How sad…

Justin Bieber‘s pet hamster named Pac, whom he gave away to a lucky fan named Victoria McClure after the Jingle Ball in Atlanta last December, has just passed away due to “old” age.

McClure took good care of the tiny rodent in Alabama and she talked about him being sick and eventually dying on Tuesday. Amazingly, the news spread and caused fans to trend the hashtag #RIPpac on Twitter.

The devastated fan, who is still facing rough allegations that she killed the little fella, wrote on Tuesday:

“They say PAC probably won’t make it much longer. He’s like an old man. My feelings couldn’t be more hurt ):”

She continued:

“But they also said ‘on the bright side he got to live a healthy lavish life of a popstar, not many hamsters coulda been the Biebs‘#feelings”

She also shared Pac’s last photo to her followers.

Moments later, Victoria sort-of announced the dreaded news with the tweet:

”Little hamster heaven.”

She added:

“He will be one of my sweetest memories! Thank u @justinbieber so much again. He will always be OUR boy”

And in an exclusive interview with E! News, the fan says:

“I got chills just when [Justin] asked me to have [Pac]. I never would’ve thought it would happen to me. It’s been amazing and getting to talk to the team and getting close to the Bieber was life-changing…[Pac] slept on my nightstand. He was beside me at all times. I mean, I loved him a lot.”
