Sebastian, our hamster were given to us by Christine and Oliver when they left for New York in 2005. He became very tame during his too brief stay with us. He used to love to jump into my hands from the cage and loved hand feeding. He scored 2 escapes but will come to my feet when I called him.
We grew to love him very much. Sebastian developed cancer early Jan 2006 and had a tumour growing outside the lip. We decided against surgery for fear that he may not wake up from surgery. He held on bravely for a couple of months and finally succumbed to a couple of months later.
We were all very devastated when Sebastian died. He remains today as one of our most favourite pet. Rest in peace Sebastian.
