A Tail of Two Mice

It seemed they had always been & would always be, friends.

Time could change much, but not that.

They were two halves of a whole, sharing a single spirit.

It was the spirit of friendship and it was alive and well.

-Winnie the Pooh

Rest in peace, Pepper Jack and Mrs. Mouse. Thanks for showing us that friendship exists in all species, no matter how small.

    So sorry for you loss of that sweet little one! Mom has always liked mice but never had one. She had over 100 Gerbils as a kid…breeder of sorts for Gerbils she tells me. The ones she kept were always very special to her and she still remembers when each of them passed and that was like 40 yrs ago!

    These two mice are just the cutest! I'm so sorry Pepper Jack passed away, I'm sure his sister missed him a lot. I hope you can find a new friend for her real soon. I love the photos, they are so creative – whereever did you find that adorable pink couch?
