Kathryn Posted July 6, 2012 Share Posted July 6, 2012 DS has wanted a mouse forever. That creeped DH out, so we've tried one pet after another. We got two rabbits. They died two days and several hundred dollars later of hepatic coccidia. We adopted a cat. It bit and scratched and caused such a horrible infection in my mother that her hand swelled up to three times its normal size and we had the government called on us. We got a puppy. She ran away. Finally, after this run of bad luck, DH agreed to the mouse. We went to the pet store. He picked out the one he wanted. And, despite the fact that we'd read all about them and that males would fight, DH decided to get another one so YDS would have one too. After all, he said, they were in the same cage at the store. YDS's mouse has been constantly picking fights with ODS's mouse. We woke up this morning to find Ralph belly up, with his face eaten off. I'm so sad for ODS.
