I haven't been on the boards much since I joined because I have been spending so much time babying my rats. Arrietty passed away this morning. She was over three years old, and had been battling pretty intense respiratory problems lately. She was always very prone to URIs, more than any other rat I have had.

Yesterday evening she took a sharp turn for the worse, I could hear crackling noises when she breathed. We were going to take her to an exotic animal vet this morning, but the poor thing didn't make it there.

I have to admit this was one of those times when the relief that her suffering is over is outweighing my grief. I just needed to share with other people who would understand.
