I feel like I am only posting bad news, sorry. Yesterday Alex, my most tamest, delightful, gorgeous little head girl started showing the signs that Eve had. A bit unsteady on her feet and I just knew looking at her all was not well. We went to the vet last night and have Synulox and Metacam. I separated her immediately and gave the other girls a clean environment.
Alex was running on her wheel this morning and has had food and drink and loves. You might not know to look at her yet and it's really only apparent when she moves around, but I know.
I call her my 'head girl', - she is alpha female but not snappy or nasty. She went with other mice to the vet just to keep them company. You can pick her up and put her anywhere with anyone, she is stoical and gorgeous and doesn't deserve this.
Mum to ratties Bosley, Ruby, Emily and Jean, Teddy the hamster and George the gerbil.
Never forgotten - my lovely fancy mice Jill, Kate, Eve, Kris, Sabrina, Dylan, Kelly, Abby, Tiffany, Natalie and Alex and wild mice Harry and Wills and Charlie the gentle-man Rat.
