adam


On more serious topics, commiserations to Kathryn and Deirdre who lost Adam last night. You may recall my report on him in April. Apparently he succumbed to his illnesses/old age. He had a very good life, and as they are well aware, as a hairless little mouse he was pretty definitely destined to be a snake's dinner before they rescued him a few years ago and gave him a mouse mansion, so in that sense, every one of his days was a blessing. This is the picture K. sent out with her announcement. The relevance of the pants and vest are unclear - at least that is what he seems to me to be thinking.

Thank you for that lovely tribute to our amazing mouse. The clothes were a Christmas gift to Adam from my cousin. No, Adam never wore them - he didn't think the colour suited him. But he did eat the pine nuts.
