Athos, the mouse formerly known as Ace, died today. We discovered him early this afternoon, lying on the floor of the boys' cage.

As with Rem, Athos appeared perfectly healthy before his death, and we can find no explanation for why he died. Like all of our boys, Athos had turned into a rather plump adult, but other than that he was a fully active and happy little guy.

Athos is the first of our baby mice to die; he was a little more than eight months old.

Athos was a good mouse; we will miss him.
