I guess most of you have not heard from me before, and the rest of you haven't seen any posts from me in a long while.
I haven't felt like sharing any thoughts or pain lately.

On May 21, 2008- I lost my mouse Gordon. The only comfort was that he was not just my furkid, but he was a huge part of the nature program that I worked on last summer, and for over 9 weeks last summer, he touched hundreds of children. He was their favorite animal in the room. ( We also had a snake, a small lizard, 2 toads, 2 crayfish, a red-eared slider turtle, a rabbit, and a few local fish). All were used for educational and compassionate teachings, and all were released back into the wild with the exception of the lizard and rabbit who were adopted, and the turtle and Gordon. I know Gordon served a great purpose, and he also visited a local elementary science club that I did some volunteer presentations for in the fall of '07. The children loved him as much as I did. Mice can have short life spans, but he accomplished a lot in his.

I lost my beloved 15 1/2 year old cat, Rufus on March 1, 2008, and that has been very painful. I raised him form a kitten, and he slept with me all of the time, even during short "cat" naps. I still find it hard to wake up and not have him here. sad.gif

Now a quick bit of background, I have lost 23 furry children, 8 close humans, and a few acquaintances- all since May 2004.
I am not sure how I still get up everyday, but I keep on trying.

I am so sorry for those of you with recent and painful loss(es) to handle, I do know how hard it is. I honestly cannot say that it gets easier, but the memories do get better.

Thank you to any and all who read this topic.

Peace, Love, and Prayers,
Michelle

This is my Rufus...

I am sorry you lost Gordon and Rufus. You show you have definitely had experience going through all this time and again, as most of us have.

I especially understand Rufus...after 15 1/2 years....I lost my Little Guy after 16 1/2 years..the longest I was allowed by fate to keep one of these precious ones. I also raised him from a kitten..along with his twin brother, Keeper and his sister Little Girl...all gone now.

Such a sweet picture of Rufus..I am glad you posted it.

You know we here feel and understand your pain because it is the same as ours. True, as you have said..the memories do get better.

We are here listening anytime you want to talk...tell us some of the good memories of your furbabies, post more pictures...whatever helps you to feel somewhat better.

I wish you peace and healing. You have been through a lot since 2004 but I am glad you keep trying because these special ones do need us and we know.....we need them too.

Hugs wub.gif

Good Evening Michelle!
Yes there's a lot of pain, sorrow, grieving and at the same time compassionate talk here. As LoveThem said keep posting any time you want to talk or just listen. I think there's some truth to 'misery loves company'!

I can relate to that somewhat. My entire immediate blood family is gone now, i'm what you might say the 'Last of the Mohicans'. And i lost my best friend Duncan a few weeks ago.
Having said that, i still very much look forward to the sun rising every morning and dealing with life's trials and tribulations. You might say i'm 'born again' every morning i wake up. To me life is a precious gift, the past, the here, the now and the future should all be celebrated as such.
The trajedies, the loss of our humans and furry pets, etc. is all but a part of life and in the Grand Scheme of things we'll be ultimately judged on how we cope with and handle these events.

Our pets as i see it are not here to provide life long grief or to negatively alter our life after they pass. They are here as a temporary gift to provide us positive 'stepping stones' to build our own character necessary for life's fullfillment. IMO, to prolongingly grieve over a death whether human or fur is counter productive to our own well being as hard as that might sometimes be to accept. But eventually, accept we must and then move on!

Take care Michelle,
-Ken

This is my Rufus...


i'm sorry you've been through so much loss. i had a mouse which was my 1st mouse that only lived one week in child hood(ralph) and we were so close. i was so sad when he passed. i had two great rats pass this year(tony and peanut). also my 1 year old kitty (acorn) passed last month. it doesnt matter how long the special ones spend in our lives. they still leave a huge impact. ive lost countless beloved pets but never any people close to me. i cant imagine what you are going through. you are an inspiration for going on with your life despite all the hardship.

with love corina and her angels

Hi Michelle, I am sorry for the loss of your cat and mouse. Your Rufus had a long happy life, and your litte mouse offered much needed knowledge in this world. How proud you should feel for that. Funny, I had field mouse living in my garage for months. Tried as might to capture it the humane way, but he eluded every trap I set. At one point he crawled in my car, chewed a wire that cost 125.00 to fix and still fed him. I honesty think it ate itself to death. Furry, big or small, I love them all. Come back from time to time let us know how your doing. Love your Avatar, looks like my little Arthur I lost on Jun8th. Take Care.. Ann

I know i'm probably gonna upset some here but i'm sorry..... I consider 'wild' mice pests, plain and simple. In the barn, they get into my tractors, my pickup, power tools and work bench drawers and make a mess among the hand tools with their droppings and nests. I trap em with good ol fashioned spring traps and once in a while one of my dogs will also get one. They also carry and spread diseases. Heavily infested mouse dropping areas can be real hazardous to breath in.
A couple years ago, Dolly cornered a mouse in her kennel and from what i could see, she sort of made that mouse her own pet. She'd pick it up, drop and then gently paw it again and again not allowing it to escape. After a while that mouse finally died of a heart attack i think!

