Rook was our longest living hamster. He died at the ripe old age of 2 years 8 months. I cuddled him in my hands as he drew his last breath. Rook was extremely sweet and will always remain one of our favorite hamsters. For this reason, he was chosen to be the proud father of Queen's babies. One of their children, which we kept, was named Bishop. We chose to keep her, because she resembled her wonderful father.

As with our first hamster, Pawn, Rook was allowed to roam around the house freely (after Pawn died). He enjoyed his freedom for a year or two, but then decided not to return home, but to live under the refrigerator. So after we captured him, he had to stay in his cage, except when supervised. He adjusted to this change well and was still a very happy hamster.
