(Yahoo!) - Justin Bieber's former furry friend, Pac, has gone to the great hamster wheel in the sky.
The one-time official mascot of the singer's "Believe" tour – until he controversially gave it away – has died.
Tori McClure, who has been "mommy" to Pac since Bieber handed her its cage outside his tour bus last December, announced that Pac had died of old age.
"They say PAC probably won't make it much longer. He's like an old man. My feelings couldn't be more hurt," she tweeted on Tuesday night. "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."
Bieber fanatic McClure, who hails from Alabama, posted a final photo of the critter, writing:
McClure, who received many condolences for the loss of her pet from Bieber nation (one of them said, "you were like justin's wife then had a kid [that was] a hamster"), also noted that she reached out to the star's management team to let them know that Pac had passed.
