I don't know how old he was when I got him, but typically a fancy mouse will live approximately one and a half years...and I had Skirmy for two and a half. I suppose it was his time, but it surprised me when I went over to his habitat this morning for breakfast and found him peacefully passed on. Since we rent, I can't dig around our yard to bury him, and I refuse to bury him in a public area (I don't even know if that's legal anyway). I'd really love to be able to get him freeze dried or taxidermied, but that's expensive. Until I can figure out if I'll be able to afford something like that soon, he's in a sandwich baggy in the freezer...I'm crazy, I know.
Rest in peace, my little wheel-crazy squeaker.
