My dearest Lorca made it to her thirty month birthday, and died.  Her death marks the very end of the family of mice that I started back in 2010 with 'Crazy' Marzipan and sweet, mellow Vladimir. It had always been a dream of mine to enjoy a long line of succeeding generations of mice. Watching them grow from pregnancy to newborn wiggly worms to small mice to old mice.

Here was Lorca's mother, a gorgeous Siamese named Ursula. She was an unrelated mouse I brought in. She was the happiest of smooshaflumps, and Lorca just so happened to become the happiest of all her sextuplets. I LOVE happy mice!

Lorca is the dark mouse in this photo. Her sisters died before they got very old, so I introduced her to the lab mouse, Sarah Jane, for the second half of her life:

I'm so sorry about Lorca. Every time I look at Furgie, I think about Lorca... I'm sad to hear she has passed. I lost Gilly not too long ago and while Furgie is still doing well, she is quite elderly. I love that you had her beginning to end, what a blessing.

So sorry to read about Lorca's passing. 30 months is an amazing age! What a long and wonderful life Lorca had with you as I remember pictures of her on TFM going back a few years.

I'm really sorry to hear about Lorca's passing. She surely lived a nice and long life with you Smile Her and her siblings had absolutely gorgeous coats.

Aww, thank you! Mesa and Scaredy, your personal remembrances are touching. I should share a few more of Lorca herself:

I love the stretching picture! I love her little feets and toes. My Delilah has pale toes like that, I think it's adorable Smile
