My lovely little Tac, my first Roborovski hamster, died during the night. 

I remember, in January 2008 I drove to the Pets at Home more than 2 hours away to get her and Tic. They were the last two there, reserved for me. Loads of people were crowding round their cage, and they looked so cute together. 

Who would have known back then that they were the two Robo's to spark this site, my YouTube channel, my Flickr photostream and a worldwide love of Roborovskis. Tic and Tac have been seen by over a million people. Really, they were special little Robos.

Tac was always the more dominant one. She was larger and had more of a wild spirit than Tic, her cagemate. In November 2008, the two fought, Tac seriously injuring Tic, who then had to be caged seperately. Tic made a speedy recovery, but you could tell she felt lonely, having been with Tac all the time before.

Then, suddenly, in August 2009, whilst on holiday, Tac developed a tumour. The vet said she'd live no longer than a couple of days. But now you see, she lived over a month with it! Her stamina was great. 

So it really fills me with grief to see my first, and not my last, little Roborovski to pass away.


XxX little Tac. XxX.

Hi roborovskihamster, I'm so sorry for your loss! I'm glad Tac lived a good life, even to the end. Any robo would love to be in your care, as your so devoted to them. I have suffered a loss myself so I know what It's like, though you had Tac much longer than I had Archie :( I'm sorry I cant think of much else to say: It's so upsetting at a time like this. I'm sure Tac will be remember by all. Speak soon, James. R.I.P Tac.

she was certainly a brave little fighter to go on as she did, and certainly her and Tic were ambassadors for this site, and well loved members of your family.

 

RIP Tac, gone but not forgotten

I'm so sorry to hear about Tac.  I know she was one of the most loved roborovskis in the world, and although she didnt know it - one of the most famous!  She was so lucky to have you as her mum and I know we're all thinking of you at this sad time.  :)

RIP little Alex and tiny Hamish - always in my heart.

Oh no, not Tac! The most loved Robo in the world, the famous Tac! Why? Why? Why her? She was a cute little robo, and she will be forever missed! I'm so sorry roborovskihamsters! R.I.P. Tac!


This is just like when I lost my little baby Rosie. She was my first, and favorite out of her and her sister, Crashie, who I had to seperate. But Rosie was always getting injured somehow, and I think her last breath was when the CritterUniverse 3 cage sufficated her. Now the 2 are together over the Rainbow Bridge!

I currently own no hamsters. :(

In memory of all of my hamsters. I love and miss you all!

Just wait. pretty soon I'll have 2 new Robo's. I got the cage set up and all! (Hear that dad?) :P

I can't think of what to say to comfort you...... I do have a few words. Although I didn't know Tac to well I'm sure she was a buetiful soul. I loved to look through the photo gallary and see her. She was a worldwide loved hamster. She lived a great life, she also had a wonderful owner. R.I.P Tac you are much loved!