Now we've got these big ol bull snakes here in abundance. Some grow to four feet or more and are very aggressive if cornered. They'll sit up like a cobra and lunge towards you. I won't knowingly kill not one of them as they are one of nature's best mouse traps.

Same goes for the big rat moles. My county including my property is infested with them. They make gigantic mounds a foot high and are as large as a small cat. The only way i can get them is to undig a freshly dug tunnel, wait for em to stick their head out and blast em with my double barrel 12 ga. Yee Haaa!

Sorry if any of this upset anyone here but this is life in the country.

I can relate to your field mouse story.
I had rescued a 5 day old field mouse on September 5, 2001. I had to feed him a supplement every 2-4 hours for 3 1/2 weeks, and then he survived and lived a king's life for 3 years and 3 months, losing Chance was devastating!

I also rescued another deer mouse orphan, Midget, in July of 2005, and she is still with me. About 8 months later, I rescued another orphan, Stuart, and he is still with us.

Kudos for helping your visitor survive, all animals are important. I have just adored my field mice, but I would not have kept them in captivity except that they were orphans and could not survive without their Mothers' teachings.

Here is a picture of Chance, the first orphan, celebrating his first Christmas.

Yes, this upsets me a great deal!!!! I also live in the country.
There are alternatives to trapping, and one is a granulated pheromone that smells of fox, and is 100% safe for humans and pets. Mice smell it, sense a predator, and move on. It can be sprinkled around the perimeter of your home, or placed on a plate in a large area, such as a garage, barn, basement, attic, etc.
If you took the time to do this, you wouldn't have to kill anyone!
By the way, this is not the right place for you to come and tell grieving souls about your (or your dog's) massacres.
As you can tell, I have compassion for these "pests" as you call them, and when I lost Chance, it was one of the hardest experiences of my life. If you look at some of my old posts, you can tell how grief stricken I was to lose him.

http://lightning-strike.com/forum/index.ph...ic=1825&hl=

This was an old post of mine about all I was going through then, as you can see, Chance was a beauty, and all animals deserve to live a life. Humans are the worst predators of all!

You knew your post would upset someone, so I am telling you that it was me for sure. Happy?

Michelle

Wow. I will never offer Duncan my support or compassion. I don't care if you have a dog, cat or a mouse for a pet: I don't care if you live on the farm on a highrise in New York City, the whole point is he completely disrespected the feelings of Mos Mommy. the whole and entire reason we come to this site is for support with our grief feelings, to share and empathize with each other. To so lightly talk about "blowing their heads off" to people who are paralyzed by losing an animal, I find that completely unacceptable. I think Duncan should find another site where he can enjoy talking about killing.

In my reply note i specifically went out of my way and even quoted the word 'wild' mice. No doubt a wild mouse or other creature could become a pet of some kind and you are correct in that would put it in an etirely different category ..... definitely not the pest category.

mosmomy,
i'm sorry you were offended by my post but this is not a perfect world we live in...this is just the way it is.
I realize you have sincere compassion for mice as pets and thats your choice which i respect.

However, one man's pet is another man's pest or food.
If you had lets say a goat or a chicken as a pet, how would you feel about those species being slaughtered by the thousands for human consumption?

As a dog lover myself:
They eat dog and cat meat in some countries...do i like that concept?...absolutely not!
Animal shelters legally kill thousands of stray dogs and cats....do i like that concept?...absolutely not!
Geuss what i'm trying to say is that we have to keep things in relative perspective.

To humanely trap or use repellants for hundreds of mice out in the country is just not practical IMO. I initially did try using those electronic mice repellers in the barn and they just don't work there. However, i do use one in my garage and it does seem to work there as i've got unsprung traps sitting there for months now.

And I agree with you valgib, I am in state of shock, I can not believe he is talking about killing Baby Pets here, I will not care about "Duncan" anymore, ever, he dosen't belong here and I am very sorry for "his" Pets also, what a shame and very sorry about it.

I learned young that wonderful things come in small packages. smile.gif

My Dad used to make things in his garage. One of the most beautiful things he made was a conastoga wagon. He carved each spoke with expertise and soaked his wood and was patient while it dried to just the right shape. It took well over a year for him to finish this wagon. You could say my Dad's garage was his getaway place from the havoc in the house since he had 5 children creating hub bub all the time. There was no peace and quiet for him except there.

