Life Goes On



He was eaten by Brian and Nigel. By accident. He flew out of a cuddle and straight to his death :(
Not pretty.

  13. Silly me... I never thought you could cuddle a praying mantis. I just love that letter... those boys of yours are too gorgeous - although I won't be mentioning the whole cuddling insects thing to mine if that's ok.... you know how squeamish I am about scales? It sort of applies to bugs too! A x

  14. Oh dear poor wobles, our thoughts are with you at this sad time.

    PS we have plenty of locusts we could send up, I am not sure if they make good pets though!

  19. I think it so special he loved a praying mantis. What an animal lover you have. His hand writing and sentiments so sweet. You'll have to put this letter in the keepsake box. It's a gem! Sonia

  20. R.I.P. Wobles!...as sad as it is for your little boys...I'm trying not to laugh at your description of his untimely death. However I remember breaking my heart, as a little girl, over a guinea pig that ate it's waxed cardboard box and choked to death! Have a lovely Christmas with your boys. Robx

  21. I can't say I'm a fan of praying mantises, but that perfectly executed note left even me feeling a pang of sorrow at the loss of a loved pet. That's the sad thing about the food chain I guess :o(

  24. What a loving spirit your sweet boy has. No doubt taught to him by his mum. Sending best thoughts you way.

  25. Oh poor Wobles - at least the end was swift. It was a short but good life under the care of his human friends. Cuddles to your boys. x

  26. Ummm.. not sure who was exactly what.. but from your comments I'm gathering Wobles was a praying mantis (??) and Brian and Nigel are...lizards? or cats? I'm relatively new here, so bare with me...lol..

    In any event, I'm sorry for your loss, that had to be difficult to watch.

  27. Oh dear, such a fleeting life.

    In Australia I had a robust friend - a country girl, who interrupted my commiserations when her boys were mourning their parrot by saying firmly, "that's what pets are FOR." They are tough in the Outback.

  28. Kristian's Memorial Service for his Praying Mantis last night was so beautiful. We lit a candle in the herb garden, made a little cross out of toothpicks and lay a little note in the garden saying that it was in memory of 'Wobles'. Kristian read out his note, crying his little heart out. Brynley wrapped his arm around him and Kristian lay his head on Brynley's chest while he cried. In the candle light, with the last rays of the sun behind them, it was a scene that took my breath away... their innocence, their love for each other, their compassion, Kristian's pure grief. I have it burned into my memory forever.

  30. That is the sweetest thing I have ever read. Be strong boys, Wobles has gone to Mantis heaven where they have the most amazing branches for him to woble on =0)
    Huge hugs for you both.

  31. Oh my A-M...and here you thought it would be Nigel first. Rest in peace dear Wobles. You were SO loved during your brief time on this Earth.

    XO, Andrea

  32. Eeek! Poor Wobles! And to think you were worried about poor Brian meeting his demise!

    I'm sure Wobles knows how much he was loved and how much he's being missed. He's the luckiest Praying Mantis ever to have had such a loving & caring home :-)
