Trying to get past it...

It's so incredibly sad at our house right now. It's been a week since Leo died and 2 days since Jasper had to be put down, it sucks. It's just been a bla weekend -- which is leading up to a bla week in general. It sucks, we've had so much rotten luck with our animals lately, it's unfair.

In other news, LaVaughn saved a tiny little mouse from Max a little while ago. This is a TINY mouse, like microscopic. He's slightly under the "hopper" stage, so he's not very old at all. We're going to keep him until he's a little bit bigger and then set him free. As of right now, we're calling him Bpo Bpo, which means "a kiss" in Korean.

So yeah, there's that. I'm not even remotely in the mood to blog, so that's all.

Love & Peace


Yeah, we so bought some classics a couple weeks ago. They arrived today.

And now for pictures of Bpo Bpo and his temporary home:

The worst possible outcome...

I don't even know how I'm going to say this, but our sweet and gorgeous boy, Jasper, had to be put to sleep today. What we thought to be worms ended up being FIP, a fatal and incurable disease. LaVaughn called me after they told her, she then began to tell me that they suggest putting him to sleep. Since there was no good outcome even with medication, we decided to have him put down.

One of the hardest and saddest decisions we've ever had to make and I couldn't be there for either of them because I was stuck at work.

I still can't believe it happened. I feel sick all over, sad and just lost.

You will be so sincerely and unbelievably missed, my sweet boy. I will never forget you and hold you in my heart always.

RIP Jasper

It's a beautiful day in the neighborhood... Part 2

So the weather was extremely beautiful today, as well as the lighting. I had to take advantage and break the camera out for a little while. It was a tad on the windy side, so I didn't get the best pictures in the world, but I did get some, which is okay by me.

I also got some updated pictures of Nubbins, which I'm super happy about because I just took new ones last Thursday, so I'm doing good.

In cat news, LaVaughn has to take Jasper to the vet tomorrow while I'm at work. His belly is super swollen and doesn't appear to be going down. There could be a number of things wrong with him, but we're thinking worms. I hate that I can't go with them, but I can't really ask off because I'm one of 4 people that work there, which sucks.

I guess that's all for now. Mainly a picture post, so I'll leave it at that. Until next time...

Love & Peace


Here are all the pics from today -- not labeling anything, so you'll have to figure it out on your own:

Keeping my mind off of the obvious...

So, LaVaughn and I went to Poplar Bluff today. Mainly because we wanted to get out of the house for a while, but also to keep our mind off of losing Leo. We did our usual run - Hastings, Petco, food, then home.

We got Carl and Injured Daryl from Hastings -- they're part of series 4 of the POP! Vinyls, now we just need the other 3, which are extremely expensive, go figure. After that we headed to Petco where we got a new rat. There, I said it... we got another rat. We weren't doing this for ourselves, we were doing this for Louie.

I've researched and talked to numerous rat owners and literally everyone said to get another rat. Louie will get depressed and end up mourning himself to death -- that's what Evan did, remember? So we did it, we got one.

We said we would only get one if there was one that stood out. Long story short, there was. Even the guy at the store grabbed the rat that we were eyeing. So yeah, it was meant to be.

And might I say that introductions went EXTREMELY well!

Welcome to the brood, Merle. You'll have the best life we can possibly give you while you're here.

Everyone say hello to, Merle:

I love fat Louie.

The size difference is insane.
