I saw Shadow when I went home. Grandpa’s right, she is getting really old. She crapped in the house while we were gone, even though one of dad’s friends came by and let her out both days.
However, while I was home, I got some of the old stuff my mice from college used to play with. I think some of my Christmas cash is going toward getting two new, smaller pets. And the pet store clerk had better swear on his LIFE that they are both girls before I buy them. I am not doing the surprise baby mice thing again.
