Amboy’s “DSL” pet

The “family” just can’t let me get away with it. They demanded for their own post – this post. Hammies year two … that is what the title means.

My three most senior hamsters are already two years old today. The whole family are very grateful about it 😀 for two years in hamsters is an age equivalent to about 80 years old in humans. And if yesterday, I and my wife were honeys for 20 years; 45 days from now, two of these seniors will turn hammie-honeys for 2 years.

Links to last year’s posts about the birthday celebrators:

Mochahontas, the widowed wife, a mother of ‘posthumous’ litter of six.

Mochawonka & Isnohontas (‘The wiggler’ hubby and Hello hammie wifey), teenage dad and mom.

Just for the record:

I’ve been keeping records of my hamster’s “chronicles even before I gained access to the internet:

19 had lived and died before I started to blog.

One died soon, less than two weeks after I launched this blog.

13 were left to be seen “on-live” in my posts.

Out of the 13, nine are still living as of this day).

That makes a total of 33 hamsters.

Of the 24 that had already perished:

11 reached over 2 years and perished of plain old age.

2 lived past their 22nd month (equivalent to about mid-70s) and succumbed to illness of old age.

4 lived between 18 and 21 months (60 and 70) and perished due to trauma, illness or disease.

4 lived between 12 and 17½ months (40 and 50s) and perished due to trauma or illness.

2 lived between 4 and 6½ months (14 and 20s) and perished due to accident or trauma.

1 (adopted, not a family member) lived for only over a month (equivalent to a toddler in humans) and died of illness due to environmental stress.

Notable death coincidences:

Mocha Rurik reached the oldest age among my them (2 yrs 4 mos 10 das).

I still don’t know well why some hamsters live longer than others. The oldest hamster I know on record across the cyberspace is Javi’s hamster Baruchito (over 2 years 10 months); Another well-cared for hammie – Pyza’s Chmurka, lived for only about 20 months.

Blakdyak (2 years 1 day) departed on the midnight past his birthday (B-day, 2004 Dec 13; D-day, 2006 Dec 14).

Bugoy (2 yrs 3 mos 18 das) passed away on a same month and date (2007 Mar 31), exactly one year after his father Faramir (2 yrs 19 das) did (2006 Mar 31).

Beria (the elder) passed away at a young age (1 yr 5 mos 21 das) in 2006, on a Christmas eve.

Arrow (1 yr 8 mos 2 das) passed away prematurely on the day his grand offspring, the Boolagangs were born (2007 Mar 05), 11 days after the Boolagang’s father, the elder Berio (1 yr 2 mos 28 das) perished.

Because Beria-girdel perished at a very tender age (6 months 15 days) of birthing problems, I decided that her sister Bebang-girdel be celibate for the rest of her life. The ironic and remarkable thing is that Bebang-girdel succumbed to cancer at age 1 year 1 month 1 day, which if counted in days is 398 days – exactly double that of his sister (199 days).

This post is supposed to be on birthdays; so NICE of me to talk about deaths.

The truth is, Life is a one way continuum… While the thought of physical death in itself may be uncomfortable, the reality of the certainty of second DEATH for most is more unimaginable.

Birth L i f e Death Eternity, but where to: LIFE or DEATH?

Have you heard about the second BIRTH? That can only happen within Life – somewhere between the two dots. That is a “concern” that needs not bother any hamster, though.

Oo nga… wala sa life agenda ng mga hamsters yan (o maski na anong hayop).
