Headline: Lizzie!mouse died very unexpectedly last night.

She was totally the bestest mouse ever because she preferred being on a person to not being on a person (especially meeeee, but that's just because she lived in my bedroom). She would hang out on me for hours while I lay on the floor reading and wouldn't run away, and would run up this bird-ladder I bought her to hang out by the opening of her cage and beg to be taken out. She would also fall asleep on my keyboard whenever I was LJ-ing, because the keyboard is warm.

This is, of course, all because she had been in quarrantine away from the other mice (who we thought were the sick ones, wtf) for a month, and so was more socialized with humans than with mice. I selfishly want to keep all my pets that way in the future so that they will LOVE ME.

(For those who will wonder, John!mouse really could not have cared less. It was kind of sad. He's totally having a transgendered gay mouse relationship with Ronon now in their double-decker Penthouse Of Love. w0lfstar and I are considering taking their names away and renaming them Lois & Clark.)

I still really miss my dog, and feel guilty that every time one of the mice dies, she's totally what I think of.

In other news, I think I need a mental health filter and/or a boot to the head. This shit's getting to feel like too much to deal with by myself, but I've gotten all skeered of posting again.

oh no! not lizzie!mouse!

and john/ronon! *sniffles* though, the rename would be fun :)

write whatever you need to write, however you need to do it. Tis your LJ, after all, and if someone doesn't want to read it it's very easy to just skip over it. filters are most definitely helpful sometimes, though. *snuggles* I can call you if you want, to talk about what's bothering you, or just to ramble about Atlantis, or anything else. I'm very good at rambling :)

Aww *hugs* I'm sorry! I've had rats and mice and they can make such great pets - especially the really special ones like Lizzie!mouse. :(

I wouldn't feel guilty that you think of your dog, too. I'd say it was a really natural thing.

Poor Lizzie. :-(

I always think about my dog when an animal dies. But then I'm usually thinking about my dog anyway...

I am so sorry to hear about Lizzie!mouse. But dude! Post what you want and when you need to, it's your journal and your friends-yeah, that'd be us-are here for ya. Swansmooches!

I'm sorry about poor Lizzie!mouse. And I think it's totally normal that it reminds you of your dog--because no matter how cool the mice are, it's just not the same as the puppy you've had forever. Every time I hear of anything dying--especially but not exclusive to pets--I think of my poor Callie-dog. It's worth it to love them, but losing them still sucks a lot. :(

And if you need to post, post. You shouldn't feel like you're burdening/annoying/whatever anyone. And there are filters.

*sends lots of hugs* I've missed you being around, m'dear!

*sniffs* I'm so sorry (but smack John!mouse for not caring and jumping the next best thing, ok?)

Your last photo session with all of them was so cute and funny. I will miss Lizzie *hugs you*

Aw I'm sorry about the mouse, that's so sad. When I hear about a pet dying I think of my wee cat dying and I remember how sad is that.

Don't be scared of posting mental health stuff to me, I've been through most of the standard stuff as you know! And you don't need a boot to the head!

oh noes!

poor lizzie!mouse

tho i have to say, John!mouse is acting in true 'male' style. When my carson!mouse died, Rodney couldn't have cared less either. Oddly enough he seems right at home by himself in the cage...

Re: you dont know me but
Aww, thank you. She was indeed a rare mousie. I am now keeping rats, too -- they have Lizzie-like friendliness and hopefully will be a little hardier. :(
