The inevitable (part 2)

Filed under: Family — Erwin @ 3:37 pm

A year and just over a month after the previous one died, sometime last night A‘s rat died. She wasn’t looking very healthy yesterday evening but we were hoping to still have her with us this morning and see a vet. I know these critters aren’t expected to live particularly long, but I wish they’d live a little longer than this (he had her for 1 year and just under 2 months, N had his for 1 year and just under 6 months, if I remember correctly).

He’s already talking about a replacement, but just as with N, we’ll give him (and ourselves) a few weeks before getting back to him about that.

I’ll keep my fingers crossed that the two rats that were introduced to the household a year ago will live longer than this.
