Our sweet tiny little Pixie left us this morning after being held in Judy's
warm hands over 3 hours since 3am this morning.
She came to us with her sister Holly, being saved from being turned into
Pixie was much much smaller than her sister, barely larger than 2
mini-marshmallows put together.
Over time she grew up and eventually outgrew her sister a little bit. She
always had a good appetite and loved to get treats.
If you put your hand in her tank, she wouldnt try to bite, instead she'd
rear up on her back legs and use her front two paws to bat at your hand
until you went away or she fell over from thrashing at the air so much. She
wasn't one to like being held too much, though once you had her out she
wasnt bad at all.
She was quite the character, always peeking out to see what we were doing,
and seeing if whatever she could smell might be a treat she could have.
We had her tank on our coffee table, so she enjoyed being a nightly part of
our lives. When we'd sit and watch TV, she was right there, looking to get
our attention, and listening when we'd talk to her. She was such a bright,
lively little girl, and now her spot sits empty, and the table looks so bare
without her there looking back at us now. No longer will we be able to sit
and eat our dinner while she'd eat her tofu and share some time together.
Now she's with her sister and the dozens of other small souls who've
enriched our lives with their presence.
Rest in peace my tiny girl, you were so small in size, and yet so large in
life, we will never forget you.
