The inevitable

Filed under: Family — Erwin @ 3:34 am

This was the part of kids-having-pets I was least looking forward to, so to speak.

Tonight around 9pm N‘s pet rat died. She had not touched any of this morning’s food and was moving unusually little all day. We had assured the boys that if she had not improved any by morning we would take her to the vet and find out what’s up, but now that won’t be necessary anymore, unfortunately.

It was N‘s first pet, so he’s not taking it so well. Sure, other pets have died but those belonged to grandparents (for instance) and that’s not quite the same. Hopefully he’ll feel a little better in the morning. 🙁
