I would like for people to share with me their techniques for coping with the loss of their rat(s). As my first rats begin to approach 2 years old I can't help but think that it won't be too long before I'll have to cope with losing them. One of the things I am concerned about is what to do after death. My mother has suggested cremation, but I'm not sure I could afford something like that. What have you done with your loved ones?
