Dora - the library hamster - has died. She had a happy, eventful life at the library since we adopted her in August 2009. Dora was around a year old at that time - middle aged for a hamster. She was a lively spirit, entertained children who stopped by her habitat upstairs and went on several unplanned "walk-abouts" when she accidently got out of her cage. Dora will be missed by all at the library as well as several ferrets and her friend, Norman, the cat.
