Sorry to say that Cheeselet, one sister of the one and only Basil, died last night. I noticed a really large lump under one leg at the front and a secondary appearing on her spine, so I put her to sleep.
She lived coming on for 20 months so not too bad a life, but still sorry to see her go. She was quite reserved and private but we got on really well.
I'm aware that all my mice are getting on a bit now, so if someone could point me in the right direction or introduce me to a proper breeder, I would be very grateful. I'm in Norfolk, UK. Can drive some distance to fetch newbies.
Please don't think me callous in putting this alongside an obituary but I like to overlap my mice so there's always someone new to take care of.
Ask not what your rodent can do for you...
