while i don't believe a messy room makes you deserve your hamster to commit suicide, i agree that if your mom is willing to make that statement in the occurrence of a pets death, then you really should clean your room. If not for yourself, do it for the loving memory of hammy!
Contrary to popular belief, your hamster actially got a calling from his tribe members across the street who were going to initiate him to become the tribe leader. But only if he was able to fly over there like he had promised them earlier during the week to try to impress the lady of the tribe. He thought: "if those damn squirrels can do it, so can I!!" And then he jumped. Unfortunately he had his work cut out for him, flying turned out harder than it seemed. And that was how the story of Johnny the hamster ended. - Narrated by Morgan Freeman
Sorry about your hamster, your mom should have been nice to you or tried to help you feel better.
It was a hamster. They don't have the longest life spans. Not that that makes it better. I'm just saying this would have come soon enough.
Being an ass =/= being logical. Nobody is stupid enough to think their pet hamster is going to live forever. But there's a difference between a pet dying of natural causes after a happy life, and a pet dying suddenly, unexpectedly and well before it's time. That's just...common fucking sense. Nobody wants to hear that their pet (who they obviously love, regardless of life expectancy) was going to die "soon enough" anyway. What kind of person even thinks like that? Especially when the pet didn't even die of natural causes.
Maybe you should have gotten it a more secure cage or something.. hamsters aren't the smartest and don't know any better than to climb out! that sucks though OP, sorry for your loss D:
Get a new hamster and cover everything in bubble wrap.. It's bound to work.
Get a ferret, they do well in messy rooms because they like making things messy to begin with!
