Kimmie, Suki, the Pet of the Day
Name: Kimmie, Suki
Age: One year old
Gender: Female
Kind: Fancy Mice
Home: San Diego, California, USA
 
   After a short visit to a local pet store, my boyfriend and I purchased our first pet together, a feisty fancy mouse we named Suki. Being that Suki was an impulse buy, we didn't know much about mice. After reading a little about them, we decided Suki needed a friend. The next day, we bought Kimmie, a timid little mouse from the same tank. Kimmie and Suki instantly bonded.

    Our adorable little friends have been living with us for about a year now, and Suki has since developed a large mammary tumor. It looks extremely painful, but Suki has been such a trooper about it. She still loves to run her wheel, eat her favorite treats, and nap side by side with Kimmie. Kimmie has also been very supportive, too! She plays with and grooms her cagemate every day, and lovingly snuggles beside her.

    We know that Suki's time is almost up, so we give her all the love and spoiling she deserves. And even though Kimmie may still have lots of happy days ahead of her, she is loved and spoiled as well! Our mice have brought so much happiness to our lives, and we'll love and always remember them forever!
