And then the morning came

And then the morning came. I took the mice out, snuggling each one as I put them in the temporary cage. I opened the cage where I found little Dixie, partially covered up, and gently removed her and put her down. I could see she had died sitting up and appeared to have been trying to eat a nibble of a yogurt drop. After preparing her burial cloth I took Dixie out to where the rest of her family is and placed her near her sister Pixie.

Sweetheart, even though I was there with you this morning, and I could see how hard it was for you, I want you to know I care very much...

I'm so sorry.
Rest in peace, Dixie.
