sad2

(no subject)

I just found Naomh, one of my mice, dead in the cage.

I hadn't seen her in a few days, but that's usually not a cause for concern. The mice aren't as social as the rats, and they like to hide inside their little playhouse.

But I'm feeling all guilty anyway, since I don't know how long she's been dead, and how long poor Fluffy has been sitting in there with a dead body.

And Morven just passed away a few months ago, as well.

Fluffy doesn't seem to care much, as long as she gets fed regularly, but I'm still feeling sorry for the little thing.

I'd get her some new companions, but I'm reluctant to buy any new pets since the ratties are sort of a hand-full by themselves, and I'm afraid I won't have enough time left to properly take care of the newcomers. And I was planning to stop keeping mice anyway.

But it's just so sad to think of Fluffy in that cage all by herself.

*le sigh*

Rest in peace, little Naomh.
