Goodbye, Autumn (Pic Heavy)

Post by AnonymousMouseOwner on Wed 13 Jun 2018, 3:30 am

I got Autumn on July 30th, 2017 from a show mouse breeder when she was 2 months old. That means she was nearly 1 year, 2 months old. I remember how shy she was, she wanted nothing to do with me and hid a lot. When she was introduced to the girls, she was very sweet and accepting of her new cage-mates.  She never got in fights, and always bowed down to the alpha rather than fighting back. What a peaceful mouse.

Then two months later, I found her hunched over, breathing heavily. She let me pick her up which was very unusual for her then. We scheduled a vet appointment for the next day. She went to the vet, the vet was impressed by how easy she was to handle and loved her big ears. She was sent home with medicine. At first it was very hard to give her medicine, but after doing it everyday for two weeks, it just got faster and easier. Because she was handled everyday, she really started to bond with me and wasn't shy anymore.

After she made it through the URI and was done with her antibiotics, she was super tame and begged to be held everyday. I would run my fingers across her tail and she'd wrap her tail around me sweetly. I could hold her, pet her, walk her around the house. She loved it.

Fast forward to today, I walked in the room and was shocked to find her lying down in a tube and not coming out to see me. I tried to feed her treats, she wouldn't take them. So I picked her up, and she just laid there in my hand, resting her body into my hand instead of walking around on it. I set her back in the cage, left for about ten minutes, came back, and she was gone. It was such a shock knowing that she was totally acting like herself yesterday and all the sudden she just passed within minutes.

I will miss her greatly, she was such a sweet little baby and I loved hanging out with her   Worry
