Mabel

Post by CinnamonPearl on Wed 10 Aug 2016, 3:08 pm

All of you probably know this already, but Mabel passed away last Monday evening. I can't say it was much of a surprise though. I saw it coming and knew that she wouldn't make it to Tuesday. I thought I had saved her from tapeworm, but thanks to my carelessness, it came back for her and took her this time. Maybe if I had jumped on it sooner, she would still be alive, but I don't want to think like that. Mabel was an old woman who lived a full, happy life. She was always so mature, and she took it upon herself to take care of everyone and be the best alpha she could be. The way she would take mice under her wing was just incredible. She could get along with anyone and refused to be challenged. She had health problems throughout her life, but she handled them so well. She was a great mouse, and I'm happy with the life I gave her. Now all I can do is take care of her little sisters in her absence.

Some pictures to celebrate Mabel, the girl with the pig and braces.

Aw. She was such a sweety. It's so sad to see her go Worry I don't think it was your fault, if it's any help. Her face thing seems to indicate there was more than tapeworm going on there if you ask me.

So sorry for your loss. We all know she had a wonderful life with her cagemates and you, even if there were some issues along the way.

I'm sorry you lost Mabel. She really was a trooper for a long time.

Is Egg doing okay without her? Glad she has Rosie as a backup cuddle buddy.

Lovely pictures Love Sorry for your loss CP, she was a lovely mouse.

I don't think you can blame yourself for her passing - you are constantly taking your mice to the vets, keeping an eye on their weights, and doing everything you can to keep them healthy. You did everything you could for Mabel. I would think that her passing was more likely something to do with whatever was causing her face to swell. She may have had an infection or even a tumour.

Mabel had a long and happy life with you and her mouse buddies. May she rest in peace now Rainbow Angel

I think so too, Mouselover. Whatever was going on with her teeth is probably what caused the eye troubles she had her whole life. There's no way to know; I can't get a necropsy now. But I don't think it matters too much.
