Rest In Peace Sasha

Hello everyone. I have some sad news. Yesterday evening our little Sasha passed away. She was a little over a year and a half old which means she lived a long, full life for her species. I found her in part of the puzzle high rise I had made for her. She looked very peaceful, so it doesn't seem like she was in pain.

She was a Sapphire colored Djungarian Hamster, also known as a Russian Winter White, or a Siberian Hamster. They have a dark stripe that runs down their back from the top of their head to their tail. In the wild their fur turns white during the winter to help them hide from predators. They are a relatively friendly species of hamster.

Sasha's favorite's!
Food: Corn
Treat: Papaya
Fresh Food: Cucumber
Activity: Exploring tubes and running on her wheel
Sleeping Spot: A wooden box my dad and I made
Place: Anywhere high up

Sasha loved to be handled and was so sweet. She loved high places and picked through her food to eat the corn first. Our baby girl was brave and amazing.
Rest in peace baby girl.
