Thread: Goodbye my sweet boy

    Default Goodbye my sweet boy

    RIP Nicodemus aka "Deeba". Had to help him pass, paraplegic and suffering from malignant growths. It was so hard to say goodbye, was nuzzling my neck at the vet's. So hard to let a rat go that still has the capacity to eat and be affectionate, but it would have been selfish to keep him longer. I cried my eyes out, still crying when I think of it. This was my first two rats and both have now passed. I don't know how rat lovers handle the short lifespan, especially with mine being adopted from a laboratory, they weren't bred for longevity or genetic robustness. I guess I was lucky they had a full life but it is SO hard ushering them along.

    I'm very sorry for your loss of Deeba. It's never easy, but hopefully you can take comfort knowing that you made a loving choice for him.
