Delilah

Post by scaredymouse on Tue Mar 14, 2017 9:51 pm

Delilah died very peacefully in my hands today. I'm heartbroken. She had a good life, she had loyal friends, and she was loved. I am so grateful that she left this world so gently and that I was with her. I am going to miss her very much

Run free little love, I hope you found Gilly & Furgie. Until we meet again...

So sorry you lost her, Scaredy. She looked like a sweet mouse. I voted for her in the photo contest, those pictures are too cute.

You're killing me with your inspirational quotes! I'm a puddle over here! Delilah was such a sweet mouse, even from the beginning. She came from the feeder bin.... She was so beautiful and so spirited, I has to bring her home. I has just lost my Penny (scaredy mouse) and I got her for Gilly & Furgie. But I didn't expect to bond with her because I was too heartbroken. But we really connected. She was always in the hammock begging to come out. Always. I could call her name and she would come... Anyway, she will be sorely missed for sure. I feel bad for Jellybean, she has lost 3 of her sisters and is the oldest now. She looks sad ☹ she'll be getting extra cuddles this week.

Ah, sorry, they are happy tears though, no? Smile
She sounds like she was so sweet, all your mice are so sweet. Love Awh, poor little Jellybean!

I'm so sorry to hear, scaredy. Sad It was very inspiring to hear about how well Delilah's colony took care of her.

It's crazy to think that Jellybean is the oldest! Oh my goodness, how old is she? I remember my "originals", the girls that made me get more mice so they wouldn't be lonely. I fell for each one. I hope you and the rest of your girls will be okay soon. Heart

Here's a post for you, anonymous Wink

Yeah, happy tears.  With all the critters that pass through here, I inevitably spend a fair amount of time grieving.  It comes with the territory.  While I don't enjoy it, I've really come to understand it and be at peace.  For one, it reminds me that I'm alive and I don't ever want the day to come where a critter dies and it * doesn't* break my heart.  And I've also come to realize that grief is by nature a selfish feeling and I feel better when I remember that.  I'm not sad because Delilah is in heaven and free from suffering!  For that, I am happy.  I'm sad because I miss her.  So, remembering that there is joy and love mixed in there make it easier to bear Smile

So yes, happy tears Smile

And Peachy, my little Bean will be a year old in 2 weeks!

Aw, not Delilah Sad . I remember when you brought her home to keep Furgie and Gilly company after Penny passed. It hardly seems possible that that much time has elapsed for her to have become a senior mouse. At least you were with her when she passed, a relief for both of you.
