Goodbye to Talon
My pet meadow vole, Talon, just died. I caught her in my kitchen about 6 months ago and have kept her in a fish tank. I’m not sure what happened. I apparently positioned her water bottle wrong and she may not have been able to reach it, but I fixed that this morning. I don’t think thirst would have a delayed effect like that. It may be old age (they normally live less than a year) or complications from an injury when she got out and was handled by my cat a couple weeks ago, but but she seemed fine less than 48 hours ago. I don’t really feel like writing a post today in consequence.
