Astra

Post by EverythingAnimal on Tue Aug 02, 2016 7:59 pm

I went up to the tank this morning to feed the girls, and wondered why only two mice came to the food bowl today when i refilled it and figured Astra was still sleeping. Turns out, I was right.

She had two large tumors, I have no doubt it was cancer. I don't know of her age, but she was full grown when I got her, last Thanksgiving. She was one of my first three girls, of which I only have Ellie left. She has the same tumor.

I buried her in a box willed with treats and tp rolls and tissue in the forest, under the same tree I buried Merci an eternity ago. I hope they are running around together, wherever they are.

I don't know what else to say except that Ellie and Suzie are fine for now and I would like to find them a third friend eventually.

Rest in Peace, Astra. Keep smiling on, just like you did for my profile picture... Rainbow Angel

Sorry to hear about Astra. Sounds like she had a full life and went peacefully, and was given a beautiful send-off.

I'm so sorry. It sounds like she went gently. She was beautiful.

So sorry to hear about Astra but the burial sounds beautiful. All of my girls are buried in front of my house, under the dwarf lemon tree, so they're together and I am reminded of them every time I go out the door.

I'm so sorry to hear about Astra. It's so hard to lose girls, especially so soon after taking them in.
