It was so hard to lose each and every one of them.

Losing pets is the very hardest part of owning them. I panic if one of my chickens isn't looking well, lol!!

I spotted your little carousel horses in that pic too, I have two of those and a few big carousels that go round and play music, I love them!!

I love rats too, I would have loved to have one as a pet but my mum doesn't like their tales, so I had mice instead.

I've had the same problem with ratties. Don't be ashamed of grieving! Just because rodents are small and short-lived doesn't mean they are worth less or that you love them less. I grieved for a full two months when my little Uppity died, and I still miss him many years later.

Why don't you keep her and see about adopting another of about the same age after you move? A different home could stress her, you would miss her, and she could be left alone anyway if the other animals at a new home die or the other people get tired of them and . . .

Thanks Chrispy *HUGS*

Equine - I collect Carasoul Horses! I have TONS. I have so many, I had to wrap them up and store most away in rubbermaid tubs down in the basement.

Hmm, have you looked into getting a rescue piggie from a rescue centre?

I had to do that after one of my girliepigs died, we had to get a male, and he's the best guinea i've ever had!

I'm so sorry, I know how it feels, it's always so hard and people never understand why it hurts so much when you lose one because to other people they're just small insignificant animals..

Muchlove :)
