The Advertiser was sorry to learn that the winner of our recent Pets Factor competition, James Blake the hamster, passed away last week.

James had lived to a ripe old age, after being rescued from a troubled past by 23-year-old Alice Wilkins, of Buckingham, two and a half years ago.

When the Advertiser announced that James had won the Pets Factor top place, Miss Wilkins said: “He is really friendly and he likes having his belly tickled and likes to run about. He’s the nicest hamster in the world.”
