Goodbye, Rip  

Last night, my black mouse, Rip van Winkle, died. I believe it was a combination of old age (she was over a year and a half old) and her body being unable to take sudden climate changes (she lived in my very small room, and we are having very hot weather. Even with the AC on low or just the fan on, it will suddenly get very cold in here). She had been getting sluggish these past few days, but was still eating and drinking, so I chalked it up to the climate, but this morning I found her dead in her cage. She was my last mouse, her black and white companion, Zorin, having died last year at around this time. I currently have no plans to get any more.
