Bobo's Death Anniversary

Hey there dawgies and kitties! It's Coco updating this thing today. I don't usually like to be in the limelight and all, but today's different.. Today marks the 1st year of dearest Bobo's passing away.

This is Bobo, my sister.

Bobo is my sweet sister, whom Mum (in case you don't know, our Mum is A) loves alot. She was timid, quiet, sweet, and had quite a special bond with Mum. When we first came to Mum, we lived together.

The house Mum and Grandmomma made for us sisters.

We did a lot of things together...

We ate together, like this...

We slept in the house together.

Cuddled on the wheel together..

& tried to run on the wheel together at the same time!
(which always results in one of us falling out, teehee)

But after we turned about 3 months old, I decided to not share MY house, MY food, MY water with Bobo. (You can't blame me! It's just what Winter White Russian Dwarf Hamsters do! They prefer to live in solitary once they reach a certain age!)

I started chasing her whenever I see her eating. I started starting fights with her for no reason. I started chasing her out of the house when I wanted to sleep.
[A: Bobo would always squeak in fear when Coco chased her for the foods, or for no reason whatsoever. With the foods, Coco would grab the food from Bobo, run off, keep the food, and head back to punish Bobo. Very naughty girl! Bobo has never retaliated once.]

Mum separated us when this started. We each had our own big homes (no peeks because Mum didn't have a camera then. She could only use her sister's camera, which wasn't always available).

Still, Mum tried to let us see each other once in a while when we are let out to play and eat. But still, I refused to be nice.

On 20th Nov 2009, without warning, Bobo was gone. She was only 7 months old. If she was still around, she'd be the same age as me right now (which would be 1yr & 7 months old!). Mum was devastated. Bobo was buried, and I continued to be a princess.

I took into my paws to grow up and be nice to Mum. I stopped biting her whenever she tried to bring me out to play and eat. I came out to greet Mum whenever she called my name. I learnt to run up Mum's arms to her shoulder and made her laugh.

How unglamorous for a girl to sleep this way! Tsk. I disapprove.

R.i.P Bobo~
I hope that you have found out where all the yummy seeds and fruits are over at the Rainbow Bridge. I promise I won't bully you no more when we meet again, dearest Sister. <3
