obituary of a mouse...

seven reasons why you will be missed little mouse...


1. you only cost a dollar and lived for three years, in my books that is value for money
2. you accepted the name 'Snoopy' with grace and never let on you were a girl to our #4
3. you survived three years in a household with three cats
4. you taught our #4 to show care and compassion for little creatures
5. you taught me that mice are lovely and very interesting, which i did not know before
6. you didn't eat much, which in my books is even more value for money
7. i will miss blaming the smell of my boys room on your tank and will have to wake up to the reality that in fact it is my boys and not you that stink

little mousey, as you ascend to the great Las Vegas in the sky, do not be afraid...you will make many new friends because as a mouse goes you are looking in pretty good shape for passing through those pearly gates...

she's off to visit a 'house' for the third time and getting quite excited ~ Tif

My condolences on the passing of sweet-faced little Ms. Snoopy. She is in good company with our Stewart, and hampster cousin, Hannah-Banana.
Best of luck on the house visit! Good vibes coming your way from the north east.

Poor little mousey.
Sounds like she had a good life.

Oh poor little Snoopy. Sounds like a mouse couldn't have wished for a better life though. Or a better send off.
