Interesting to read what you all do with your little dude after he/she dies.  Personally I don't believe in doing anything too elaborate such as "mummification" of the remains but I do bury them in the back yard much against the wishes of my stepdad who don't appreciate me digging up his land.  If I had a choice yeah cremation sounds good.  I know I wanna be cremated when I die.

I also don't agree with the act of mummifying a dead hamster.  :hmmm:

Yeah "mummification" of a hamster's remains sounds kind of extreme to me.  Interesting to read that some actually attempt to do it.

I know people that have had their hamsters stuffed and put in glass. That runs about a 100 bucks.

I personally bury mine in a open section in the woods so it's pretty out there and it's peaceful when I want to spend time thinking about them.

When my hamster died a few years ago, we placed it in a tissue box and buried it at the end of the garden.

I first put mine in a clear container. I bury mine in our desert (I live in the desert part of Utah USA) Then I put a rock or symbol by their grave so I can visit it every so often.(My mom ownz a Floral Shop so I can get free flowerz ;D)

I would be sooooo upset if Milo died suddenly and invite all of my closest friends, I would have like a real funeral and wear all black and probably bury him next to the roots of my favourite tree cause my mom does gardening so.......eek. anyway I would dig really deep, cover him in tissue, close the box and then lower it and bury him carving his name is the tree.

I buried my Scabbers in my yard. There is a wooden cross by her grave.

I don't think you should mumify, or cremate a deceased hamster/ or even any pet.
