27. across a few years my daughter, as a college student & beyond, had seven pet mice

they were adorable

unfortunately their lifespan isn't long

it was a tragedy and heartbreak each time one died.

she had moved back home after college and the mice came with her. they would visit on weekends from school.

she started with two. one died. she got two more. the second mouse died. so she had two. one died. she got three more. then she had four together. and one by one, they died.

it was so devastating that when we got down to the last two i told her "you can't do this again. we can't keep going through this."

each was given a private cremation and she has their ashes in little urns.

it was so fascinating to me how these little creatures could be so loved and cherished and bring such sadness at their parting. it's almost like i never would have believed it if it hadn't happened to me.
