Bad news first
Chelsea Buns passed away last wednesday. She had some problems with intestinal bloating and was very dehydrated. I found her in the corner of her high rise, bundled up. It looked like she was sleeping at first and I didn’t find out she was dead until I tried petting her and she didn’t move. At least she looked like she went peacefully.
Secondly, Cow, the Merle my friend and I were planning on breeding, passed away last night. She was found dead in her cage with a sunflower seed lodged in her throat.
Chelsea Buns’ mother also passed away from old age.
I have contacted a breeder and I’ll be expecting new mice in April.
I will be obtaining a male Agouti Rex
And his RY sister
Their names will be Link and Aryll.
The breeder also said she might have a merle litter ready for us by the time I pick up those two, so I’ll be able to get a replacement merle for my friend for us to breed with. Link will be our stud and will probably breed only once depending on how things go then will remain my pet.
My friend’s mom is also taking us shopping today for new mice, as we’ve both lost our beloved pets recently. I’ll be posting about my new arrival later today.
In other news, I’ve reunited Cheng Ting and Chevre Truffles and the two are seemingly getting along for now and are perfectly healthy. There’s some slight aggressive grooming but I’m keeping an eye on them and will probably keep the new female separate until I decide if it’s safe to introduce her to them or not. If not, Cheng Ting will be removed and the new girl will be housed with Chevre Truffles.
