#ThrowbackThursday - Our First True Loves

Waffles @ 12 weeks old
WAFFLES:  Before I fell in love with chickens, my first true love was a grey mouse.

KATIE:  So what happened to the mouse?

WAFFLES:  Well first I ate his tail. Then his eyes fell off. And he got really skinny because every time we played, he'd lose a little more of his straw stuff.  But I still loved him.  Who was your first true love, Boss?

Katie@ 3 months old
KATIE:  My first true love was Glogirly. I think we knew from the moment we met we had something really special. 

WAFFLES:  Well it's a good thing you didn't eat her tail, Boss. And she's still got her eyes, so that's good too. But she doesn't really get any skinnier when we play. 

KATIE:  Well the skinny thing probably has more to do with jelly beans than anything else. But even if she lost her eyes or her hair fell out, she'd still be our girl. And we'd still love her. That's what it's all about, Waffles. That's what it means to have a forever home and a forever family.

WAFFLES:  Forever? That's a really long time, right?  

KATIE:  The longest, Waffles.

  14. I had a white mouse that I loved. First, he lost his eyes. Then eventually his tail so he was just a white body that I would play with every single day. Eventually his coat came off, and he was simply a mouse shaped piece of cardboard. Z-Girl says that's what happens when a mouse is batted underneath the refrigerator and the stove too many times. Anyway, we still called him White Mouse. He's no longer around. I think he fell victim to the Vacuum Cleaner. I don't think he's my first love though. Z-Girl is, and I snuggle with her every day so she doesn't forget. I was rescued very close to Valentine's Day so it is an important anniversary. Enjoy all the love!
