I bought my twins two male hamsters about 2yrs ago, they named them and have played with them constantly, they were definitely two of the most loving, docile, playful pets you could wish for, they even named them Moe and Roonie after the Doodlebops. I found Moe dead in his cage today and shockingly he had been cannabalised by Roonie, I was in total shock. I was that shook up that my husband had to deal with removing him and disposing of him. I am now in a dilemma of how to break the news to my twin girls as they loved them dearly. My husband thinks it's better to say he got sick and we had to take him to the Hamster hospital were he needs to live from now on,I on the other hand think I should tell them that he died and went to hamster heaven, I have tried discussing death to them before when we have seen dead bugs etc and they always tend to say"Mommy your not going to die" so it's a difficult topic. I am interested to hear from any other parents on how they have dealt with the death of a pet and the best and most gentle way of breaking the news to our children

I miss traveling with my husband. Has anyone found a specific site regarding cruising for widow/widowers or any sightseeing trips.
