Um Mortimer, I think you have some food on your face there. Oh, you're saving it for later. Of course you are.
The fundraiser at gofundme.com/ChipsMemorialFund is going really well. In less than 24 hours we have raised $773 in memory of Jacob's best friend, Chip. I would love to see this fundraiser keep going as Jacob and his mom are already floored by the generosity of the hamster community.
It always really hits me in the feels when a child who had trouble making human friends loses their best hamster friend. That might be because I can clearly remember losing my guinea pig, Rosie, as a child. She passed away in my arms and I cried for days. I remember not being able to sleep the first night she died and just sobbing at the rolltop desk in my bedroom. I don't know that it actually gets easier as you get older, but the first loss often hits the hardest. #guineapig #love #rescue #donate
