Once again, I am not sure how to begin. In fact, I don’t even know what happened today. My brain hasn’t processed that there is an empty cage sitting upstairs in my room.
The ever-tiny, always-hyper, little miss Button was put to sleep this afternoon (November 5). She had grown, against the odds, to be two years, six months, and twenty-two days old. But her tumor had gotten too large. (more…)

One thing I’ve learned about Button over the past two years is she is very particular about how her home is decorated. When the girls were younger, every time I finished cleaning the cage Button would spend a good fifteen minutes making a mess of things until all was just as she wanted. (more…)

Yesterday after playing with Bunny and Button and putting them back in their cage, I sat down to watch them for a bit. They nibbled on some food and did a little home redecorating before settling into opposite corners of the cage’s bottom level for a nap. They were so adorable as they slept that I couldn’t help but snap a couple pictures of them.
