I've had Shrieksy for over 2 years now and today she's been very lethargic... I had to pick her up and take her out of her cage. Her heart is beating so hard and her eyes are closed. She isnt having any problems breathing. She's just laying in my lap making a few jerking movements when I pet her. My hamster passed away the same way when I was a kid. I don't think she'll make it through the night

I'm so sorry... how is she doing now? Did she pull through? Old rats are wonderful, but it's so sad when it comes to be their time...

I'm so sorry to hear. I recently lost a 2 year old rat. I think he had a stroke and he was practically paralysed afterwards. He was really cold so I stayed with him the full night with a hot water bottle and he eventually died in my arms. I was glad to be there. Just comfort him as much as possible <3 prayers are with you
