Ursa Died
While we were gone for Christmas and she was in the care of John and Michelle, Ursa developed a tumor about the size of her head around her hind leg. Hamsters are such delicate little creatures that there isn’t much we could do. Right after coming back from California, we took her to an emergency veterinary clinic in town where she was diagnosed. After a few final minutes with her, when she wavered between seeming fine and seeming to be in pain, we had her put to sleep. We miss her terribly.

It’s strange how much a little creature can make an impact in your life.
