Your kind words, thoughts and prayers are a real comfort. It is good to have friends here.
I have a litttle news too. My husband and I woke the next morning after Dru's loss and the empty space where the cage was just seemed unbearable. We decided that we just weren't ready to be a rodent free family.
We weren't sure whether it was too soon, or whether it was right and agonised and agonised as to whether we sould fill the cage again. Eventually we decided although you can never replace the little life that was lost that we could extend our hearts to another one.
You know how it is you go just to look and see what there is and reason with yourself that, that is all you are going to do. You agonise as to whether its too soon but they all look so adorable. I'm afraid we are both big softies and we decided to get a little hamster.
He is a little golden hamster a syrian one. I have called him 'Calm' as he was happy to sit on my hand in the shop. But now he is just nutty now he's home, doesn't stop moving once he's out of the cage.
I could never re-place Dru but her loss has got me thinking of how I would never be without my pets, of how they love us unconditionally and are always there for cuddles if we need them. How so important they are to our lives, if only they knew .......
