Onee (04 Jan 2010-25 Feb 2011)
Onee came to my house the very night Hino passed away... I almost felt as if Hino held on until Onee came to me... But it as only been a short 1 year plus and now Onee had gone over the rainbow bridge as well. Onee had been a really fun loving hamster and had many signature moves (the twist, flip over etc) that made us laugh at many times. Onee was well and even the day before, he enjoyed his strawberry yogurt snack when my mum gave it to him. On the 25th Feb night, Onee just slept, peacefully as ever and did not wake up.
I just want to share this poem with you Onee, for one last time...
Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.
When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge.
There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together.
There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.
All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor; those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by.
The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.
They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent; His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.
You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.
Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together....
