ETTA JAMES-SOMETHING’S GOT A HOLD ON ME
Today my hamster Etta James died. She was orange, the same color cardigan Etta James (human) was wearing in this clip, had pretty streaming white edges, a light grey belly, bright black eyes, and a pink nose she tickled my face with. I held her for an hour and a half while she took her last breaths. I adopted her a couple days before Thanksgiving three years ago after my sister and brother moved away together, and lived strong with me in these three years including leaving my family’s into two new homes. She reminded me to be strong, and to continue to love, to never complain, and keep on being. Because of you I always had someone to brightly take care of during all these changes.
You are always a graceful reminder to lift up my head.
Now you pass and go to Hamster Heaven.
I love you Etta James, my Ms.Peaches.
Thank you for always loving me. :)
We’re having a funeral later today by the lake I spent a lot of time at after classes, before coming home to Etta. Ahh. I’ll forever cherish you my fuzzy lil’ peach. Thanks for never biting me or my friends, and always being the same.
I’ll be seeing you.
