Good night snurk mousie
At the time I write this, our only remaining mouse is Elleffgie. She is starting to get a lot of gray mixed in with her darker fur as well, and has become more timid and less fond of photography as she's gotten older.
My Mister has decided keeping such little bitties with such short life spans is too difficult, emotionally. We lost most of the mice to large tumors, though Snurk seems to have been spared that.
So Elleffgie is living alone now, getting all the goodies she wants, and when she passes, our mouse house will be no more.
Ratties live longer, relatively speaking, and bond much more readily with their people. We'll be sticking with rats (and our kitties of course) from now on.