While he worked on this particular project a mouse had become his friend. That mouse sat with him everytime my Dad went out and worked on his wagon. He named him Peanut. My Dad was truly an animal lover no matter what the species and he taught me to look inside people....not the outside......and felt the same way about animals. Inside every package is a special kind of living soul for somebody.

When Peanut passed away on my Dad's workbench my Dad cried. I cried too because my Dad cried and I was saddened for him. This little Peanut of his kept him company out there in peace and solace for a long time. No other mouse came to sit with him ever again even though we all knew there were lots of them around.

All creatures great and small........God hath made them all. When one of His creatures brings such joy and happiness to another it is a true blessing and gift; no matter what kind of package it comes in. wub.gif Gordon obviously was a special gift to you and the children who's lives he touched in such a wonderful way.

Peace and God's blessings to you,
Beth

I, first, had to respond to this adorable story. Animals can be so amazing, and they seem to know when we need them. Chance, for example, saved my life. The day I got him to take care of was BAD day, and I didn't think I had the strength to keep living my life, then he came in and gave me a "small" reason to stay alive- to save his life. When he was surviving on his own, I felt it was the miracle I had prayed for.
I also finished rearing a baby red squirrel in 2000, and I called him, Peanut. As much as I would have loved to keep him, I felt it would have been wrong. He was almost ready to leave his Mom anyway, so I finished showing him how to open hard foods, and fed him softer foods until he could crack his own shells. I kept him in a cage that hung from the ceiling, to get him used to heights, and when he was released, that cage was covered and hung in a tree. For a week, he came and went from that cage, and I provided food and water, after that- he moved on. He did visit for the first few years, so he must have been living on the property. It was pretty cool.
In my yard, and my piece of the world, no animal is unwelcome or considered a pest, and I have had the raccoons raid my bird feeders, I just had to keep trying to out smart them. The deer have done it, and the squirrels and chipmunks, but nature has it's own circle. I do not use pesticides or herbicides, as all these critters serve a purpose in nature, and nature is harsh enough. I don't like to watch it, but I know it happens.
They all have a part in their own play.

To Jon730 and LoveThem, and anyone else who may think that Duncan was in a state of grief and didn't think that about the way his comment might have sounded, I have to disagree. The above quote from his post proves that he knew what he was about to type might be offensive. When you start off a reply like that, maybe you should think before you keep typing.
This was my topic to begin with, and I posted for compassion and grief, not just for me, but for all who read it. For the record, I don't think I was too harsh with Duncan, and I did not ask him to leave, I just told him my reaction, and again referring to the above quote from him, he knew there would be a reaction. That is what I gave him, and I did not disrespect his loss or his dog when I replied.

So to this, I have to say that the words about 'status' or 'promotion' are just words that humans use to rationalize their love of some animals, and not others.

As for the talk of slaughtering, shelter kills, or cultural differences about what animals are consumed, I am also not happy about any of it. What I do not do, is come in here to post after doing that kind of job at the SPCA, or having someone who did slaughter and or eat one (or more) of the animals that we have all loved and lost, come in here to offer sympathy, and then discuss their meal or day's work in that post.
Am I wrong? I don't think so.

This world is a terrible place with terrible things happening, but there is a time and place for discussions of all things, you just have to be sure to use the right place at the right time.

while this topic seems to have created a bit of animosity, typically i am not one to censor posts that offer unpopular opinions or beliefs.

so understand that i have removed certain posts within this topic not because i agree or disagree with the points made, but because the posts in question took the thread off-topic and outside the realm of its intended purpose. these posts are not deleted if the topic starter wishes for them to return as they were. please message me if this is the case.

its a tough path to tread here, folks. i try my best not to make value judgements. though Ken/Duncan may have been callous in stating his beliefs using the words he chose, they were still his beliefs. nobody can really say whether another person's beliefs are right or wrong...there just needs to be the right time and place to discuss them openly and without retribution. this thread was not the place since it contradicted the original poster's reason to post.

trying to keep the peace, as always....

Well, that is certainly a sweet picture of Gordon and again, as I said in my first post here, I am very sorry for your recent losses.

I also have to say I love that picture of Chance and his first Christmas. That should be the picture for a December Calendar. I know it would make me smile to see it in the Christmas month. rolleyes.gif

I would caption it....'Not a creature was stirring...not even a......."

It is obvious Chance was definitely waiting for Santa......Wonder what he got for his first Christmas? A favorite Cheese? or ?

Your furbabies were lucky to know you and I know you felt lucky knowing and having all of them over the years...as I do for all the ones I also have had. I can't imagine my life without one.

Take Care...
