So I got my first rat back in January of 2016. I had first thought to name her Mod but later changed it to Sugar. Of all the rats to come in and out of my wife's lives, Sugar has been by far our sweetest and oldest. She's still with us and must be over three years old. Come January 2019 she'll have been with us three years now. Despite all of the cagemates she's lost she hasn't changed. Always being so loving and friendly. She's only slowed with her age and doesn't hold on to cage bars or my shoulder like she once did. But I'd be hellbound to find another rat that would ever surpass her. Only one other came close, our recently passed female Pumpkin. Only other rat we have to match Sugar in age is our albino and third rat, Snow.
