had a rodent this sweet since Mr. Nibbles. He was affectionate, and loved Pooh crackers. Gnome loved him. She loved to put him in a blanket and watch him find his way out. She also enjoyed feeding him...excessively. He didn't like to walk on the wood floor. He was only comfortable on the rug, on the couch, or in his cage. He loved being under blankets. He was super cute! 

I felt prepared for him to pass, but I'm still very sad. We need to stop buying rodents. It is too hard to see them go so quickly. 


  1. I'm so sorry. Those little guys do come with such different personalities. No two are ever the same. Still miss my frist hamster *hugs*

  2. I'm so sorry. It's so hard to lose a pet. They're so much part of your family. I'm glad he's not in pain anymore, though. *hugs*
