Gilly

Post by scaredymouse on Mon Sep 26, 2016 8:29 am

Gilly died peacefully in my hands and her sisters had an opportunity to grieve at her side.  We are heartbroken.   Gilly lived a long, full life.  She was 29 months old.  She was the matriarch of my colony and I'm not sure how the girls will live without her.  She welcomed in several females into the colony and outlived a few of them.  She was so very gentle and showed such tenderness to her sisters.  She overcame OCD to live another 1 1/2 years symptoms free.  Despite having a gigantic tumor for the last few months of her life, she never showed any pain and continued to enjoy life.  In fact, I saw her take a leisurely stroll on the big saucer last night in the playpen and she was still stuffing her face with worms the day she died. That's our Gilly.

Gilly, I love you so, so much and I will miss you forever.  You were so special and I am so lucky to have found you.  Run free, little friend... I hope we meet again.

I'm so sorry about Gilly. It really feels like she's been here since forever. She lived such a good, full life. Rest in peace.

I've always loved that picture of her snuggling in the coconut with jellybean. She looks like her adopted Momma Smile

Rest in peace, sweet gentle mouse.

Dear sweet Gilly! How far she came from the hostile, neurotic girl she was when she first came to you to become the loving matriarch of the ever-changing colony Love . Our collective hearts are breaking for you and ladies.

We miss our Gilly pretty bad. Delilah seems to be taking it the hardest though. She has still been recovering from her stroke. She seems lost without Gilly. I fear that Gilly was the primary mouse that was taking care of DeeDee, so hopefully someone else will take that over.

Gilly left us with lots of great memories. Furgie seems to be doing okay, but she's also 29 months old, so I'm sure she's soon tho follow. I just hope DeeDee stays with us.
