Hamilton “Hammy” Johnson joined the Johnson family January 9th, 2006. Though the date and whereabouts of his birth are unknown, we found him at Petsmart and chose him especially from a group of his peers. Hammy was a happy fancy hamster, of the dwarf variety, who instantly took to his new home – running on his wheel, going up and down his ramp, and climbing the walls. Hammy brought much happiness to our home until the afternoon of August 17th when I found him rather peaceful-looking and still in his cage. Upon inspection by Mr. Johnson, he was pronounced dead at 12:30 pm and promptly buried in the Johnson front yard. Hammy is survived by his mom Jaime, dad Andrew, and brother Tyler. He will be missed.
