Goodbye Eduard

Eduard died yesterday. He was sleeping when I left for work and dead when I got home.

I kind of expected it since he didn't even wake up as he usually does when I stroked him.
It still hurts.
And I miss him. Even though we didn't see each other very much with him being awake when I was asleep.

It's the first time that one of "my" pets dies while I am around. With all the other pets I was living at a different place or away for a longer period of time. The loss was in a way not so immediate. Yesterday I still had a hamster living with me and today I went out and buried him. No more Eduard.
No one waiting for me to get home.
No one demanding my attention in the quiet morning hours.
No more comfy rustling hay.

My apartment feels very empty now, and I feel lonely in a weird and hollow way.
