So much for worrying about Shasta, it seems Peony was the one I should've been worrying about. She and her sister were so tiny when they arrived, and really never grew much at all, so I have no clue how old they were, or if they aged faster or how long a mouse's life span is normally.
Peony was the little darling, who was handleable. Later on she decided to amend that and would shriek like a banshee if anyone tried to touch her. LOLOL...My little Princess.
She and Mini the natal rat were so in love with each other, you would think they were the same species. Where's Peony? Just look for Mini LOL
Such a brave little mouser
Peony and Shasta
Peony and Shasta again...they were reunited after Peony had to live with injured Macy until she recovered. Peony was so gentle and kind with Macy that it was the obvious choice.
Checking out the Cottage...she lived inside the house with Mini for ages
Then I started giving them hammocks
and especially pocket hammies, they would usually all pile in.

Mini and her meecey friends shall all miss her.
