Goodbye, Gus!


As some of you (the ones who follow on Instagram and Facebook) already know, Gus died yesterday (hence, no Vinyl Monday).

In the morning he enjoyed a blueberry with me, but by the time I got home from work he was gone. I was pretty shook up but, I made him a pretty little place to rest with washi tape, brown paper and a little box. I hope he's comfy.

He was afforded a very long and luxurious hamster life and he was definitely the best little muse I have ever had.

I'll miss him tons! It's really hard to go into the studio and see his empty cage on the worktable. I may craft on the couch for a few days before I'm comfortable enough to go clean out his cage and put it away.

I'll miss you lil' bear!

How sad. :( Gus had a long and busy life. It sounded as though he had a luxurious life compared to most 'rodents'. His long life was due to the the superior snacks you shared and the the superior company. Clean out his little abode and go and 'rescue' another! I am sure Gus would want you to. (((Hugs)))
